The Procigar Festival is honestly one of my favorite weeks of the year. It’s five days of smoking the best cigars the Dominican Republic has to offer, hanging out with industry leaders, and going behind the scenes of all of my favorite cigar companies. It is truly special, and I highly recommend joining us next year.

We know we already shared a bunch of photos but they were unedited so we wanted to provide a cleaner overview. If you want to see more, we have recaps of days one, two, three, four, and five.
