This week The Cigar Authority welcomes to the show Steve Zengel from Los Caidos Cigars. Los Caidos is Spanish for The Fallen and it is made at the Aganorsa factory in Nicragua. The cigar comes as a red band for the Fire Department, and a blue band for the Police Department with the blend being the same for both. For each cigar sold, $1 is donated by Los Caidos to family members of fallen police and firefighters. We will discuss this phenomenonal project with the mastermind behind it.
