This experience focuses on the difficult process of making a cigar. From the hand of an experienced cigar roller we will learn to make an examplar, while we will explain all the specificities that accompany the process of making this product, from the time it is grown, until it reaches your hands. This will be the perfect time for our CIGAR CHALLENGE, on which we will reward the best cigar roller of the experience. After choosing our winner (special ceremony included), we will go on to what we consider to be an authentic ritual: the smoking of the habano, action that we will combine with other delights, giving way to an excellent pairing among cigars, rum and coffee. And then, SURPRISE, a second contest!!!! We will be competing amon each other to select the person who manages to keep the longest cigar ash, and the one who best performs some other tricks we will be teaching you. This is called: LONG ASH CONTEST. At the end of the experience more gifts will come, and that is because we do not want you to leave without taking with you souvenirs related to this experience, so you will be bringing home with you some amazing memories but also little things that will forever remind you of Cuba. IMPORTANT NOTE: Our schedule varies according to your needs and preferences. We can have our tour during the morning , the afternoon or at night.
I am a young Cuban who has always had a passionate enthusiasm for cigars, their history and the complexity of the production process. I am the host of the experience Cigars: the heart and soul of Cuba, dedicated fundamentally to the knowledge of the art of making and smoking a tobacco, but above all it focuses on the cultural impact of tobacco in Cuban society I have the influence of my grandfather, who grew up in Pinar del Rio cultivating tobacco, and has always talked to me about this difficult but gratifying experience. Today, I am glad to share my greatest passion with my beloved friends and cohosts Ramón, Osmel and Viviana, and of course, with you.
