Sorry for the lack of blogging of recent…if not busy selecting finest Havanas,have been waaay busy spending time with the family over Christmas weekend:-)…OK so now I have 8 Pounds in weight to lose after 4 days of non stop eating in and eating out !…and just a little drinking too Thanks to J and J for a magnificent marathon Xmas lunch!…and welcome to Niall as our newest and youngest herf club member
Herfed with Zaff and JB at the London office last week and matched up the new Cohiba piramides LE with some splendid 1990 Lanson…needless to say we all agreed that match was perfect…we then continued to smoke some awesome Partagas SD4 Reserva that I was keeping back for a suitable occasion….sublime.
On the matter of “Sublimes” there are no more left! not a single cigars…we have totally and utterly sold out…thanks to all of my clients no happily enjoying a good Cohiba Sublimes.
Popped over to my Father yesterday and we smoked Davidoff Dom Perignon 1988 with a wee dram off 1975 Littlemill…now that was a great pairing.Both subtle taste and flavour combos with great balance and complexity.
Looking forward to next year…should be a BIG cigar year…great regional editions including the PL magnificos for the UK market ( thank you Simon Chase!) and the new Cohiba maduros which I am hoping to see at the Festival at the end of Feb.
Launch party for my La Casa del Habano in Hamburg now scheduled for late April with many famous personalities from the industry due to attend ( email me for more details should you wish to attend) Christoph and Art at LCDH-Hamburg tell me business is booming in the shop and we will be opening our private cigar meeting/tasting room early next year which we are really excited about as we will be holding regular tastings of vintage cigars that will be reported by the cigar Press no doubt.
So I’m off for a week in the sunshine….herf’dor full of P2’s and BBF’s…blazer full
Happy new year All…good smoking and long ashes.
