Following the leads

If you've been following this blog, then you know that Cigar Advisor has been following a potential major cigar industry announcement, which may or may not concern a possible merger between Miami Cigar Co. and My Father Cigars, Inc.

The latest, according to our source is, Nestor Miranda and Rene Castaneda of Miami Cigar & Co., and Guillermo Leon of Tabacalera La Aurora and The Leon Group, will be traveling to EstelĂ­, Nicaragua next week to spend a couple of days visiting with Jaime and Pepin Garcia.

Based on that information, there's no reason to believe the "visit" will be anything more than a typical business trip; inspecting the tobacco fields, visiting the factory, sampling cigars over cafecito - yadda, yadda, yadda.

However, none of the three travelers has discussed or even acknowledged the trip or its purpose.
