Smokey greetings from surprisingly sunny and mild London, so much so that the roof has been off the C7GAR car for most of the week. Hopefully the start of some good weather car herfing
It’s been a busy week with a very entertaining Jack Whitehall evening at Wembley Arena last Sunday and a superb Valentine’s day of herfing that started with a wet shave at Trumper in Curzon street and continued with a herf at Turmeaus Mayfair with some of my new hugely popular Orchant Selection Cigar Malt and Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchills (well it was Valentines and that would be the suitably romantic brand!)
Pre-dinner drinks (or prinks as my daughter would say!) were at The Garden Room at The Lanesborough (Glengoyne 21) and Montecristo 80th Anniversary cigars followed by dinner at Cecconis I love this restaurant and how I miss the days when we used to smoke cigars after dinner there.
To finish the night we had some plate smashing fun at The Elysee I hadn’t been there for many years but I reckon it’s as much fun as it always was.

There’s a splendid variety of aged and rare smokes and should be a few bargains to be won I reckon. Bidding is fun and easy and works a bit like eBay. Think of it as cBay!
Supply of Havanas has improved marginally with the odd boxes of Montecristo 80th and Cohiba BHK’s showing up now and again particularly at our La Casa del Habano. I’m down to my last few boxes of Cohiba Robusto Supremo so if you haven’t stashed them in your humidor by now …that boat is about to sail! The next best thing IMHO are the Trinidad Topes but they seem to be in short supply and we can’t keep them from flying off the shelves.
I’m heading up North to Turmeaus – Liverpool on Monday / Tuesday and looking forward to another great tasting event. Our tasting events are always sold out fast! Get booked up here to one of our events for a fun and informative evening of cigar sampling and whisky/rum tastings.
Have a smokey weekend
