Between now and the Chattanooga Tweet-Up, we will be featuring "spotlight" posts on each of the sponsors of the event. The order was chosen randomly.
George Rodriguez started the Rodrigo Cigar company after a fate-filled trip to the Dominican Republic. With no real plan or contacts, he boarded a plane to Santiago in a “seek and ye shall find” fashion, as he writes on the company’s website. He found what he needed and for that we can be thankful as he has now released three blends to a curious cigar connoisseurs: Habano Clasico, Boutique Blend, and La Fortaleza.
It was also on a whim that he told one of his reps to contact me several months ago to see about coming to the Tweetup. He just wanted to be there around other cigar smokers and if that meant buying a ticket, he would do so. Instead he is sponsoring our event and providing cigars for our multi-packs. I personally have had only the original Habano Clasico blend, but it was fantastic, so I am very eager to try some of the others. Stay tuned for those reviews and check out this one of the original:
