Casa Fuego by Jesus Fuego

Up on the chopping block for the most recent First Impressions video is a cigar that I acquired at Cigarfest 2009. The day before the big event, Jerry and I managed to get behind the curtain and see the expo center floor while manufacturers were setting up.

As we were standing there talking with Sam Leccia, I noted that Jesus Fuego had a booth setup across from him. I was kind of surprised to see a boutique guy at Cigarfest and was very curious as to what he would be giving away to the masses the following day.

My curiosity was satisfied the following day as Jerry and I spoke with Jesus and were handed a Casa Fuego. Several weeks later, here I am lighting it up for the very first time to see how it compares to his premium lines.

What are your thoughts on a relatively
small manufacturer producing a cigar
for a large retailer such as Cigars International?
