We have had the opportunity to visit A.J.'s factory and farms in Nicaragua on two occasions. It was there that we developed our taste for all of the cigars he makes.
Matt Booth is one of the most affable people you will ever meet and he makes some of the country's best cigars. Whether it is Room 101, Farce or The T, you can't go wrong with one of his cigars.
Oscar is another cool guy. He makes cigars and wraps them in tobacco leaf as a part of the presentation. But that is not the best part of his cigars.
Eric Espinoza is the man in charge at Espinoza Cigars. Like Matt Booth, you can't be around him and not feel the energy.
We met Juanita on our first trip to Cuba. Once we tried her cigars, they immediately became our favorite. Juanita is always our FIRST stop when we get to Havana.
The farm that Hector operates is in the Pinar del Rio area of Cuba which is the prime tobacco growing area. His cigars reflect both the superior tobacco and the blending skills of one of Cuba's premier cigar makers.
Smoke Through the Gold is the byword for Cavalier Cigars and Sebastian is the owner and guiding influence. His cigars are made in the Dominican Republic of the highest quality tobacco. Each cigar is an experience to have.
Tony is our Venezuelan cowboy. Tony's family have been in the cigar business for a long time, but he recently entered the premium cigar market in a big way with his Stallone Cigar Company. Represented by one of our favorite guys, Todd Vance - this brand is a go to.
Nick has been a keystone in the growth of The D.I.C.K.S.. He took us on our first trip to Cuba and later took us to Costa Rica where he helped us blend our D.I.C.K.S. cigars. His two brands, LH Cigars and Nick cigars are exceptional.
