Arcenio Ramos is 73 years old and a legendary leaf expert in the Cuban Cigar industry, who now works for Tabacalera Tropical as a master blender. Senor Ramos worked with Paul Palmer (President of Tropical Tobacco) to concoct the latest blends for our cigars. The blends were selected by Jim Cronin from various blends presented to him. Jim places balance and complexity of flavor at the top of his criteria when selecting blends. These cigars are carefully constructed in Tropical's new Raices Cubanas (Cuban Roots) factory in Honduras. Also worth mentioning is that all of these cigars are draw tested by machine and must pass the draw test. These cigars draw and burn beautifully!
