London Herfing Rocks!

Another crazy week at the Orchant Cigar and Whisky Empire HQ 🙂 which started off with yet another overseas trip on Monday, this time to Geneva to do a valuation for a client on a delightful collection of 1980’s Cuban Davidoff.

I thought I wasn’t going to make it to Geneva as I have never known such bad turbulence on a flight in my life!… Anyway I live to tell the tale and enjoyed smoking a Davidoff Chatuea Yquem in Geneva with the owner of the collection which definitely soothed my nerves.

Inka - Secret Blend Small PacksInka Secret Blend cigars came back into stock last week and are selling like crazy. The new pack of 4 half coronas has proved a great success as have the hand rolled pack of Minis which are selling like crazy.

Made with 100% Peruvian tobacco in Tarapoto Peru. The tobacco is aged and the flavours as a result are full and sweet.  From wrapper to filler these cigars are 100% Peruvian and the only Puros from Peru on the market

I designed the packaging to be perfect to slip inside a gentlemen’s jacket or briefcase without being too bulky. 

If you don’t love these cigars I will gladly refund your money… Can’t be fairer than that!

Suitable for the experienced cigar smoker although also to be appreciated by the novice experimenting with flavour characteristics from different tobacco growing regions. 

My range of Inka – Secret Blend cigars are now our best-selling Non Cuban cigar range by a long stretch. 1000’s of my customers are enjoying them which speaks volumes for this brand that is exclusive to C.Gars Ltd, Robert Graham and Turmeaus shops across the UK. No one else can sell them as they are exclusive to C.Gars Group <insert maniacal laugh!>

We are very lucky to be spoilt with choice for herfing venues in London, great terraces and sampling rooms all over Town. The latest to be thoroughly tested out was the sampling room at Ten Manchester street. We have been enjoying herfing on the terrace for the last few years but there is also a dedicated sampling room tastefully decorated and comfortable with first rate service from Manageress Paula.

Ten Manchester Street Cigar HerfMy cigar smoking chums and I enjoyed herfing the new Montecristo Double Edmundo that have just been released with copious quantities of expertly mixed Old Fashioned cocktails (as good as the Wellesley… and that’s saying something!) Ten Manchester street – highly recommended.

Winter Cigar Auction catalogue is closed and at the printers now. Lots will be online late next week and what a great catalogue we have… As usual 🙂 It promises to be one helluva event as we are not only holding an Auction but following the auction with a decadent evening second to none. The Spectator Magazine Cigar Smoker of the Year Awards dinner follows the auction and full details are on the this link.

You may have to book soon though as half the tickets sold out in the first day they went online!

Davidoff cigars… What’s going on with them? The more we offer, the more popular they have become. I reckon it’s down to the quality of construction and consistency of blend, second to none in my book or should I say my humidor. The new Nicaraguan is definitely one to try for the experienced cigar smoker.

Robert Graham Cambridge Whisky Cigar Emporium Davidoff window displayWe have a smashing new window display at our Cambridge Robert Graham store and a comprehensive range has just arrived at our Mayfair Turmeaus store.

Next week we will be welcoming Arlety to our London offices to roll some fabulous Havanas and if you would like to see a demonstration simply drop me an email 

Arlety Alemany AzcuĂ­ originally learnt to roll cigars in some of the smaller factories of Pinar del Rio, the province where she was born. She then moved to Havana and began working in the Romeo y Julieta factory, where she remained for nine years. However, she then transferred to the H. Upmann factory where she has been for the past three years and where she is still located today. She specialises in rolling large format cigars such as Prominentes, Gran Coronas & Julieta No. 2s and has also spent time teaching trainee torcedors in training school.

Have a smokey weekend

Peaceful puffing
