  • La Gloria Cubana Serie R

    I just returned about a week ago from New Orleans, where the annual RTDA cigar industry trade show was held this year. Man, talk about a roll in the catnip. I always look forward to RTDA - catching up with friends in the industry, working out deals, discussing new projects, smoking 20 cigars a day....and hatching schemes to destroy the competition (he he he). It's sensory overload, with cigars as …

  • Pueblo Dominicano

    The La Aurora factory is not typical. It's a sprawling compound consisting of dozens of buildings resembling more a Fortune 500 company's campus in the United States than the usual Central American or Dominican cigar factory. In some of the buildings they brew beer including Heineken and Presidente; in still others they make cigarettes such as Marlboro, or machine-made cigars, or flavored …
