Jorge Armenteros, Certified Master Tobacconist, Owner of A Little Taste of Cuba Cigar Parlor, and President and Founder of Tobacconist University, joins us via Skype in a rare podcast appearance from TU’s new home base in southwestern Florida.
We will be talking about Jorge’s extensive experience as a B&M retailer, how that grew into a passion to help train and educate other retailers, and the birth of Tobacconist University, now a national organization and the official educational curriculum of the PCA.
Pastor Padron trained as a CRT (Certified Retail Tobacconist) under Jorge at his shop in Princeton NJ from 2000-2002. In fact, it was Jorge who gave him that moniker! To cap what is already sure to be a great night, while we hear what Jorge has been up to and what his plans are for TU, we will be smoking the Padron 1964 Anniversary Series Presidente Maduro and Gawith Hoggarth’s Kendal Kentucky! Can it get any better? We think not! And that is not just blowing smoke!
