A Great Collector

A 30-year-old Hong Kong businessman could have the greatest cigar collection in the world
James Suckling
From the Print Edition:
Richard Branson, Sept/Oct 2007

(continued from page 7)

Wong: You were there.

CA: I know.

Wong: Cuba is an amazing place. That is the first [place that] I have been where at 7:30 in the morning, everyone is smoking a double corona. I thought it was great. And in the afternoon, everyone is sitting on the terrace at the Nacional and smoking a cigar and drinking Mojitos.

CA: What do you think of non-Cuban cigars?

Wong: I like non-Cuban cigars too! Padróns are some of my favorites.

CA: Do you like the light wrapper or the dark wrapper?

Wong: I like the dark wrapper. And sometimes when you smoke these non-Cuban cigars, you realize how well they are constructed, how well they are made. The ash always burns through well. And I smoke Ashton VSGs as well.

CA: Where do you buy most of your cigars now? Here in Hong Kong?

Wong: Well, the new cigars, definitely Hong Kong.

CA: You can get everything and the prices are not too high anymore?
