What is something people don't know about cigars and/or the cigar rolling process?

"Premium cigars are entirely handmade, containing only long leaf tobacco."

Premium cigars are entirely handmade, containing only long leaf tobacco. There are no machines in our process nor are there chemicals like one finds in cigarettes.�

Where do you get your passion for cigars from?�

"[Smoking cigars] is a weekly ritual of [my husband and myself] which gives us an opportunity to connect."

I enjoy smoking cigars and learning more about cigars with my husband, Leroy, as it is a weekly ritual of ours which gives us an opportunity to connect. We use this time to�release the stresses of the past week, relish the weekend, and ready ourselves for the week ahead. Life is often filled with stress and busyness. Taking the time to pause for each other through the�union of cigars and conversations makes these times like none other.

What is unique about your cigars?
