Nestor Miranda cigars are manufactured by Miami Cigar. They are a distributor that has a focus of serving the aficionado. The company began in 1989. The company started in a garage. Of course, now it is a company that is recognized worldwide. They are proud to also represent other great smokes. These are products of the La Aurora Factory in the Dominican Republic. They also own other brands aside from Nestor Miranda cigars. Some of the other brands include Tatiana, Don Lino, and Habanitos.
The founder of Nestor Miranda cigars also has the same name as the company. He came to the United States when he was sixteen years old as an immigrant from Cuba. At the time that he started Miami Cigar, he was in the liquor business. Back in Cuba, his family was not involved in the tobacco business at all. They owned a bakery. He stated that his only connection to tobacco was his own grandfather’s love of the smokes.
In 1990, he bought the La Aurora Factory that had previously only produced about ten thousand smokes. A few years later, his production was up to 12 million a year. This is quite a huge rise in a very short time for a man that had no previous experience or generational involvement in the tobacco industry. His drive is what kept him going and made him such a success. After all of this success, he finally decided that there should be a Nestor Miranda cigars line which would carry his name.
They are offered in sizes like 4 1/2 x 50, 5 1/2 x 54, 6 x 60. Those are rather huge offerings. They also went on to offer Lanceros. Cuba has these, and they are considered very exquisite. While these are difficult to make because they have a 40 gauge ring size, they also were extremely popular.
The founder of Nestor Miranda cigars knows that there is a lot of competition out there, and it is very good competition especially among the boutique companies. He spends a lot of time in shops and connecting with customers. He also spends a lot of time traveling to the various countries where his tobacco is being grown in an effort to stay involved as well as informed about all of the changes and challenges that might occur.
He also likes to give his offerings to panels to try, and afterward he asks them for their feedback. He says that he knows that while he may or may not like the product, he wants the public to like it. So, he doesn’t choose to produce a line right away. He takes the input and feedback and makes changes if they are necessary, and this too has lent itself to his success as a businessman.
While he may not come from a family that is steeped in the Cuban tobacco tradition, he has spent the last twenty plus years learning and growing a company as well as growing as a businessman and being a success for what he hopes is another twenty years more.
