Cuba - Tobacco

          Pepe Lluis also showed me his tobacco house where the leaves are suspended. He explained me that the tobacco season is between November and February. A plant can hold up to 25 leaves. After the harvest, they spray the leaves with a mix of honey, water and rum to give it a unique flavor. They then dry for forty-five days before being ready to be rolled into cigars! Ninety percent is sold to the government, and the rest is his. He also showed me how he rolls them to create the cigar and offered me to smoke one.
