Hullinger's Musings

'A little dude from Spain' could have made Atlanta a huge cigar city

The next time you're winding Ponce de Leon in Midtown, consider this latest Musing from Jeff Hullinger: Angel LaMadrid Cuesta was born in Asturias, Spain in 1858. He came to Atlanta with a dream and some pocket money. His business concept? Rolling premium cigars at a small factory off Ponce. And it wasn't long before he was rolling in American dollars. (Long ashes, friends.)
