Interview with Hal Rubin

As I mentioned in yesterdays El Cobre Short Ashes Review, I had plans to speak with Hal Rubin of Empire Cigars in regards to his house blend. The interview ran about 15 minutes overall and has some interesting information within it. I had some second thoughts about incorporating the entire interview into my upcoming review as it would make the review roughly 45 mins long. Rather than incorporate all of it, I’m going to take some key points and pull them in.

So before you see bits and pieces of the interview in my review, I wanted to give you the opportunity to see it all beforehand. On the day of the interview I had a quick trip to Radio Shack to make. As it turns out I picked up the wrong cable which rendered my Mini Mixer useless. As a result I simply imported Hal through my laptop and recorded the whole thing on my camcorder (my apologies for the poor quality). Both Audio and video are available below, you wont be missing much if you go with the audio this time around.
