What do you enjoy most about working with cigars?

The thing I like the most is helping people approaching this world for the very first time with their choice, explaining them the world of cigars and how to best enjoy them, making sure The experience they’ll have will meet their expectations (so the world will have more cigar-addicted people like me)

What first interested you in cigars?

I started to be attracted by cigars the very first time I enter the humidor at The Wellesley, I simply loved it and since then I decided to develop my knowledge about the world of cigars.

Do you remember your first cigar?

It was a Montecristo n.4 during my first cigar training at The Wellesley, I remembered I quiet enjoyed it even if I didn’t know much about cigars. (I didn’t smoke it all).

What is the best piece of advice you have for someone just starting to smoke cigars?

For beginners I always recommend a light flavour cigar small to medium size to be enjoyed in the right amount of time. (medium to full flavour cigar is good as well, like I did).

What are your favourite three cigars?

My three favourite cigars are Partagas D.4, Diplomatico n.2 and H.Upmann Connoisseur A.

Has becoming a Master in Havana Cigars helped you in your profession?

For sure helped me a lot to get better understanding about how cigars are produced and how much hard work there is behind it. I increased my confidence and my knowledge to share with other people.
