Cigar Workshop In Havana, Cuba: One Of The Richest Experiences I've Ever Done!

Intro


Cigar workshop? What does that entail? When I found this activity on Civitatis, I was slightly confused about what to expect. However, after experiencing the cigar workshop, it was a one-of-a-kind experience.


For 127$, the cigar workshop included transportation from Edo, himself. It also consisted of making your own cigar, drinking a lot of rum, and having lengthy discussions about life.


The Tour


A Cuban, A Frenchman, An Englishman, and A Brazilian walk into a bar. After being picked up by Edo and picking up the other member participating in the tour, we headed to Edo's bar.


There was a huge bar when we walked in, where we would later go through each Cuba rum (there were many) and learn about their history.


A beautiful scene for the night

We headed upstairs to a room with all of the cigar-making equipment. Of course, rum was accompanied, all evening in fact😂.


We went through the process of making cigars which included the four leaves.


A rich experience

After going through the history, we continued to use all 4 leaves to make our cigars. Edo taught us how to use the "guillotine" and for a moment I felt like Napoleon, just joking.


Napoleon invention?

Once we made our cigars and placed them in the mold, we selected a cigar from Edo's personal collection to smoke downstairs.


Gorgeous scenes

We sat around for a couple of hours learning the Cuban traditions of smoking a cigar. I didn't know much about smoking a cigar but by the time I knew it, it was 11 pm. I ended up placing the wrong side of the cigar in my mouth and exhaling it into a glass, then drinking the shot😂. Seriously, it was one of the most unique things I've ever done in my life.


Final Thoughts


Don't think about it, book it. This was one of the most incredible experiences I have ever had that consisted of real-life talk. Do you ever get that feeling when the world disappears because you are engulfed in the world? That is the feeling I got.


If you are interested in booking this tour you can contact Edo on WhatsApp at +33613260684


Once again I don't get any sort of commission, it's just an incredible experience that I highly recommend!
