  1. Mr. Herrera,
    What, if any, advice can you give when it comes to fighting existing smoking bans? I live in Wisconsin and the ban here prevents any new cigar establishments from opening unless it was an establishment that was grandfathered in when the ban was passed into law.

    Thank you for your time,

    Mike Cmeyla


  2. Mike:

    Contact Cigar Rights of America. Speak to Glynn Loope or Brian Berman. I will also forward your inquiry to them. I’m not sure how familiar you are with the CRA, but they really are on top of the state by state legislation.

    Jokingly …. leave Wisconsin. Miami is nice. All the best -FH


  3. Hello,
    I work at La Flor Dominicana and I am working on compiling a list of cigar blogs like yours, and I would like to include some contact information on that list. If you could provide me with an email address and any other contact information available, that would be very helpful.
    Thank you,
    Sofia de Goytisolo


  4. Hi Mr Herrrera,

    We are interested in purchasing advertising on your site. We sell quality tobacco products at discount rates, so many of your readers might be interested in seeing our ads. Let us know if you are open to this.

    Kind Regards,

  5. Hello! My name is Bryan and I’m fairly new to the Cigar world. I’m attempting to startup a new “large” cigar import business that would introduce a new brand of Dominican cigars to the United States. I have my TTB importers license, but I’m overwhelmed by the new FDA requirements. We have about 10 cigars that I need to get FDA marketing approval for, labeling approval for, etc. Is there someone who I could contact/work with to help me through the process to write and submit all the necessary documentation? Perhaps a law firm or other industry specialist? Thanks for any help you can provide!!!
