A Lesson in Fermentation: The Rocky Patel Trip

While in Honduras for the Rocky Patel trip, Nimish Desai presented us with many great lessons in the Tobacco process. In this video, you can gain an understanding of the fermentation process.

If you ever make it to a factory and experience the process first hand… wow is that ever an experience. You may find an even stronger appreciation for your cigars when you experience all that they go through and all the people involved.

Fortunately for you in this case the smell experienced cannot be shared from video or photos. But I think you’ll get an idea of what it was like from this video. Enjoy.

    WOW. That had to be intense. It is an amazing process, every bit the equal of fine wine making or craft beer brewing.
    Thanks for the video!
