Meet Manuel Inoa: Master blenders are not born; they are made. That’s what Manuel Inoa says of the title that most people in the cigar industry refer to him as. As La Aurora’s master blender, Inoa is the man in charge of coming up with the blends that keep the Dominican Republic’s oldest cigar factory relevant and at the top of mind for cigar smokers across the world.
The title “master blender,” however, is something earned, not awarded. It comes from years of working in the cigar business and is validated by years spent studying all areas of tobacco, from how it’s grown from seeds to how it’s harvested and combined to create a final blend. Being a master blender, Inoa explains, requires an open mind and willingness to always learn something new and explore all areas of the tobacco business.
