El Rey del Mundo La Reina UK Regional Edition 2018!
July 2019

Introducing the latest Regional Edition Habanos cigar exclusive to the UK and limited to just 3,500 boxes of 24. The El Rey del Mundo La Reina (“The King of the World The Queen”) UK Regional Edition 2018 was finally released on the 4th of July 2019. This is the second UK Regional for El Rey del Mundo and follows Choix de L’Epoque which was released in 2009.

The cigars measure 7 1/2” (192mm) x 38 ring gauge and are presented in SBN boxes of 24. Each cigar is finished with a signature pigtail, synonymous with the Laguito No. 1 vitola and all have been rolled at the world famous El Laguito factory in Havana, the spiritual home for this iconic size.

The size was created by Eduardo Rivera and the first to be offered to President Fidel Castro in 1963, almost two decades before it was commercially launched and made available as the Cohiba Lanceros in 1982.

Since 2005, the companies that normally distribute Habano cigars in different territories around the world have been invited by Habanos SA to bid for the chance to create their own sizes in less well known Habanos brands. These are then made in limited quantities for sale only in their own markets. These cigars are known as Regional Editions.

Rock Oyster Launch!
May 2019

Don't miss out on this amazing offer. Rock Oyster at a super low price, and if you buy a bottle now you get a FREE 5cl bottle of Rock Oyster to go with it.

Rock Oyster is Douglas Laing's blended malt based on whiskies from the Islands, specifically Jura, Islay, Arran and Orkney.

Bottled at 46.8% alcohol strength and traditionally without colouring or chill-filtration, this Small Batch bottling has a truly maritime and oceanic character of sea-salt, sweet peat, smoke, honey and pepper.

Containing the finest Malt Whiskies from Scotland’s Whisky islands, including those distilled on Islay, Arran, Orkney and Jura, it’s no wonder Master Blender Fred Laing says “If I could select just one dram to transport the Whisky enthusiast to the Islands of Scotland, it would be this Rock Oyster."

Calums trip to the Dominican Republic
February 2019

At the start of February, Calum was very fortunate to be picked to go on the “Davidoff – Viaje al Origen” trip to the Dominican Republic, to experience the world of Davidoff cigars first hand. So at the start of February, 22 members of the cigar trade from all across Europe all met in a Santa Domingo hotel, for an unforgettable week.

Our first day was spent readjusting after the long flights, with a guided tour of Santa Domingo, before travelling north into the heart of the Dominican Republic, where the main Davidoff Factories and farms are located. We settled down for the night, before jumping on a coach to head out to our first main stop on the journey of Davidoff Cigars: The farm.

As soon as we pulled up, we knew we were in for something special; tobacco plants that were taller than me (not hard when I stand at about 5’8”, admittedly, but it was still impressive) surrounded us completely....
