Mitchell Herfing at Clayton

My travels took me to Pennsylvania to visit our friends at Cigars International in Bethlehem where we are having a lot of fun working on some very cool projects together and then on to beautiful Chicago (unseasonable but very nice weather too) where I enjoyed hosting a few Pre Embargo Havana cigar tasting events at The Clayton.

Sara's Cuba Trip
14/03/17

During my trip to Cuba I was lucky enough to travel to Pinar del Rio to visit La Vega de Ledesma tobacco plantation. The harvest of the tobacco had recently been completed so a lot of the crops had been cut down. The tobacco leaves had been taken to the air curing barns to remove the moisture and to turn the leaves from green to the beautiful brown we know and love for the cigars.
