The first time I smoked a Felix Assouline cigar I was so taken aback that I immediately contacted him and asked "why have I never heard of you". In this business it's hard to keep a good cigar a secret and to my surprise Felix had a good answer to the question.
His brand of cigars was primarily featured in France in association with a luxury line of cigar accessories. Felix's operation is respected because of its vertical integration in that all of the essential aspects of production are controlled in house. Most cigar makers outsource various aspects of the operation so that they can focus on other areas while also controlling cost. That's what separates Felix from the competition. Meticulous control over the production of his passion.
I will be featuring a number of various pairings with Felix's line that will be published via PuroMaduro.com and the PuroMaduroChannel on YouTube. The first will be published Friday morning 8/12 at 9am.
