2012 Big Smoke Sunday Seminars—Roll Your Own Cigar

Giannini stretched the tension again as he fumbled with the bag to read out the name: Ron Taylor.
Taylor was in shock as he came to the stage through a thunder of applause. It was his fourth Big Smoke and his third time rolling at the seminars. Taylor, who hails from Omaha, Nebraska, told his wife earlier in the weekend that he felt confident going into the contest.
Taylor won two humidors full of La Gloria Cubana cigars with nearly a decade of age. Giannini handed him an extra box of Serie R so that he can "have something to smoke" for the moment.
As Taylor posed for photos with Giannini, holding up his prizes, some members of the crowd were reassessing their own work, wondering if it could be them up there next year.
