Inside the Autumn Issue
COVER: JOSÉ O. PADRÓN – The founder of the world-renowned brand Padrón is considered a living legend in the cigar industry. We spoke to him about the most moving events in his life, as well as his upcoming autobiography. Memorable Moments in My Life does not merely document the life of the patriarch and thus a story about realizing the American dream – it is also a piece of contemporary history.
TOBACCO HARVEST – The harvest is one of the most important processes in the production of tobacco. In our new issue, cigar advisor Gary Korb dedicates himself to the different methods of harvesting and explains how volado, seco, ligero and medio tiempo are produced through the leaf priming process, and what stalk cutting means.
TRAVEL – We’ve been on the road a lot and have explored the cigar scene in Kuala Lumpur for you. What’s more, we give traveling passionados in-depth information about where to find the best places in Buenos Aires, Nashville, Chicago, Santiago (Chile), and Prague to sit back and enjoy.
GREAT WALL CIGARS – The first cigar factory was founded in China in 1918. Largely outside the attention of the international cigar scene, Great Wall Cigars has now increased its work with international experts in the Chinese province of Sichuan to establish its cigars on the home market and, ultimately, internationally.
BLIND TASTING – Awarded 94 points in this issue, the Padrón Serie 1926 No. 90 Natural was the most favored by our panel members. Five other cigars scored an excellent 93 points: Rocky Patel’s Twentieth Anniversary Toro, La Flor Dominicana’s 1994 Conga, as well as a Perdomo 20th Anniversary, and two new Davidoff cigars.
