Is there a Cigar Hall Of Fame?

Probably not, but if there was one who would be in it? The obvious choices are Mark Twain, Sir Winston Churchill, Ernest Hemmingway, U.S. Grant, who else would belong?

    George Burns? JFK? I don't know, probably a bunch of people that I can't even think of.

    Frank Llaneza founder of the Villazon factory and Big cheese at the NATSA factory and the brains and buds behind many of the old time brands may he rest in peace

    Sigmund Freud. Even if I think his theories on psychology and his ahem...accomplishments as a doctor are baloney, he did change the realm of psychology as we know it. That and he smoked on average of 18 to 20 cigars a day.

    AJ Fernandez deserves a spot, he's only in his early 30s and is one of the best blenders out there..

    Agreed, he is like Pete Rose, nobody does it better! On the flip side I disagree about Fidel, he has done nothing but drag down a once proud Cuban tobacco industry to commie standards

    Shame on me for not putting him first. He is like the Ambassador of Stick!

    I think we missed what should be an obvious pick, Avelino Lara, creator of perhaps the most famous cigar brand in Cohiba...not to mention his post-embargo creation of some pretty good cigars in the Bahama Graycliffs.

    Jackie Chan. Apparently, he has his own special blend imported every month from Gurkha. I still have no idea what blend this is.
