Ministry of Cigars - Vertical La Ley tastings in Kuala Lumpur

La Ley and From Soil to Soul

The La Ley brand was blended and developed by Houvenaghel and his close friend A.J. Fernandez. Fernandez is also responsible for the production of all of Houvenaghel’s cigars. Besides La Ley, Houvenaghel makes La Preferida, Nicarao, and La Furia cigars, all are available in Europe and several other international markets. The brands are under the umbrella of DH Boutique cigars.

Houvenaghel is also the author of From Soil to Soul. He used his degree in agricultural engineering, for which he studied in Belgium and in Pinar del Rio, Cuba, to write the most comprehensive book on tobacco ever. The book is out of print, but every once in a while a copy can be found on eBay or Amazon. But not to worry, Houvenaghel is working on an upgraded version of the book.
