Behikes – lower prices than expected!

Happy Monday Folks !   

Well it sure is a happy one as we just heard from Hunters and Frankau that prices on the next Cohiba Behikes are lower than expected which is great news.    The not so good news is that allocations are tighter than expected    If you placed a pre order don’t worry you will only be charged the new lower price 🙂   

The latest line of Cohiba – the Behikes aka ‘ BHK’

A limited annual production so when they are gone – that’s it for the year.

I think that makes them a candidate for laying down, maturing and collecting and many of my clients are already making 10 year plans for laying down a quantity of BHK’s annually.

The BHK’s have a different blend to the 40th anniversary Behikes (aged 5 years) as well as an extra Medio tiempo filler leaf which will give the cigar a very distinct flavour characteristic as this is a dark leaf from the top of the plant.

These splendid Havanas are presented in boxes of 10.

We have also made a sampler pack available.

The good news is that prices are now lower than we expected !!!

Don’t worry if you pre ordered you will only be charged the new reduced price 🙂

BHK 52 singles £28

BHK  52 box of 10 £269

BHK 54 singles £36

BHK 54 box of 10 £355

BHK 56 singles £42

BHK 56 box of 10 £399

BHK sampler – £103


Launch date is 12th may with a mega H&F bash at the Goring Hotel    I smoked the last BHK 56 that I brought back from the Festival this morning and I have to say this is the most incredible blended Havana, truly unlike any other, sweet and spicy tingle on the tongue complexity. I reckon this is going to be the most popular Cohiba of all time.   

Peaceful puffing

Cohiba Behikes! Available NOW!

Greetings from sunny London 🙂

Spent a long evening at Boisdale Belgravia on Thursday as my flight to France had been cancelled due to the volcano and I thought oh well what the hell J my friends and I smoked our way through an extraordinary quantity of Monte 2’s as they seem to be better, sweeter, smoother than we ever remember. Matched up the Monte 2’s with the Argentinean Malbec (great value) and then some Argentinean Merlot on Boisdales wine list and I can confirm it all worked out very well indeed!

Our friend Tillman (famous photographer) is coming to London on Monday so we’re herfing at 10 Manchester street in the evening- if you would like to join us shoot me am email at sales@cgarsltd.co.uk

May the 12th sees the UK launch of Cohiba Behikes and as expected allocations are very very tight

Around 5 weeks till my boat cruise herf in New York where we are delighted to be joining forces with Oliva cigars for an evening of smokes, drinks, dinner whilst cruising up to the Statue of Liberty (it’s a 4 hour cruise so I gather we may be going round the statue in circles a few times!). I understand that we will also have a cigar roller on the cruise. Let’s hope the boat’s steady whilst he’s using the chaveta 🙂

I’m going to put together a vintage Cuban rum and vintage cigar tasting evening in June- if you’d like more details shoot me an email and I’ll put you on the guest list

Have a great weekend

Peaceful puffing

Alejandro Robaina R.I.P.

I just heard the sad news that Alejandro Robaina has passed away aged 91

A wonderful character whom, I was lucky enough to have met many times over the last 12 years of visiting Cuba

He was still smoking cigars and making jokes the last time I saw him in November

He will be missed and I’ll be smoking a cigar from his 83rd anniversary humidor in his honour this evening

Peaceful puffing

Greetings from sunny Marbella

Greetings from sunny Marbella where I have been enjoying relaxing with the company off some delightful Cohiba Sublimes extra and Gran Reserva and just the occasional Dom Perignon

Back to Blighty tomorrow and delighted to hear that the new Cohiba Behikes range will be launched on the 12th May at an exclusive Hunters and Frankau party that evening. Book your ticket to this event through C.Gars Ltd in order to snag two additional Behikes for your humidor !

Allocations are sure to be tight but we hope to be able to satisfy our clients demands as we will of course have allocations for all our retail outlets in the UK as well as La Casa del Habano Hamburg.

Be sure to register your interest to ensure you have the option to purchase these splendid cigars. No need to ask price- we won’t know till a few days before launch

Another fine release of a great variety of interesting Havanas. Intact shipping included in the prices of course. That means from order till delivery is only around 2-4 working days 🙂 and you pay nothing extra.

So whether you are looking for some bargain 10 year matured Havanas or some rarer than rare smokes-feast your eyes.

Quantity is limited and when they are gone…. they are gone.

We are offering these cigars on a first come first served basis. – sadly not available to our clients in the UK

Existing client can simply email us on sales@cgarsltd.co.uk or use this dummy secure order link

Happy Easter- you bet it is :)

Readers of my blog have been emailing me to ask if Cohiba Behikes will be arriving as expected in April as I mentioned that we expected them in March/April earlier this year – sadly not, likely but we are now expecting them and in fact pretty confident they will be released by mid May.

Interest hit fever pitch after I was interviewed by CNN recently

I’m hoping that Hunters and Frankau are going to do an exclusive glitzy launch party 🙂 as these incredible cigars deserve one!

We won’t have prices confirmed till just before the cigars are released but we will now accept pre registrations of interest via the online store so as soon as they are available, our clients who have pre registered will have first option on what will surely be limited availability of Behikes. Click here to pre order:

Cohiba Behike BHK 56 6 1/2″ length and 56 ring gauge
Cohiba Behike BHK 54 5 5/8″ length and 54 ring gauge

Vintage Cigar Auction fever is now hitting up with some splendid cigars arriving daily. More details on this link More details on this link If you can’t make it to the auction you will be able to bid online. The online catalogue will be available early May and the auction date is set for the 21st June.

I’m relaxing over the Easter weekend some delicious Punch Serie D’Oro no.1’s and Juan Lopez Seleccion Suprema – both exclusive to the UK market of course – and enjoying hem today with some splendid Port, thanks to my friend Josh from New York. Nice combo that works very well.

We seem to be buying and selling more vintage Havanas than ever and prices remain very stable. Most of our stocks never make it to the online store as we match up buyers and sellers. If you have a wish list, drop me a line. Whether singles or boxes 1950’s- 1990’s we may well be able to source the cigar of your dreams so do drop me a line sales@cgarsltd.co.uk

Happy Easter/Happy Pessach < delete as applicable> !
