The event featured a comprehensive program of activities, including the opportunity to enjoy Habanos and pairings with different drinks, like Havana Club Rum, champagne or sparkling wines.

 

A master class, dictated by El Laguito Cigar Factory’s sales manager Reynol Pérez Pereira, and the topics discussed, such as the history of Habano factories and the role played by storage conditions in the quality of Habanos, attracted the attention of the participants.

 

The activity was also livened up by the delivery of prizes to the winners of the blind tasting session and the recognition of Habano specialists. The event came to a close with a dinner accompanied by Cuban band Habana Sublimes.

 

Attendees reveled in two special vitolas of Vegas Robaina (XV Aniversario) and Saint Luis Rey’s Pacíficos, two Regional Editions for Canada and the Asia Pacific region.

 

The dinner was also a special moment to celebrate the 84th birthday of Mr. Villiger, chairman of 5th Avenue Products Trading Co.
