Gone!

Its Summer auction time and we enjoyed a fabulous pre auction herf at the cigar terrace at Ten Manchester Street enjoying some first class English Market Selection (EMS) Partagas Petit Coronas aged to perfection from 1998 as well as Juan Lopez Selection No. 2 which were surprisingly good and mature tasting cigars, for a September 2011 date code. Delicious canapés, champagne and excellent service from Ten Manchester Street (Thanks guys!) the only sad part was that Italy lost against Spain!

So my brief blog comes to you this evening from Boisdale in Canary Wharf where we are holding our Summer Auction Event.

Our thanks to Davidoff for providing wonderful cigars as well as a cigar roller for the evening and Remy Martin for providing splendid French Mojito cocktails and Remy XO.

We are as usual transmitting the selling prices live but they are subject to verification so you will have to be patient till we get back to the office tomorrow to carefully check we have not made any typo’s.

To avoid any confusion for our many commission (absentee) bidders, you may well see that your maximum bid has been achieved on a Lot and wonder why you are in fact not the winner. The answer I’m afraid is simple, if we received two identical bids, the first one that was entered will be the winning bid. This is similar to 2 bidders in the room both willing to bid up to the same amount – the first bidder to reach that bid amount wins the Lot.

So the very best of luck to all of the bidders and the sellers and the preliminary results are as follows:
