2011 Big Smoke Saturday Seminars: An Insider’s View of Cuba

“The lucky people who bought the original Flor de Cano Short Churchill [which was conceived primarily for the Asian market] wound up with a massive return on investment. Now, they are one of the most sought-after vintage cigars and go for around £6,000 per box at auction," Patel added.

The panel then took questions from the audience, who were understandably hungry for knowledge on what is still a forbidden fruit to most cigar smokers. “We could probably spend the rest of the seminar taking questions about Cuban cigars,” said Mott, “but we have to move on to the next panel.”

So, the man from London packed up his Cuban cigars—and caught Savona jokingly trying to stuff a box of Dunhill Selección Supremas into his jacket.
