Right place right time!

I stopped by the B&M today to grab some stuff they had put aside for me. After spending 1/2 hr looking around at some new stuff I went upstairs into the lounge to enjoy a smoke I'd been waiting for for about a week. Nestor Miranda was killing a few hrs before an event he had down the street.
I'd met him awhile back when he was doing an event for his birthday release. He's so down to earth, and can talk forever! About 45 min. Into our conversation he says here I've got a cigar for you ! And hands me this

I've gotta look into it more however it's a limited release tribute cigar to someone in the industry that passed away! I was great full for the gift however I was much more great full to be able to have a great conversation with a great botl. Such a true gentlemen !
if you guys ever get a chance to attend a Miami cigar event that he's at take the time and go! I can't wait till he's back in July. They're doing a tasting/education event

    That's a great looking stick and the band really goes with the color of the wrapper.

    I like Nestor's work. Sometimes hard to find around here.

    Cool you got to meet him. Is that a Fernando Leon? Looks like one, never heard reviews but I know a lot like the guillermo leons.. They're made by la aurora I believe.
