Meet the Hottest Cigar Roller Ever

ldwoman

A gorgeous, sexy woman who can roll a mean cigar—is this your dream girl?

By day, Ana Pérez is a social worker in Morristown, NJ, but she supplements her income with a nighttime gig rolling cigars at parties. The 26-year-old Pérez is one of eight women who are employed by Miami-based Cigar Dolls, which provides attractive, knowledgeable women who can work magic with tobacco leaves.

Pérez came by her ability honestly, since she was brought here from Cuba as a child and her grandfather was a cigar roller in Havana. She learned the craft from her father while still very young, and recalled to the New York Times, “I remember my uncles sitting around at Sunday dinner with messy cigars hanging out of their mouths. It was kind of a normal, very mundane way of life.”

Pérez knows her stuff, and gave some tips while rolling at a corporate event in Manhattan. “These leaves are very temperamental, just like women. When I roll Connecticut leaves into cigars, it makes for a milder blend. At a party like this, I’d rather roll milder cigars than stronger ones using something like ligero leaves, which are darker and result in more of a bold blend. It’s the same thing as making chocolate: the darker it is, the stronger or bolder it is going to be.”

How do cigar lovers react to seeing a lovely lady rolling their smokes? Electrician Joe Genovese told the Times, “I have never seen a woman rolling cigars at an event like this. Usually, it’s an older, distinguished-looking man rolling my cigar, so this is a pleasant surprise, and I must say, her cigar has a very good draw to it.”

So does Pérez have higher aspirations in the cigar business? She dropped this hint:  “I’ve tried to learn more about cigar blending secrets, but I’ve been told that if I learn too much, I might be able to take over the company.”
