Tony Gomez in Bratislava

“When Maros ( Co-owner at Slovakian cigar distributor, My & Mi) told me there were going to be 65-70 people here I didn’t believe him, but here we are. I’m glad you all came out. Thank you.”
La Flor Dominicana’s Vice President, Tony Gomez was clearly happy with the turnout as their distributor My & Mi organized the first La Flor Dominicana event ever in Slovakia. In a casino underneath a shopping mall in a suburb to the capital Bratislava, there were actually even more than that present, around 80 people.
“It never happens in Europe otherwise,” he says.
“There are no events during summer so now everybody wants to come,” Miroslav Bajtos, owner of My & Mi adds.
The participants were treated to a dinner, drinks and three LFD cigars, the L-300, the El Jocko and the Cameroon Chisel.
“We’ve been selling their cigars since 2013,” Maros Bajtos says. “Last year we doubled the sales. Now we’ll see what happens after this event.”

Since graduating with an engineering degree in surveying in 2005, Simon Lundh has preferred to follow a profession in journalism. He stumbled upon the cigar world while working for a non-governmental organization in Estelí, Nicaragua, and is now mainly making a living writing about cigars, metal music, tattoos, and travel.
