Thompson Cigar Trip to Plasencia Cigar Factory

Al Remp recently accompanied Thompson Cigar Company executives to the Plasencia Cigar Factory in Danli, Honduras. There, they met with Nestor Plasencia and toured his facilities.

Here you see Al sniffing cigar wrappers in the final phase of the fermentation process to discern its readiness.

In this photo, you see workers in the Plasencia factory sorting premium wrappers.

Finally, in this photo, you see a selection of wrappers sorted by color. Each stack represents a different brand of cigars from the Plasencia factory.

    In the last photo, I would say they're sorted by size, not color.

    Al Remp admits that Mr. Maduro is right. At first glance, Al identified the photo as sorted by color, not size. We did not publish the picture sorted by color. The two photos do look similar though.

    Thanks for paying attention!

    Size does count.
