Seeing the creation of a favorite cigar; what better way to further appreciate these little masterpieces? How do cigar-rollers ensure that each cigar draws perfectly and has the perfect blend of flavors? All your questions about the cigar production process can be answered by touring several of the world's top factories.
Where seeds become the raw material for cigars - the tobacco fields. Tall plants will be harvested while we are in Nicaragua. Depending upon the harvest schedule we will be able to view at least one phase of the process in the fields and tobacco barns. Tobacco fields in Nicaragua are set against the dramatic background of the mountainous countryside.
Dinner with Manufacturers:
Cigar makers travel constantly. Between cigar shop appearances and visits to their factories, they have very little time to relax. During this trip to Nicaragua, we will have the unique opportunity to find them with a little free time. At at least one dinner we will have the opportunity to relax and have cigars in the Nicaraguan ambiance.
Have you ever critically evaluated aged sipping rums? Have you ever had Nicaraguan rums with over ten years of age? Taste these rums with experienced tasters, and, of course, cigars.
