The traditional reading. This is a good old tradition in the Havana cigar factories: the reader (Lector) is reading newspapers and good literature to the torsedors during the working day, while they are busy rolling cigars. (read here about Cuban torsedors).

The Auction was traditionally conducted by Simon Chase.

The Dinner and the concert of the best musicians and artists were stunningly staged and beautifully performed. But actually every Gala Dinner in Havana at the end of every Habanos Festival is unforgettable, high class, a really stunning event to visit.

This humidor is one of the Auction humidors of the XVII Festival del Habano. To my opinion, it was the most stylish one.

This line of habanos has adorned the Festival del Habano, or Habanos’ Festival 2015. These stunning and delightful cigars will definitely make a pride to cigar collectors and aficionados.
