That’s it! – Another year just about completed 🙂 and after a splendid Christmas, drinking way too much Champagne together with some outrageous vintage Havanas (Dunhill Estupendos and Davidoff 5000 to name a few) I’m looking forward to New Year’s Eve with some Bilecart Salmon 1989 Champagne and a Dunhill Havana Club that has been resting in my humidor since the 1980’s… Could be worse 🙂
I had a lovely day at Robert Graham’s new Cambridge whisky and cigar shop yesterday which seems to be a perfect meeting place for C.Gars, Robert Graham and even LCDH customers from Hamburg! Quite a few of whom are already enjoying the comfort of the sampling lounge (Now that we have a little background music and have figured out how the espresso machine works, finally!)
Record sales reported from all of our cigar shops this year and no surprise that our award winning whiskies are selling like crazy.
So my favourite cigars of 2012 were:
Bolivar Britanicas UK Regional Edition
Partagas Serie C No. 3 Limited Edition
Fuente Opus X Belicosos XXX – The best from the Dominican Republic
Cohiba Piramides Extra – New to the Cohiba range
Punch Medalla de Oro – UK Regional Edition
Inka Bombaso Maduro Azul – From Peru and immensely popular
Regius Robusto – splendid Nicaraguan fast getting a big following
C.Gars Ltd Nicaraguan Robusto – Exclusive to us and great value
Ramon Allones Petit Belicoso – UK Regional Edition
Quai’ D’Orsay Coronas – Orchant Seleccion
H. Upmann Half Corona – Cheeky little smoke!
Wow! That was a great year for new cigars, not sure if we can top that in 2013.
Well I’m just about wrapped up at the office and heading home for a few days off but the Team is online 24/7 as always to help with any advice or queries and our retail stores are open every day except New Year’s Day.
Wishing all our friends a very happy and smokey New Year.
