#RIP Maria Sierra - Maria was a cigar icon and the architect and sole roller of The Goldie, the crown jewel of La Palina.
She began her career in Cuba in 1967 and is regarded as one of the first women trained to roll cigars in Cuba, her training coming from Avelino Lara, who is often credited with creating the Cohiba blend, and Eduardo Rivera Irizarri, who was Fidel Castro’s personal cigar roller. She is considered to be a category nine roller, which means she can roll any cigar in the Habanos S.A. portfolio.
A true Grand Master.
