2011 Big Smoke Saturday Seminars: Top Three Legal Cigars of 2010 Tasting
Posted: November 2, 2011

“Jorge is very cagey with details,” said Savona. “I ask him what’s in it and he says ‘Oh, you know, I make my cigars you write your stories and that’s all you really need to know.’ He does tell me that he puts old tobacco in here. Think back to where you were 10 years ago because that’s when some of the seeds for this tobacco were planted. You’re smoking some of the oldest tobacco from the Padróns. These guys love tobacco and take great care to make great cigars like this one. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
There’s no set rule as to when audience members should smoke certain cigars. Some follow the show, smoking the cigars when they are introduced, others just smoke whatever looks interesting, and others are so impressed by the rarity of their packet that they don’t smoke them at all, but save them for another time.
Regardless, the three cigars of the Saturday seminars were a diverse representation of the industry and the perfect score to a day of tobacco education, and, more importantly, enjoyment.
