From New York to Cuba, beware of the Local “Hand Rolled” Cigar Show
Hola! Don Gregory here, with a quick bit of Intel for you all….I have been in this business, here in Tampa Bay Florida for over 22 years. Since 1995, I have owned several cigar stores, a wholesale distributorship and a wonderful little Tampa cigar factory(one of the FIRST) with Cuban rollers for 10 years.
I’d like to tip you off to an old local cigar roller trick. It’s called: the “Re-roll“. This is an old trick where the local torcedor :
- Does not actually roll the inner FILLER leafs of the cigar together
- Takes a cheap “Bundled Cigar” and just rolls on an OUTER WRAPPER leaf for “SHOW“
- Convinces you that he’s labored all day for this unique work of art
- Gets you to pay $9-$15 each, for a $1.50 stick, and the honor of being called “Gringo”
…and bada bing, you’ve been cigar screwed! Ya, sure, technically he can advertise that this crafted premium stogie is a “Local Hand Rolled Cigar” – just like I can say my car keys are “local hand rolled”. But certainly, you have been played, my friend.
