1)when did you start to smoke cigar?
I started smoking cigars in 1996 during that time I smokes occasionally. It was not until 2002 that I started smoking more frequently when I was 100% involved in the cigar industry.
2)why did you start to smoke cigar?
My dad started a cigar manufacturing business and a year into it there was a cigar boom. (Mid 90s)
3)how many cigars do you smoke during the day?
I normally smoke at least 1 cigar per day sometimes 2 but when I’m on the road once a month for a week at a time promoting or at an industry show I will smoke 6 or 7 cigars in one day.
4)which is the best place you have smoked a cigar?
Every time I smoke a cigar is the best place and best time. To me there’s a story behind every cigar I smoke.
5)what do you use to cut the cigar?
I use my nails to cut the cigar and I make a perfect bullet cut or a diamond cut with my nails.
6)how do you feel while you are smoking?
It always relaxes me to smoke.
7)when do you light your first cigar of the day?
Sometimes I light up my first cigar after a good espresso in the morning. If I’m blending something on a clean palate first thing in the morning.
8)which is the best cigar for you?
The best cigar for me right now is our 90 MILES 1980 Edition.
This cigar has such complexity that the taste and aroma is superb.
The blend was 100% my creation and I’m ecstatic about the result of the blend and the results of the sales on that particular line as well.
Thank you very much Yadi for the time you have spent with us. Good ashes.
