Jesus Fuego Interview

Submitted by Rob on January 6, 2010 – 5:00 am4 Comments

Jesus Fuego, president of Tabacos S.A., sits down with puffingcigars.com at Tinderbox in Mesa, Arizona.

The Fuego family has been in the business of growing, blending, and rolling cigars for five generations (1876 to be exact). Odds are you have had the privilege of smoking some of the J. Fuego blends long before he started producing cigars under his name. He has worked with Rocky Patel supervising production in various factories and has helped collaborate on some of Rocky’s most notable cigars, such as the Olde World Reserve.

This self-proclaimed “Cuban Redneck” launched his own line in December of 2006 so that he could finally have full creative control on the cigars he was blending. Initially launching the Natural and Gran Reserva lines, Mr.Fuego has expanded with 777, the limited edition Origen and the HC Series for XIKAR (just to name a few). The value he strives to produce for  his consumers, or “Rockstars” as he puts it, makes J. Fuego and his family a great edition to the cigar community; you can expect to see wonderful things for a long time to come.

    Thanks for posting this I really enjoy his cigars. I love his passion for them

  • [...] not familiar with Jesus (and even if you are), this is a very interesting interview. Good job Rob! Listen to the interview… If you enjoyed this article, consider subscribing to the site updates, either in your RSS reader [...]

    Jesus is one of the best cigar blenders around today. His cuban heritage comes through in all of his smokes.

  • Paul Mularz says:

    Good interview Rob. This J Fuego Gran Reserva Corojo no 1 has a very dense ash ( this is good in my opinion), yet has an easy draw. Jesus is a great ambassador not only for his cigars, but for cigar afficiandos in general. Thanks for getting this interview, and thanks Jesus for sitting down and spending some time with Rob
