Aged cigars are beautiful, rare things. As I tour the Partagas cigar factory, the quality control supervisor, Deborah Garcia Zulueta, brings out a box of Don Joaquims toward the end of the tour. The cigars inside are 48 years old, relics of a Cuba long gone by. Three workers color-sorting fresh cigars gather round the box and take a moment to stare at the cigars inside, which are older than they are. It's a simple moment that brings a smile to my face, a scene that makes the cigars I bought on this trip seem just a bit more precious than before.
