Micky Pegg was first introduced to cigars in the Spring of 1989 while playing college not and interning on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Back in the day, if the Senator you worked for liked you and you did a good job, he would send you down to the local tobacconist for cigars. When you returned you got to light up with the leadership staff. It was at that point, Micky was hooked. He would begin working for the tobacconist where he would spend all his money on cigars. So much so that his first paycheck was for $4.52.
After a sting with Davidoff handling the Mid-Atlantic sales he would venture over to CAO where he would become the national sales manager for CAO. Eventually the company sold to General Cigar and Micky exited the cigar industry where he would work selling mutual funds and retirement plans. He missed the cigar industry and wanted back in.
Eventually he listened after his wife Kimmie, Crowned Heads founder and former CAO marketing guru Jon Huber and countless others convinced him to follow his dreams.
“Dedicación is for every meaningful person in my life,” said Pegg. “From those working in the fincas to the families they support and for the families in the States that support those guys that are on the road four or five days a week. And it’s for my mentors along the way like David Berkebile, Walter Gorski, George Brightman and, of course, Cano Ozgener (the late founder of CAO).”
You will find the Dedicacion delivers a full-flavored, medium to full-bodied smoke with notes of chocolate, coffee, pepper and spice with a beautiful, naturally sweet caramel finish.
The Commandant is offered in box-pressed form and the Huge is offered round.
