FdH 2014 – Special Humidors In Havana

15 Mar


nfc capHere is a selection of special humidors I found in different Casas del Habano in Havana before the start of the XVI Festival del Habano festivities.

Following last year’s releases of special humidors celebrating musicians Chucho Valdes and Compay Segundo, this year the humidors celebrated Alicia Alonso, founder and director of the Cuban National Ballet and Leo Brouwer, the famous guitar musician & composer.

Additional humidors were manufactured for Che and a typical Cuban Bohio or farmhouse was made for Robaina.

Additionally, I found some smaller humidors and jars as well as other more colourful and cubistic humidors.

More reports featuring humidors will follow as I had the pleasure once again to visit humidor artist Jose Ernesto Aguilera just days before he completed his artistic pieces for the Gala dinner auction at the closure of the FdH.

Also, he manufactured a wonderful piece that was auctioned at an event held at the Habana Libre – more details will follow.

    Great pictures, Nino.

    I usually find these humis kitsch but this time they seem to be a little more me.
