Cigar Journal: Missing Partagas Manager

Cigar Journal reported the curious removal of Abel Exposito from the Partagas Cigar Store position. Cigar smuggling perhaps? All comments welcome.

"Abel Exposito has mysteriously left his position at the Partagas.

November 14, 2012. Rumors are swirling around Havana as Abel Exposito has mysteriously left his position at the Partagas factory cigar store. The store, a La Casa Del Habano franchise, is iconic due to its location inside the Partagas factory. But more than that, Abel has turned the store into a meeting place for international cigar lovers visiting Havana. 

Cigar Journal has confirmed that Abel is no longer working in the store and that he has been replaced by Rene Valdez. Mr. Valdez previously worked at the Romeo y Julieta factory."

Five years old!


I just came to realize, that it has been five years since i started writing World of Cigars... Wow! Time flies when you're having fun, eh?

I want to thank all of my readers and supporters for the ride. It has been a pleasure so far, and i can't wait for the next five!

I will try to dig something special from the depths of my humidor to review as the "5th anniversary celebration cigar". Keep reading!

cheers,

Mikko

Unique humidor project - 1950's school desk

I wanted to share this item with you, as i consider it to be extraordinarily fantastic!


It is a refurbished school desk from the 1950's transformed into a cigar humidor/station by Alan Gwiz. It is beautifully restored and built, and really a unique piece of the world of cigars! Check out these pics, simply beautiful!



You can find more on this and other projects by Alan from the Gwiz Shop at gwizshop.tumblr.com. I will be following his work closely and update you all on every development there is to report.

Great work Alan!




cheers,

Mikko
