Hugo Cassar is a legend in the cigar business. He started one of the world’s most successful tobacco companies by selling clove cigarettes in the United States. During the cigar boom of the 1990’s, he travelled to Nicaragua to meet Nestor Plasencia, marking the start of Hugo’s foray into premium cigars. Today, Hugo owns Phillips & King which includes subsidiaries such as Ventura Cigars.
