What do you enjoy most about working with cigars?
Serving the costumers and help them to choose the perfect cigar.
What first interested you in cigars?
The expression of satisfaction on the face of those who smoke cigars.
Do you remember your first cigar?
Indeed, I'll never forget the unpleasant experience that I had with a Partagas Serie P No.2. Nobody told me it was one of the stronger Cuban cigar and I smoked it with an empty stomach (never make this mistake especially with a strong cigar). But I didn't give up and I started to smoke something smaller and milder and so I accustomed my palate to the flavors and the nicotine.
What is the best piece of advice you have for someone just starting to smoke cigars?
Make sure you have time to smoke a cigar, even if is a Panatela!
What are your favorite three cigars?
Trinidad Reyes with a coffee, Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 mostly after lunch and Ramon Allones Specially Selected after dinner
Has becoming a Master in Havana Cigars helped you in your profession?
Indeed, becoming a Master of Habanos helped me to feel more confident with the costumers.
