Our Vintage Cigar Auction held in London last week was a great success. Thanks to all our bidders. James Suckling did a great article on Cigar Aficionado website
We had a great crowd at the fabulous Boisdale cigar terrace including Jemma Freeman and Simon Chase from Hunters and Frankau, Edward Sahakian from Davidoff, Adrian Leslie from Cigars Unlimited, Ajay Patel from La Casa del Habano as well as many bidders from the UK and overseas.
Our VIP dinner at Boisdale was a delight as always and my thanks to Ranald and his team for all their kind support
To say the last week was the busiest week so far this year is an understatement! our offices have been crammed with clients and friends inspecting auction cigars and the lucky winners – collecting cigars.
We have been offering our usual hospitality of copious quantities of our delicious house champagne as well as mountains of smoked salmon sandwiches, snacks of course plenty of cigars to sample. Indeed not all cigar merchants are the same !
We are aiming to settle with all auction sellers early next week unlike other auctioneers who I understand can take substantially longer !
Last night I had dinner with clients at the Ritz Club Casino (has to be one the finest restaurants in London) and found out they have a fabulous terrace for cigar smoking (as long as the weathers good!)
Our London cigar and whisky shop is now larger than ever as we bought the shop next door and we have added more tables and chairs and very large ashtrays for cigars smokers to enjoy an outdoor smoke whilst the weather so nice. Shoot me an email if you plan on visiting as my office is only round the corner so I can always pop over for a sampling session 🙂

I’m making a few more custom blend Havanas available , recently rolled at our London offices. Maximum 10 cigars per order – sorry!
Lots of requests for the 2010 UK regionals but I’m sorry to say you will have to be patient till around September when we expect them to be released- they will be worth the wait 🙂
Have a great weekend.
