Marvin R. Shanken
From the Print Edition:
Demi Moore, Autumn 96
(continued from page 17)
Cullman: Well, we're making more of this cigar, Partagas No. 10, than we've ever made. We're making more of the Prince Philip than we've ever made.
CA: Yes, but as a consumer, when I go into a store, your shelf is empty.
Cullman: It's just that the demand is outstripping us. So, I don't know how to change that.
CA: Well, as an example, how many Partagas No. 10s are you making today versus three years ago?
Cullman: Probably double what we made three years ago.
CA: But it's obviously not enough.
Cullman: Not enough.
CA: The reason given is that the shortage is in wrappers.
Cullman: There is a shortage, over the years, but we're now in good shape with large leaves.
CA: Is the production of double coronas and Churchills and so forth increasing rapidly?
