Sales manager of Sotabac Premium Cigars, Ernesto López, presented the event putting an emphasis on the main features of Limited Editions and more particularly on the Allones Extra 2011. He outlined its history and the novelty of its ring, which takes up again its original design for this particular edition and so turning it, due to its exclusive and limited character, into a collector’s item.

He also enhanced the features of the H.Upmann Half Corona, a new cigar of the brand which balanced aroma, thick size and mild-medium flavour contribute to make it become one of the finest cigar for a moment of enjoyment especially for new smokers.

The institutional video of the XIVth Habanos Festival was also presented to the audience while they were given the opportunity to understand the meaning of these Festivals. In addition, they were urged to attend the 520th anniversary that marks the discovery of the tobacco by the Old World.

In the event, both the chairman of the Sotabac Premium Cigars and importer for the Canary Islands for more than 50 years, Mr. Gregorio Socorro Soto and the patriarch of the   Cuban originated Son music Compay Segundo’s sons, were presented with H.Upmann Noellas crystal jars because of their valuable contribution to the culture of the Habano for many years.

Later on, the cigars mentioned were tasted by the people attending the event together with Cuban cocktails mixed with Caney Rum as well as typical Cuban tapas, all accompanied by the traditional Cuban music.
