(continued from page 3)

Carrillo: Yes. It will be on the cigar box or bundle. We have to mark that on the bottom.

CA: But not on the band.

Carrillo: No.

CA: Is the blend exactly the same?

Carrillo: The blend is the same blend that we use in the Miami factory: Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco.

CA: Let's talk about the blend of La Gloria Cubana, just to make it clear. The wrapper is from where?

Carrillo: Ecuador.

CA: The binder?

Carrillo: It's from Nicaragua.

CA: And the filler?
