EP – It was always a dream of mine to have control over a certain percentage of the cigars that I have made.It’s very expensive to manufacturer cigars in Miami. It was an opportunity to take that work force and tap into that knowledge of tobacco from all of the people here.At the end of this article is a link to a downloadable Excel file originally created for my own use to assist with blend calculations.The following paragraphs describe its design and functions.

You can both see the process and sit down to enjoy a cigar at the same time.
