CA: Is there any Jamaican tobacco that goes into it?
DiMeola: Absolutely. There always has been.
CA: In the filler? The binder?
CA: What percentage of it might be...
DiMeola: The vast majority. It's a majority.
CA: Is it a fact that it's going to happen?
DiMeola: It's not a fact. It's still in negotiations.
CA: And you hope to resolve that negotiation in the coming months?
DiMeola: We hope to resolve it in the coming weeks. It won't be totally resolved, but we're getting close. [Weeks after the interview, DiMeola informed Cigar Aficionado that the first cigars would come out of Consolidated's Jamaican plant in June.]
