What originally drove me to live in Latin America wasn’t the sex, sun and salsa. Rather, it was a fascination with the politics, culture and society in this part of the world.

Through my experience, I was able to learn a thing or two about cigars and lucky enough to try a multitude of varieties from different countries.

Here are some of my favourites.
