Introducing Havana 2010 (Makerspace’s first series)
Eleven years ago Philip Zanghi was working with a distinctive client that demanded a sophisticated series of cigars with the best tobacco he could source and transform into masterpieces at Leo Reyes’ factory (Leo is an industry veteran and one of the largest independent tobacco growers in the country. His brother Augusto Reyes is an industry icon).
The project ran successfully until an abrupt turn of events halted the venture and the last production was left stranded at the factory’s main aging room. Fast forward until today and you may find Phil constantly monitoring the evolution of this old production. This was a very special project, and he vowed to age them until the right moment came along.
We were humbled when Phil approached us and wanted us to develop something special for this production. Makerspace had been in the works for some time in an unrelated shape and form, and we hunted for the spark that fused it into a powerful mass of energy that would materialize and evolve through fraternity.
We tried some samples and were amazed with the balance, density, and nuances in the cigars. The Havana 2010 Maduro will be dedicated to our Factory Direct efforts of August and for the first time, we’ll include 6 cigars in the selection. As usual, these will be un-banded, as we will release the branded product in unison with CigarClub later this year.
