The Old Fashioned Chico cigars pay homage to a seasoned General Cigar employee, Chico Hernandez. In Spanish, Chico translates to mean "little". Chico earned the nickname based on his small figure, however, he left a huge legacy, not only at the company but with everyone who dealt with him. Chico was a bonafide example of the phrase "Good things come in small packages", as are the Old Fashioned Chicos cigars.
