What do you enjoy most about working with cigars?

Each brand has its own romance, and each person adds their own story and experience to that.

What first interested you in cigars?

Watching my father smoke them. Wherever you were, that intoxicating aroma of an Habanos meant I knew my father was there in one way or another.

Do you remember your first cigar?

I actually don’t remember where but it was a Monty 4…perhaps it is hard to remember because I was inevitably too young.

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

You don’t smoke the band too.

What are your favourite three cigars?

Partagas Lusitania, Por Larranga Petit Corona, Trinidad Fundadores

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

Without doubt, however what it has given me personally is more rewarding.
