Lane smoking lately

AVO Ritmo – not a big fan, but like South American tobacco in general

La Careme – Loved it! Like smoking chocolate Mouse, Pepper spice

Eiroa First 20 years Colorado was solid. I think it is a risk to name it so similar to the original release. Tough to follow such a good one. CLE has had a good run of new releases.

Davidoff Yamasa was great!

Muestra de Saka from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust – Saka outdid himself on this one

Foundations Cigar Co. – Coming in to the shop soon

AJ Fernandez – coming into the shop soon

To me, Miami was supposed to be a stepping stone – a place to gather ourselves before I made it big in New York as a jazz musician. Things happen for a reason, and it’s clear now that Miami was the right place for me, and the place that pushed me to discover – and master – my true calling in life.” – Ernesto Perez-Carrillo

I smoke because I want to feel not just the senses around the palate, but the whole body. When I tasted a Cuban Davidoff cigar in 1982, that’s what I felt. And that experience is what I try to replicate in my cigars – a total sensuous smoke.” – Ernesto Perez-Carrillo

Today, Ernesto gives credit to his father for teaching him most of what he knows about cigars. As young as 4 years old, he would spend countless hours with his father in the tobacco fields in Cuba’s prime growing region, the Vuelta Abajo. It was in Cuba where Ernesto began to appreciate the art of growing tobacco. The most valuable lessons Ernesto learned from his father were from the examples he set in his everyday life – dedication to work, humility, patience and respect. These are the same principles behind each cigar created by Master Blender Ernesto Perez-Carrillo today.
