Gables Cigars Shop

Gift Suggestions

El Mago, which translates to ‘The Wizard’, was inspired by a couple who created magic from the little opportunity that life first offered them – my grandparents, Maria and Gonzalo Torre. The first two letters from each of their names is what brought the name Mago to life. My grandparents, whom I called Babi and Pepe, died together on June 24, 2021, in Miami, FL, when their building, The Champlain Towers, suddenly collapsed in the middle of the night. It is my honor to keep their legacy alive and share their story through a tradition that was passed down from one generation to the next.
