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!

My New Smoking Shop!
September 2015
new cigar and whisky shop in Chester
I am pleased to report that building starts next week on our third shop in Chester! All three of our shops intercommunicate so the original shop specializes in New World cigars and pipe tobacco and has a pipe sampling area at the front of the shop, the middle shop is the beautiful La Casa del Habano with our superb Havana cigar sampling lounge and whisky sampling bar at the back of the premises. The new shop will dramatically increase our range and offerings of single malt whisky, rum and other spirits and will also feature premium New World cigars that can of course be sampled on the new premises.

Stay tuned for more information!

New Smokes...
August 2015
Our La Casa del Habano in Chester has already received the new Partagas Maduro No. 1 and has already… Sold out. More on the way thankfully as this is another winner I’m pleased to report. Measuring in at 5 1/8” length and 52 ring gauge this dark and oily beast is the bomb! Its best suited to the experienced Havana cigar smoker. Full and very sweet flavour throughout, great construction, beautiful aroma and a very serious and complex blend.

Our Winter auction catalogue is almost full which is probably a record as there are still over 3 months before the sale on the 30th November. We expect to be offering over 300 Lots and this sale will feature the largest Pre Embargo section I have ever seen. Some of these cigars are so rare, even I have never seen them before. I find Pre Embargo Havanas breath taking to look at and sublime to smoke. When stored correctly, they are incredible. Delicate flavours, great construction and a cigar experience never to forget.

I commissioned some amazing cigar ashtrays to be made for C.Gars. Check them out on this link. Each one is individual and hand made in Hungary. Very cool. If you are a client of Turmeaus Mayfair you may be interested to know that my assistant Daniel’s Mother makes these ashtrays. She is quite an artisan.

Hoyo San Juan are back in stock as are Por Larranaga Sobresalientes (in small quantity) I love the San Juan, it’s a monster smoke at 5 7/8” length and 54 ring gauge and gives huge volumes of smoke with the perfect balance of strength and flavour.

We’re adding to our whisky range all the time (good excuse to sample the stock!) and of course Turmeaus Mayfair, Liverpool and Chester are all licensed. See the range on this link. I planning to add a Turmeaus whisky shop to our retail group in a few weeks’ time due to overwhelming demand and our need for additional retail space. More details to follow.

ou can even buy whisky and rum by the dram in the bar at Turmeaus Chester, we have quite a range. I’ll be back in Chester for the whisky and cigar tasting on the 10th September. Book up soon as the event is almost sold out already!
Back to the UK...
August 2015
Finally at the office again but only for a few days this week as I plan on heading up North next week to meet builders at yet another new shop which we plan to open in September, all very exciting.

California Dreamin’
August 2015
Inca – Secret Blend Inca – Secret Blend
The Los Angeles office has been very busy over the last week with a series of Inca – Secret Blend cigar tasting sessions. The overwhelming verdict is that this is the perfect any time smoke.It doesn’t knock you out with strength but has volumes of sweet flavours from the first to the last puff. The brand was introduced in the US a few weeks ago and I understand the first production batch is already sold out.

Inca – Secret Blend will be available in select cigar specialists in California in the next few weeks.My thanks to all the Secret Blend retailers who are working with us to make my little boutique brand successful.

Meanwhilst the Inka – Secret Blend range in the UK goes from strength to strength and continues to be our most popular New World brand of cigars. Being the maker of the brand has given me a great advantage as there is no middleman so I can pass the savings on to our clients.I keep the packaging for the UK brand simple and the cost to a bare minimum as this is all about premium tobacco at an affordable price.

Regius Cigars
H. Upmann Magnum 56 Talking about affordable prices you really should check out our current pricing on Regius cigars as there is no way we can hold such low pricing for much longer. Premium cigars at budget prices. Quality Nicaraguan tobacco, great wrapper and all the popular sizes. No idea why we seem to be the only cigar specialist selling these great smokes in the UK but they are storming out of our shops with non stop repeat orders.

H. Upmann Magnum 56 Limited Edition
I hear that the Upmann Magnum 56 Limited Edition came out in the UK a few days ago. From the feedback I am seeing on our Facebook account it looks like a bit of a winner. I cant wait to try one when I get back to London. I’m not sure why so many of these huge format cigars are made. I love a big cigar but reckon most people these days are in a hurry and want short and fat cigars, generally Robustos and Petit Robustos seem to be ideal for the UK.

First 2015 Limited Edition Cigar
July 2015
H. Upmann Magnum 56 Limited Edition Cuban Cigar 2015The first of the 2015 Limited Edition Cuban cigars has now arrived in the UK!

The H. Upmann Magnum 56 LE 2015

Boasting an impressive 56 ring gauge, it is the second largest girth used on a Limited Edition cigar since the concept was introduced in the year 2000. The 2014 Cohiba Robusto Supremos leads the way with a 58 gauge.

New Orleans!
July 2015
We’re excited about the possibility of introducing La Palina cigars to the UK market and we plan to add to our existing Nat Sherman range, as I found a cracker of a smoke that I will be importing to the UK very soon. I love Nat Sherman and it’s my favourite shop to visit when I’m in NYC.

Turmeaus shops and customers will be very happy to hear I bought zillions of new pipes that can’t normally be found in the UK so their ranges are about to have some delightful quality and value additions. Our pipe tobacco business has been going ballistic over the last two years. Best value in the UK guaranteed - if I’m wrong I will gladly price match.

 Inca Secret Blend - Robusto As most of C.Gars blog readers know, I love Alec Bradley Cigars! We have started a project to have a special release for the UK market only which is very cool and will be very exclusive to two or three cigar specialist only.

I probably don’t need to bang on about the success of the Inka – Secret Blend cigars I created for the UK market but I can now confirm that our Inca- Secret Blend created for the US and International market seem to be selling out faster than we could ever have dreamed. I’m now finalizing the blend on my Inca Robusto, which will roll out in a few months’ time. We are adding retailers daily and some are listed on our Inca website.

By creating a new cigar and commissioning a Cuban rum to pair them with, this then of course is presented in a handmade Limited Edition humidor. The result of this is the long awaited Ramon Allones Hunters & Frankau Aniversario 225 Cigar & Commemorative Humidor, and I must say, it looks beautiful!
