Cuban Cigar Taster Gives Advice in Habanosommelier Event
Havana, Dec 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuban cigar taster Juan Jose Lopez advised today a team of professionals to participate in the international competition Habanosommelier, scheduled to be held here in February, 2013 as part of the 15th Habano Festival.
Summoned for several years, Habanosommelier tests theoretical and practical knowledge about the union of habanos, foods and drinks, always under a cloak of elegance typical of luxury restaurants and hotels worldwide.
The pre-competition meetings were held this time at La Casa del Habano´s halls of the Melia Habana Libre Tryp Hotel.
They included talks with experts such as Lopez, who works at the Cuban Cigar Research Institute, and is widely known for his expertise as a taster.
During the conference Lopez addressed issues such as habano´s history, but above all elements of its culture, types, brands, and the endless ritual crowning its production.
