Rumours from Havana: Romeo Grand Churchill is currently being rolled at El Laguito. 


Recommended Posts

I have a nice box of MUO Monte 4 that I believe you said were from El Laguito. Very consistent and nicely rolled.....so far.

They're from the 2018 festival. 450 humidors of 100. If a single roller is doing 75 per day, for a total of 4500 cigars... well... they have a full-time job for the next two years on this one.

The press release at the time had them at a slightly more palatable 56 x 190.

Would Winston dig the 58 RG?  That’s huge man!  I ate my words big time with the Mag 56 though.  With any luck I won’t get to try these and be tempted!

Maybe so, nice story and nickname.

But I have seen these being rolled and stored at another factory only and never heard of them being anywhere near El Laguito.

Great cigar and a dream to smoke.

Rob,

Just checking with "Deep Throat" at EL myself - will confirm as I get the facts on the story :whisper:

Deep Throat confirms your story @Elpresidente

Gran Churchill was transferred to El Laguito for rolling like a month ago.

And I would think that for this Vitola, like for similar exclusive ones like the Roques etc., they would use Cat 9 rollers like "Melon"...

With a name like Melon you know he's got to be bald. Or he has a huge gut.  He rolls them on his stomach. ?

Or maybe he looks like Rodney Dangerfield.

He rolls them on his stomach.

I remember an anecdote:
- Waiter! Why do I have hair in the cutlet.
"You see, sir, we have the best cook in town, but he's one-armed-he makes cutlets on his chest, and his chest is hairy...
Wild laughter of the client is distributed:
- I can't even imagine what is he using for filling with mincmeat inside the pepper!

Rob...the ones that I have are 7 1/2 X 56, I don't think they are anywhere close to a 58RG. John

He may have had a slip of the thumb.

That's why it's called "Rumours" :rotfl:

The single roller is nicknamed Melon and he is knocking out 75-80 per day.
