Linda Evangelista, Autumn 95
(continued from page 6)
Blumenthal: Vilco Imports, that was an import company that imported cigars from Jamaica, Mexico and the Philippines. We represented the Tabacalera here in the United States. But that's now just part of Villazon.
C.A.: How many Hoyo de Monterrey do you expect to sell in 1995?
Blumenthal: About eight million.
C.A.: Versus what in '94?
Blumenthal: Last year we sold about the same number. I don't think I can produce any more.
C.A.: Of the eight million, what percent would be Excalibur?
Blumenthal: About half.
C.A.: And Punch in 1995?
Blumenthal: Punch in 1995, we think we'll sell about the same.
C.A.: Eight million? And is that 50/50 with the Grand Cru?
