In episode 6 of the Cigar Sense Podcast, we interview Nestor Andres Plasencia on what it means for premium cigars to be recognized as intangible cultural heritage.

It’s a concern for all fine cigar lovers: premium cigars may disappear from the earth. In addition to being active in grassroots movements for our cigar rights, what can be done to protect our fine cigars?

What could be the impact on the premium cigar industry if our handcrafted agricultural products were recognized globally as an intangible cultural heritage to be protected?

Would that lead to a more clear definition and protected status for premium cigars, through the voice of the wealth of knowledge and skills that are transmitted from one generation to the other?

And would the social and economic value of this transmission of knowledge be more relevant to politicians?

Franca asks Nestor Andres Plasencia, Vice President of Plasencia Cigars, what his perspective is. Here is the link to an article that gives you more background information on the topic.
