Macanudo Launch Event!
April 2016
Mitchell, Guy and Michelle at the Macanudo Inspirado UK Launch Party
We are now the exclusive Distributor of STG handmade products in the UK which includes the wonderful cigar ranges Macanudo, Torano and Don Tomas. To celebrate the launch of the Macanudo Inspirado in the UK we held a launch event at the delightful Sahakian cigar shop at The Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge on Monday the 11th of April. (The Gallery from the event is at the end of this article)

It was another sell out event to add to the long list! We squeezed as many guests as we could in to the Sahakian lounge as we all sat down to enjoy the Inspirado cigars paired up with some delicious whisky (the food provided by the Bulgari Hotel was superb as ever).

"You will be inspired while enjoying Macanudo Inspirado." - Well this was definitely true; the construction is superb and gives it a solid, beautiful ash. The blend, which was worked on for over a year, is rich and complex with hints of sweetness all the way through, and being only medium to full in strength it really is one you can enjoy throughout the day.

Macanudo Goody Bag Sampler
Each of the guests that attended were treated to a beautiful Macanudo Gift Bag which included 3 cigars as well as some Macanudo and C.Gars branded goodies! You can enjoy some of the items which were included in the goody bag for yourself with the sampler here.

Macanudo cigars are a brand that have been with a few distributors and we are now very happy to have complete exclusivity with them, meaning we can make the prices even more desirable!

Torano, which we imported directly a few years ago, are a really enjoyable smoke and the prices were already highly competitive. When the company was sold that was the end of the brand for the UK, however, C.Gars are now the UK distributor and we have brought a range of value priced Torano back onto our shelves.

The other brand that we sold masses of many years ago was Don Tomas and now it’s back! Again, C.Gars are the exclusive UK distributor and prices will be exceptionally keen for these good quality, new world smokes.

Latest Anejados Cigar!
March 2016
Partagas Coronas Gorda Anejados CigarBox of 25Anejados, or Aged, is a new concept of cigars from Habanos S.A.

Each cigar from this new range has been box aged for between 5 to 8 years in the perfect humidity conditions of Cuba. This gives the cigars a more mellow, more refined taste as the blend of the leaves has melded together more over time to realise their full potential.

The first release was the Romeo Piramide which was soon followed by the Montecristo Churchill, these both proved very popular and were later followed up by the Hoyo de Monterrey Hermosos No. 4. All 3 of these were new vitolas for the brands.

We have now had the 4th release to the series, the Partagas Coronas Gorda, also a new vitola for the Partagas brand, this cigar measures 5 5/8" x 46 ring gauge.

They are now available and are smoking absolutely superbly, try one for yourself here.

Or try the Anejados cigar sampler containing all 4 of the cigars here.

Cigar Auction
December 2015
On Monday the 30th of November cigar smokers, collectors and connoisseurs from several different countries descended upon "the big smoke" to bid on an unbelievable selection of aged, rare and vintage cigars at the only vintage havana cigar auction in the world.

Our Cigar Auctions are always well attended but this time, it was absolutely jam packed! There wasn't an empty seat in the cinema room at the Bulgari Hotel, which again held host to this winter''s auction. Not satisfied with allowing guests to bid in the room, we also had a super high tech live video/audio link feeding to the Online Auction website, this meant that the action could be seen and heard as it happened, which allowed bidders from all over the world to participate from the comfort of their own homes by bidding online. During the auction we had over 300 bidders from 17 different countries doing just that which we understand was a world first international auction for vintage cigars!

There were some fierce battles going on both online and live in the room which lead to some of the lots doubling or even tripling their estimates. Pre-Embargo Davidoff and Dunhill cigars were still some of the most exciting and this year they were some of the finest quality we've ever seen. There was huge interest in the Cuban Dunhill Estupendos which sold for a possible record breaking price. The real winner though was the pre-embargo Cabinet of 250 Romeo y Julieta Invencibles which went for a whopping £30,000! Whilst the oldest cigars that went under Jonathan Humbert's hammer were from the 1940's, therefore were over 70 years old; absolutely staggering.

After the excitement of the auction, guest were invited to move up to the Edward Sahakian Cigar Lounge, also at the Bulgari Hotel, for a relaxing sampling session of delicious Cuban cigars and single malt whisky, which again was absolutely packed! Guests were greeted with a Montecristo Media Corona to ease them in, followed by an absolutely delectable Bolivar Belgravia, the final UK Regional Edition cigar to be released in 2015, bidders who had battled in the auction room then sat and discussed some of the highlights of the evening. The smokes paired up superbly with the whisky offerings courtesy of Robert Graham Ltd. Mike Choi, manager of the lounge, looked after everyone in his usual calm and refined way, making sure delicious canapés circulated the room and whisky glasses were kept topped up.

Overall, this was the best cigar auction we have had so far, we look forward to seeing you at the next one which has been scheduled for the 28th of February!
