Adios London – Ola Havana :-)

Just back from a few days up in Scotland visiting my Robert Graham whisky, cigar and chocolate stores and talk about the finer things in life πŸ™‚ they can all be found in our stores and our Canongate store on the Royal Mile finally has the whisky tasting lounge completed and looking rather splendid

At C.Gars Ltd I love to offer different cigars that can’t be found anywhere in the world and as a specialist in vintage Havanas we try to keep the range interesting and ever changing. Check out the aged sections on the website to see some great Davidoff, Dunhill and pre embargo cigars.

I’m planning to get my way round the smoking ban with a cruise herf in New York in summer. Checkout the boat on this link! Looking forward to sampling some Dominican, Nicaraguan and Honduran cigars with a lot of friends whilst cruising to the Statue of Liberty and watching the New York Skyline, should be a great herf

So I’m starting to get ready for the 2010 Festival del Habanos next week and looking forward to visiting El Laguito and La Corona cigar factories as well as trying out some of the new cigars due for launch this year including the new Cohiba Behikes cigars.
