Day 2: General Cigar

General Cigars is part of a large international corporation that produces many well-known brands including Macanudo and Romeo & Julietta.  The number of workers and the amount of tobacco was astonishing.  The production was similar – but just ramped up in numbers.  Very impressive.  Again, lunch was served and it was great.
