Cuban Cigar of the Week - H. Upmann Robusto Anejados
April 2020

Cuban Cigar of the Week - H. Upmann Robusto Anejados

Our Cuban Cigar of the Week is the H. Upmann Robusto Anejados. This Robusto cigar has a ring gauge of 50, a length of 4 7/8 inches and is light to medium in strength giving you a smoke time of about 45 minutes.

H. Upmann's blend is composed exclusively of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone. Gold medals in no less than eleven international exhibitions during the 19th Century can be found on the brand's labelled boxes. Like its predecessors, the cigars have been box aged for between 5 to 8 years in the perfect climatic conditions of Cuba. This will afford the cigars a mellow, more refined taste as the blend of the filler leaves meld together over time realising their full potential.

New World Cigar of the Week - Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico
April 2020

New World Cigar of the Week - Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico Dirty Rat

Our New World Cigar of the Week is the Drew Estate Liga Privada Unico Dirty Rat. This cigar has a ring gauge of 44, a length of 5 inches and is full in strength.

In the ongoing creation of the Liga Privada line, hundreds of different, distinct blends and vitolas are crafted in our endless search for the perfect smoke. Most samples are dismissed with only a rare, select few being deemed worthy, but regretfully due to tobacco limitations, costs, and construction limitations, most of these blends cannot be made into their own stand-alone line.

However, they are so perfect in flavour and aroma, Drew Estate continued to selfishly make them for themselves to smoke. This was not their desire; they wanted the Liga Privada connoisseur to enjoy the very same cigars that are smoked regardless of any reason.

With this in mind, Drew Estate created the Liga Privada Unico Serie – a home for these unique ones. All of the cigars within this series are not only different in size and blend, but they are extra special, extremely limited and exceptionally delicious.

April 2020

Whisky of the Week - Dalmore 15 Year Old

Our whisky of the week commencing 06/04/2020 is the Dalmore 15 Year Old. The dalmore 15 is smooth, rich and well rounded: the epitome of The Dalmore house style - A robust, yet elegant spirit. Launched in 2007, the 15 Year Old is one of the most popular expressions in the core Dalmore range.

You will get aromas of delicious toffee, medium sherry and ripe oranges with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and orange marmalade. and flavours of Mandarin, vanilla, ginger and crushed apples. Sherry and Christmas spices. Leaving you with a relatively long finish, nutty with hints of vanilla, yet more Christmas spices and oak.

This delicate and approachable vintage is initially matured for 12 years in American white oak ex-bourbon casks. The character is then achieved by splitting the whisky equally between three different sherry woods: Amoroso, Apostoles and Matusalem oloroso for a further three years. The spirit is finally married together in an upstanding sherry butt, allowing the flavours to infuse.

The Dalmore 15 has won gold Medal International Whisky Competition 2010 and Double Gold Medal San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2009.

Whisky of the Week - Rock Oyster

Our whisky of the week commencing 09/03/2020 is Rock Oyster

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."

You will get aromas of wave soaked rocks and a salty oceanic, fresh influence. A hint of peat smoke, and an enticing sweetness. And an initially subtle palate that carries soft and rather sweet peat paralleled with smoke, honey, damp ash and develops with liquorice and late pepper.

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.
