Seleccion Orchant Ramon Belicosos

I am very proud to finally have of my current favourite Havana in a very limited edition double banded “Seleccion Orchant” version.


These delightful English Market Selection Ramon Belicosos have factory code POS and date code Mar 07. They are perfect examples of brand,vitola and vintage.


They were hand selected by me at Hunters and Frankaus’ London humidor and believe me I have selected the crème de la crème.


Only 2 master cases (that’s 64 boxes in total….as I was born in 1964! ) have been exclusively double banded for me and I have numbered and signed each box. ( There will never be a “re-release” either. This is a one off I have commissioned that will not be repeated on this cigar.)


Now how beautiful do these cigars look?!… least as beautiful as they smoke.


My thanks to John Darnton and Simon Chase at Hunters and Frankau for all their help

Hunters & Frankau Summer Cigar Party…yes it was :-)

Well done Hunters and Frankau for putting on an even better Cigar Party than last year 🙂 The weather was amazing, sunny and warm, rock on global warming 😉


Over 300 avid cigar aficionados enjoyed the soon to be launched H Upmann Magnum 50 and Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure Especial accompanied with copious quantities of Champagne and Mojitos whilst enjoying some excellent Cuban music from the band.


Spotted a few celebs including David Soul (Don’t give up on us baby!) and Jimmy Saville ( Jim’ll fix it!) and many of our best cigar merchants including Edward Sahakian (Davidoff), Desmond Sautter, The boys from JJ Fox to name a few.


Well done to Camille ,our competition prize draw winner who seemed to be enjoying many Mojitos and cigars… He yells me the custom rolled torp he smoked was fabulous:-)


The event should get some good Cigar trade coverage in the Press as I saw Colin from European Cigar Cult Journal puffing on a Hoyo ( Can’t miss him as he’s 7 foot tall!)


Mishie will put photos of the event on the website in the next 24 hours.


Congratulations to our other Michele from our Liverpool cigar store on her wedding yesterday


Have to run… off to lunch at Lords cricket ground for the annual event by the Association of Independent Tobacco Specialists:-)
