We talked with “Ms. Master Cigar Sommelier”, the Countess of Sperlinga, about learning how to pair gourmet products and about the value of education. Cigar smoking can remain a hobby and still offer you much more pleasure if you decide to learn alongside professionals, the sommeliers who learn to advance in their career. The discussion also showcases a great example of a woman in the cigar world who is not discriminated, but rather respectful and respected.
