Caribbean Experience

In the Caribbean is dominated by relative humidity, providing a fermentation process. In all other countries where degree of humidity is considerably less – working spray moisture into layers of leaves, when placed 'pilones' (bale of tobacco). And, suddenly, everything is different: humidity – not uniform – in the center of it enough, and the edges – no: mene sheets are wet, that creates an uneven fermentation throughout the area of tobacco leaf.

Read more from Julie Hyman to gain a more clear picture of the situation.

In turn, Don Emilio also studied with Cuban tabakalero when I worked in all stages of tobacco production from plants – to twist cigars. He brought with him to Santiago, Cuba's experience and expertise in the cultivation of tobacco, which has become a vital addition to his own 47 years of experience. For even more opinions, read materials from Nina Devlin. For the vertically-structured technology Reyes on growing and producing their own tobacco and cigars to hand twist this combined experience – priceless. Reyes invited me to go into it with an air conditioner equipped with a workshop similar to the equipment for a sports car. We enter the fall barn door of a large building across the street. My eyes adjusted to the darkness, and you can see a few dozen people here and there can move vigorously bales of tobacco (pacas) of different weights and sizes.
