3 Key Points:

  1. Gerald Anderson’s fascination with cigars happened 10 years ago at a friend’s whiskey party, paring different drinks with different cigars.
  2. Hand-rolled cigars use whole leaves, they smell better and smoke better than machine-made, and the smoke isn’t as toxic for you because there are no chemicals; just wrappers, tobacco, and fire.
  3. Cigarettes are about 90% chemicals and 10% tobacco. Cigars are 100% cured tobacco.
