TRN ENTERTAINMENT host RUSTY HUMPHRIES has created his own designer cigar for limited release. "EL PRESIDENTE," dedicated to GEORGE WASHINGTON, is being released in a linited quantity of 300 boxes, 5,400 cigars in total. HUMPHRIES workes with DON LINO creator NESTOR MIRANDA and master blender JOSE "PEPIN" GARCIA on the cigar.
“If you go to cigar shops, guys are usually there talking politics all the time, and they’re usually conservative. So I thought, ‘What a great product that would go with talk radio,’” said HUMPHRIES, who said that Sen. MARCO RUBIO (R-FL) tried the cigar and “pronounced it Bueno.”
“The idea was that it was something regal,” added HUMPRHIES. “Something you would give to a president. Something that would make you feel special. It’s not made to be an everyday smoke. There’s not that many of ‘em. I only wanted to do a limited amount. I wanted to honor a president each time. When they’re gone, they’re gone. So each cigar is a collector’s item in its own right.”
