04/17 - Cuban tobacco legend died - RIP Don Alejandro Robaina

The legendary Cuban tobacco legend Don Alejandro Robaina (20.03.1919 - 17.04.2010) died in the age of 91 on his farm in Cuba.

For many cigar smokers this will be a very sad day. He was the only living person who had a brand with his own name.

"He once told me he was a millionaire because he had a million friends all over the world. He had a big heart and he treated everyone the same," said a friend of the family.
