Cuban Cigar Roller Completes Tour of Asia

Master Cuban cigar roller Marleny Martin Montesino concludes her tour of Asia this week with live rolling demonstrations in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Marleny has been rolling at La Casa Del Habano Malaysia, located in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Kuala Lumpur as well as other cigar stores and lounges across the city. Last Friday, she helped celebrate Cuba’s National Cultural Day at a special event at the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba. La Casa del Habano Malaysia co-sponsored this event which welcomed distinguished guests to celebrate all aspects of Cuban culture. Marleny is a master cigar roller based in Villa Clara and is now a factory team leader – her tour of Asia is her first experience abroad.
