Part Three: Las Vegas Big Smoke Sunday Seminars

Roll Your Own With Team La Gloria
Gregory Mottola
Posted: November 19, 2009

(continued from page 1)

But after the laughter subsided, the judges seriously evaluated all the submitted cigars and held up a near perfect smoke rolled by David Reed of Richmond, Virginia. He was presented with the humidor and will be going to the Dominican Republic to General Cigar's factory for a first-hand look at how the mythic brand is made.

As Giannini handed Reed his prize box of cigars he said "When this box was first released three years ago, it retailed for $705. Now that it's out of production? Priceless."

The audience applauded and each member was handed a certificate proclaiming them an honorary roller of La Gloria Cubana cigars. As the cigar rolling items were collected, four glasses were upturned at every setting. A new seminar was about to take place. One that involved Bourbon. Thankfully, the razor blades and vegetable gum were removed before the drinking started.
