What Terry Pomerantz thinks of Flor De Las Antillas Cigars

Terry Pomerantz has noticed that in the last few years, several new quality cigar brands have paved their way into the international market.

“Not so long ago, cigars were products that were almost exclusive to Cuba and the Dominican Republic. Now, we find quality cigars from Hoduras (La Estancia, Camacho), Mexico (Capa For Connecticut, Santa Clara), Costa Rica (Vegas de Santiago, Horacio Heritage) and Nicaragua. And very recently, I have discovered Flor de Las Antillas cigars.”
