“I’m the happiest man in the world” are the first words from Bill Paley as he takes a moment to address the crowd of 200 guests invited to the La Palina Cigars launch event in Washington DC. Luckily enough, I was one of those 200 guests.
Video runs about 8 minutes as Bill (I think we’re on a first name basis these days right Bill?) talks about his passion for cigars, tobacco, his grandfather Sam and in general the journey of La Palina Cigars.
Please excuse the following:
– The jittery camera in the beginning…I took full advantage of the open bar and had a handful of tequila tonics.
– 7-10 seconds where there is no sound…I was covering up the microphone on my iPhone.
– Anything else I didn’t mention…tequila is such a beautiful substance.
