This week Drew and Joe, interview Mike Bellody, Founder of MLB Cigar Ventures. Mike believes the premium, hand-rolled cigar industry is one of the very few remaining industries that has stayed true to the original time-tested techniques used since the first cigar was rolled almost 300 years ago. The history, craftsmanship and quality associated with making truly great cigars remain largely unchanged through generations. The cigar lifestyle is filled with these traditions. His cigars will always pay homage to this deeply entrenched tradition and history. Quality will NEVER be in question when you smoke a cigar made under his supervision his cigars will always be "Developed by Legends" - http://www.mlbcigarventures.com/
