Well it’s that time of year again, Jewish new year (Rosh Hashanah) 48 hours of non stop eating…. nothing unusual there then:-) Fabulous, I just love it.
If I was not a Havana cigar connoisseur I would likely recommend a honey flavoured cigar as being appropriate but I am, so …I won’t!
The good news of course is that smoking cigars is quite permissible on Rosh Hashanah but you have to remember to pre cut before Yom Tov comes in Monday evening and also have a 48 hour candle burning as using matches/lighters is strictly a no-no.
Needless to say I’m prepared with 3 Partagas P2’s, 3 Monte 2’s ( just in case MO senior fancies a smoke) and 3 BBF’s plus two pre cut Cuaba salamones in reserve:-)
I suggest you let the tip of the candle flame just lick the foot of the cigar. Don’t go slamming the cigar right into the flame of the candle or your cigar is likely to end up tasting of wax instead of tobacco.
So I won’t be answering emails Monday evening through Wednesday evening but Laura and Mishie will be running the business as ever and happy to assist and advise
Thursday I’ll be herfing in Hamburg. If anyone wants meet up for a smoke,I’ll be at La Casa del Habano at around 10.30 in the morning.
Wishing all friends and clients a happy,peaceful and healthy new year
