We’re planning on some fine English Market Selection Havana herfing on the 27th and 28th including:

Juan Lopez Seleccion no.2 ‘ Orchant Seleccion’ 

El Rey del Mundo Choix de L’Epoque La Flor de Cano Short Robustos  

Por Larranaga Regalias de Londres…   should be a good start 🙂

We’re still hopeful that the new Upmann will be released in the UK this month and we may even see small quantity of the Montecristo No.2 Gran Reserva although I gather it will be out in more reasonable volume early next year. No firm date as yet for the 2011 UK regional but we are ever hopeful (!)

Christmas season is her! Great gift selections on this linkNext week I’m heading off to the sunshine of Havana for the Partagas Festival, always a great event and a good chance to catch up with old friends as well as make new friends, all who appreciate the brand of Partagas. I’ll be staying at the Hotel Nacional as always and herfing nightly on the terrace, visiting 1 or 2 factories as well as Pinar del Rio.

Off to the Lanesborough for a herf this evening with friends 🙂

Have a smokey week 

Peaceful puffing
