Lunch in Paris….sounds like a good idea
Bloody awful weather in London…may as well have lunch in Paris instead!
My herfin’ Amigo Zaff ( from The3Amigo’s herfing crew!) and I decided that we were tired of the cold and rain in London so we would hop on Eurostar for the day and suffer the cold and rain in Paris instead
Well fortunately there was no rain and it wasn’t too cold either so Zaff and I arrived in Paris and started searching for friendly cigars shops as we wanted to smoke some of the regional edition Bolivar Libertadors and Juan Lopez Obus.
We experienced excellent attentive service at La Civette and Tabac George V…thanks Guys!
The cigars were better than we could have hoped for…the chunky (Cohiba sublimes) sized Bolivar was a veritable power house that I can only imagine will become better and better as the cigar ages.
The Juan Lopez Obus is a campana sized cigar ( I love this size ) and although young already shows balance and complexity.I think this will become a great Havana.
Made in small quantity in numbered boxes/cabinets in 10’s and 25’s these cigars can only be purchased in France…..I’ve stashed a few in Paris for our annual Paris herf ( the Nomorescots herf crew will enjoy these beauties I’m sure!)
Our friend Arnaud joined us for lunch at Cafe Ruc opposite the Hotel du Louvre and is highly recommended.
Service was impeccable and smoking was permitted.Food was very enjoyable as was the Chateau Beychevelle which worked very well with our cigars.
After lunch we retired to the bar at the Hotel du Louvre and enjoyed Partagas P2’s ( surprise surprise!) before we took the train back to…rainy London)-:
