The slow smoking

Every time I go back to Italy, I always go out for a pleasant dinner with my friend Carlo, an architect with a thousand passions, it's our tradition, we always have a nice chat, drinking rum, and he always likes smoking a good cigar. He regularly asks me, "Do you know that the best cigar you can find are made in the Dominican?”
So I can imagine if he ever visited the Emanuel Premium Cigars it would be very difficult for me to get him out, wherever you look, there are cigars and tobacco leaves ready to be rolled, the scent of 19 different blends and 10 different flavors mix with each other remind me of our relaxing dinners.
