He continued, “Prior to the Embargo, far more cigars were rolled with Cuban tobacco in Tampa than in Cuba because Tampa was home to the world’s best cigar factories. Authorizing the importation of raw tobacco grown in Cuba would allow us to support independent Cuban entrepreneurs and to prove, once again, that we can roll better cigars with Cuban tobacco than Cuba can.”

J.C. Newman’s final bale of Cuban tobacco, which was the last bale of pre-embargo Cuban tobacco in the U.S., continues to age in the basement of J.C. Newman’s historic El Reloj cigar factory in Ybor City, Tampa, Florida.
