But the corner factory does afford the cigar lover an opportunity to get up close and personal with an important part of America's cigar-making heritage. It's a dying breed, however, and something that the cigar aficionado should strive to support. For while you might not have the time to take the tour of Havana's Partagas factory or sip a beer and smoke a Preferido at La Aurora in the Dominican Republic, you will probably find your way to New York City, Miami or Union City, New Jersey. And there you will find a handful of cigar rollers—perhaps only one—doing something that's rare in twenty-first-century America: rolling cigars entirely by hand.
