Yes it’s true, after long delays having our premises ‘licenced’ (a rather nail biting experience for Ron and I) we finally received the licence at 4.30pm last Friday and our colleague Linda opened the doors to the new Robert Graham shop in Glasgow on Saturday.
Located in the heart of Glasgow at 111 West George street, our existing customers from the old West Nile street shop (as well as our previous shops in St Vincent’s street!) will see that it’s a vast improvement in every way!
The walk in humidor is spacious and very well set out and features a mouth-watering range of Havana cigars that can of course be selected in singles, small packs and full boxes.
We will also have a comprehensive range of new world cigars and in particular will be featuring and recommending the following premium brands:
Ron and I have come a long way since we went into business together almost 10 years ago taking over the last and rather dreary Robert Graham shop in St Vincent’s street but we were determined to build the brand back to where it was many many years ago and build an independent bottler brand and an old fashioned family run business… Looks like we have succeeded. But we won’t end the story there as we are already planning on our next acquisition… Watch this space 🙂
We now have 5 specialist whisky and cigar shops, 2 in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Cambridge and London. Robert Graham whisky and our award winning Dancing Stag brand of single malt whisky can also be found at our Turmeaus cigar shops in London Mayfair, Liverpool and Chester
Beautiful shops, unrivalled range of product and knowledgeable and helpful sales assistants. If it’s not the best shopping experience at a cigar shop that you have ever had email me at firstname.lastname@example.org because you have my personal promise of outstanding service.
I’m looking forward to visiting our Robert Graham shops in Scotland from the 8th September for a good few days and hope to have a dram with customers old and new.
Michelle’s finally back in the London command and control centre 🙂 So I’m getting back to routine with a herf with friends at the office later today and then on to one or two of our fabulous cigar friendly spots this evening, The Wellesley or the Lanesborough or maybe the gorgeous Bulgari (Edward Sahakian humidor)
I’ve been puffing my way through some Orchant Seleccion Bolivar Belicosos Finos for the last few days which are awesome smokes, matured from my favourite 2007 vintage… Sweetness and spice from start to finish, just unreal.
Also managed to get a few smokes in with my Dad, who always loved the Saint Luis Rey brand of Havana cigars. So we decided to have a good sampling session of Regios and Serie A and he reckons the blend is a true return to form and I’m bound to agree with him. Lucky newsletter clients will have been amazed at the value on a box of 25 of these cigars recently. Let’s be honest – no one in the UK can touch us on price or service – guaranteed.
We paired the cigars up with a bottle of 1995 Clynelish which was a perfect match for the cigars, fruity and well balanced.
Scott from Tor imports (cigar importers with great brands like Padron, Dunhill and Alec Bradley to name a few ) popped into the office for coffee and smokes this morning and we had a brilliant planning session for some fabulous new cigars that we will be releasing over the next few months.
Monday 2nd September (is it already September next week ?!) I’ll be at Robert Graham Cambridge for the whisky and cigars tasting session. We have some fabulous limited edition Punch Serie D’Oro no.2 to try out amongst other cigars as well as some great single malt whisky. Oh! and we also have the Cuban roller doing some mas fuerte fresh rolled robustos. Should be a great evening.
Have a smokey weekend
