Back in early March of this year Matt and I took a trip down to Nicaragua. We had the wonderful opportunity to go with Scott de la Peña of Hermosa Cigars. He took us to the factory where his cigars are made and introduced us to Noel Rojas. Noel showed us every step in the cigar making process from seed to cigar. While Noel is only in his early 30’s, his history with tobacco goes back to Cuba where he once worked in the fields and later crafted custom rolled cigars for tourists. Every Sunday Noel sits down with Arsenio Ramos (Casa Fernandez) for coffee and cigars to soak up the wealth of knowledge it requires to make great cigars. Well, kick back with a coffee and a cigar because Noel always provides the same.
