Rare whisky / Rare cigars – bring it on!

January has kicked off with a busier than busy bang 🙂 and I spent a few days up in Scotland this week in the fabulous new Robert Graham Ltd whisky and cigar store in Canongate, Edinburgh where I have had the pleasure of tasting and approving my limited edition Cigar Malt. When I say limited I really mean it as there are only 60 numbered bottles in presentation case. Actually make that 59 as we have used 1 bottle for “testing purposes” 🙂

Cask strength and non chill filtered this 1992 Speyside Distillery is simply splendid.

The exclusive Robert Graham Cigar Malt was tested with one of my current favourite cigars the Cohiba Gran Reserva.

If you would like to be one of the lucky chaps to enjoy this Cigar Malt I will be offering a bottle together with a single Cohiba Gran Reserva at just £135 inclusive shipping. You may need to email us fast though 🙂 sales@cgarsltd.co.uk a must for whisky and cigar aficionados.

Due to the bizarre laws in Scotland being different to England we are no longer able to legally sample cigars in our cigars stores in Scotland but fortunately we have a lovely cigar friendly apartment 2 minutes away from Royal Mile 🙂

Today I had the pleasure of a visit from Jemma Freeman (Managing Director of Hunters and Frankau) at our new whisky and cigar store in West Hampstead, London and I think Jemma was pretty impressed with our fine range of Havanas. Our London store is open till 8 p.m and I think that’s the only late closing cigar store in London which is perfect if you want to pop in for a smoke. We still have a few lockers available for clients who wish to lay down cigars for their later smoking pleasure or investment safe in the knowledge they will be professionally cared for.

Finally the printers have made it through the snow and delivered my book! so my apologies for the late shipping to clients who pre ordered and I am happy to say all orders have started shipping today
