Weekly news week 50 2019. On Sunday we published a thank you to Fidel Castro. We thanked him for creating a cigar industry outside of Cuba. For all the great Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Honduran cigars that most likely would not have existed without his communist reign on Cuba. Without stealing the factories and the intellectual properties of cigar manufacturers, there wouldn’t have been an exodus of knowledge and skills. That knowledge and skill is the foundation of the cigar industry outside of Cuba. And this week, we reviewed the Alec Bradley Project 40 Robusto and the Skull 77 El Unico.
