Gary Korb takes one more look at the Holidays with his list of top shelf cigars adorned with fancy white & gold bands. Whether it’s a last minute gift idea or a humidor-worthy primo to ring-in the New Year, you’ll find 12 of them all dressed-up and ready to smoke.

The latest, according to our source is, Nestor Miranda and Rene Castaneda of Miami Cigar & Co., and Guillermo Leon of Tabacalera La Aurora and The Leon Group, will be traveling to EstelÃ, Nicaragua next week to spend a couple of days visiting with Jaime and Pepin Garcia.
Based on that information, there’s no reason to believe the “visit” will be anything more than a typical business trip; inspecting the tobacco fields, visiting the factory, sampling cigars over cafecito – yadda, yadda, yadda.
However, none of the three travelers has discussed or even acknowledged the trip or its purpose.
