Summer herfing!

This is serious smoking weather, hot ( ish !) days in London and mild evenings – no wonder our cigar sales continue to increase every week.

I enjoyed dinner/drinks/smokes at the packed Lanesborough cigar terrace on Wednesday evening. The Premier Cru Chablis is a comparative bargain(!) and works very well with a good Havana cigar. We smoked our way through Monte 2. Dip 2 and finished with a Partagas P2 🙂

The London humidor is finished – at long last, sorry for the lousy Blackberry photos but at least it gives you an idea of what it looks like. The joke is we are already busted out of space and wondering what the next expansion move is ! At least our clients now easily access their private locker stocks and with a massive central table our auction Lots can easily be viewed (which was previously a bit of a challenge to say the least).

The auction schedule is now updated on the website and tickets are available online in the next day or two. Catalogue listings are being completed in the next few days and will be online for bidding if you can’t make the actual event. It’s going to be an incredible afternoon and evening of herfing and no doubt a few lucky bidders will walk away with bargains!

The Summer Cigar Auction will be held on the 4th July 2011 at the fabulous new and cigar friendly Boisdale restaurant in Canary Wharf and it promises to be quite an event !

We expect to be offering some 250 Lots including mature full and part boxes, pre embargo cigars, limited editions boxes, jars, books and humidors, Davidoff, Dunhill to mention a few!

Cigar of the week has to be the Punch Serie D’Oro no.1 – exclusive to the UK released in 2008 and now a sweet, rich and complex smoke. Try them whilst they are still available as they can’t last much longer

Have a great weekend

Peaceful puffing
