I zoomed over to Hamburg on the Squeezy jet last Tuesday to do some rather tasty rum testing at La Casa del Habano Hamburg with my partner Christoph Wolters. I was knocked out by an incredible Diademas that Christoph gave me to try. This cigar was rolled 5 years ago at the Partagas factory and banded for Christoph (or Cristobal as he is affectionately known) The vitola was “Diademas” and it was a sublime smoking experience. TY CW.
It never ceases to amaze me how busy our cigar lounge is in Hamburg, literally packed every day with the nicest bunch of guys, talk about a regular nightly herf! If you get a chance to visit Hamburg, our LCDH is a must. Christoph is probably the most knowledgeable cigar merchant in the world and a delight to herf with ( as I’m sure his customers will agree!)
