The last Made By Hand video premiered in earlier this year, in March to be exact. After a semi-long hiatus, the crew is back with their episode entitled The Cigar Shop. Aroma of the hand rolled cigars almost seeps through the screen, as Jesus Martinez explains how the family owned cigar store Martinez Cigars came to existence. His father Don Antonio Martinez immigrated to New York City from Dominican Republic in the mid 70s and opened the store selling hand rolled cigars. Cigar rolling is an art in itself, and it is as pleasurable to watch the veteran craftsman roll cigars as it is to smoke freshly rolled cigars.
