Our editor, Brian, recently traveled to the Dominican Republic for the Procigar Festival. He walked the tobacco fields and factories of such high-profile manufacturers as Davidoff, La Aurora, General Cigar, Tabacalera de Garcia, and many more. He ventured into the jungle for an adventure or two, attended many a dinner party, and smoked his fair share of cigars. Here are some photos and video from his experience.
