Scotch and Cigar Heaven!

Last week was a busy one as I spent a few days at our whisky and cigar stores in Glasgow and Edinburgh where my partner Ron Morrison and I enjoyed our latest Robert Graham Ltd Independent bottled single malt whiskies.

We are hoping these will be award winners this year. Deanston 1995 I can tell you is an outrageously good match with Cohiba BHK52’s which we smoked back to back into the wee small hours.

I think Cigar Aficionado magazine recently gave an exceptionally high rating to Behike and they were not wrong. The blend is unlike any other Cohiba, smoother and sweeter and they just keep improving every time I revisit them.

Trip number 51 to Havana is this week as I am trying to escape the lousy London weather and hoping it will be a bit warmer smoking a cigar or two with some Cuban rum round the pool of the Hotel Nacional 🙂

Back in my London office we have finally approved the plans for our new walk in humidor due to be built at the end of April – we’re looking forward to it as once again we are completely out of space to store Havanas. We actually age a proportion of our inventory for later release which I understand cigar merchants used to do many years ago,

I’ve been smoking quite a few Partagas 165th anniversary cigars over the last week and they show great promise. Good smokes now, well balanced and of perfect appearance with smooth vein free wrapper and of course the special Partagas anniversary band. I have 2 humidors open and am making twin sets of the 109’s and sublimes available for friends to try before they buy a complete humidor. Checkout the photos on this link

Have a smokey week… I know I will!

Peaceful puffing
