Radhames Rodriguez, of Tabacalera El Artista, took a few minutes to talk to us about what he feels makes a perfect cigar.

Transcript:

Hi, my name is Radhames Rodriguez from Tabacalera El Artista. For me a good cigar, the first thing is it has to have a very good construction on it. The most important thing is how you feel when you are smoking it. You want something to fulfill your palate, that kind of blows your mind in some way, that makes you start thinking what’s in it.

For me, I like to play a lot with the different types of tobacco. So a perfect cigar is the one that, I don’t know, I cannot, I have no idea what’s in it, how all those leaves got together inside to form this great piece of art.

Something you just enjoy and to have a perfect draw and you simply can get it and relax smoking it.
