I am from phoenix arizona and have a place on the beach in mexico so cuban cigars are as easy to get down there as anything else and are consistently very good. Im in Kauai with my daughter for her graduation and read an article on your company on the plane, and was of course intrigued and had to try one. To say I was skeptical is an understatement, especially after i saw the price. Nonetheless…..Fantastic. I would put your cigars up against anything I have had from cuba or anywhere else in the world. Whatever you are doing…..you certainly seem to be doing it right. My compliments.
