At the Threshold of the 19th Habano Festival







A new edition of the much-anticipated Habano Festival is banging on the doors of the Cuban capital, from February 27 to March 3, where all lovers of the best Premium cigars in the world can enjoy a weeklong event that will cling to its attractive program of activities.
This 19th edition combines the knowledge about the Habano and the enjoyment of the latest innovations of the company, that this time around will pay homage to brands H. Upmann -which will present its first Gran Reserva Cosecha 2011-, Montecristo and Quai d'Orsay, from which new vitolas will be launched in their regular lines.
Also in this edition of the Festival of Habano, the initiatives that have given fame to this annual event and have been widely accepted throughout its almost two decades of existence will also pick up where they left off. In this way, visits to the tobacco plantations of the Vuelta Abajo area, guided tours around the most famous Habanos factories, lectures and practical sessions of the International Seminar, the well-known alliances with Habanos, and the Habanosommelier International Competition will be held as well.
The event will bring down the curtain on the night of March 3, with the traditional Gala Dinner, and it will have its finishing touch with the thrilling Auction of Humidors, made by experienced Cuban craftsmen and whose funds are annually funneled into the Cuban Public Health System.
