Hot Ticket Score
You can get your hands on this cigar for just around $8.00 which makes it a pretty damn good deal. There isn’t anything challenging about this cigar, so in terms of recommendation, but really feel there are some out there that may find this cigar to not be in their wheelhouse. If you do grab one, do yourself a favor… Drink it in the morning with a good cup of coffee. You won't regret it.
Conceptualized 20 years ago when Don Rafael, manager of the small store next to my home, brought me to watch a torcedor (cigar roller) perform his art. The torcedor finished the cigar, handed it to me and said "Kid, welcome to the true gentleman's club"...
