The Cigar Roller We Have Inside


28/02/2013

It’s a genuine bash every year and it’s the Hand Rolling Master Class what we’re talking about. This time around, many attendees were put through their paces who, just like the cigar roller apprentices, were supposed to make a Petit Edmundo.

By the hand of seasoned cigar rollers from several factories in Havana, the students attempted far more than just rolling their own Habano because eventually they learned the innermost secrets of this traditional trade that has given Cuba the possibility of climbing to the top of the premium cigar market worldwide. 

Using legit tobacco leaves from Vuelta Abajo and after getting the blend ready, the apprentices pressed the binder in and shrouded their cigars with the wrapper. The end results varied and some of them didn’t even burn after the job was done. However, the ride was worth the fall, and the experience couldn’t get any better.
