This week is a serious week for herfing that started with a splendid cigar dinner at cigar friendly Harts Hotel in Nottingham the dinner was held in a Bedouin Tent and thankfully it was a dry and mild evening.
All three smokes were first rate and chosen by Simon Chase who talked about these cigars over the course of the evening. The post dinner cigars were Cohiba BHK 54’s, needless to say they were magnificent. Many thanks to Ashwan for the kind invitation and the Harts Hotel for a wonderful event and Simon Chase of course.
Yesterday was my birthday and I was not planning to head into the office but I had a call from my good friend and top basketball star Mark Blount who had zipped over to London for a few days so … it was office herf time for a long afternoon of Punch Serie D’Oro no.1’s and Cohiba BHK’s matched up with Vigia 18 year old Cuban rum (quite a lot of it !) Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill champagne and another few smokes in the evening completed the perfect day
So I decided it was probably best not to drive home and surprise surprise my car was given a parking ticket despite having a residents permit clearly displayed! How stupid or evil are these parking wardens? don’t even answer. Of course the ticket is now being cancelled. Talk about a waste of time.
Tonight I am heading to The Lamb at Hinden a delightful Hotel in Wiltshire owned by our friends Boisdale. It looks delightful and I’ll be taking my Co – Director Karyn with me for the evening 🙂
Tomorrow its smokes, dinner and more smokes at Boisdale in Belgravia who are so busy that they have only just managed to squish in my booking!
Monday I am off to our beautiful La Casa del Habano in Hamburg for the day and looking forward to some great regional edition smokes with my partner Christoph
