Ep. 0009: Remembering Gilberto Oliva, Sr.

You might never have heard much about Gilberto Oliva, Sr., but the Oliva Cigars patriarch, who died in December 2017, was as consequential in the story of cigars — especially Nicaraguan cigars — as any of his peers.

In this special episode of the podcast, you'll hear from some of the people who knew Gilberto best, like his son José Oliva, Jorge Padrón (Padrón Cigars), Ernesto Pérez Carrillo (EPC Cigars), Carlito Fuente (Arturo Fuente Cigars), Nestor Plasencia (Plasencia Cigars) and Erik Calviño (Cigar Snob Magazine).
