Happy New Year!

Just back to the office after 4 days of holiday herfing 🙂 smoked through a stash of good stuff including some great vintage Davidoff and some of the early UK regionals which are all maturing very well indeed.

Best of all was a Davidoff Dom Perignon 1988 matched with Dom Perignon champagne 1988 – very tasty combo! Por Larranaga Magnificos with Bollinger RD wasn’t too shabby either 🙂

We were of course available 24/7 by email and phone over the weekend and I was surprised how many people were online ! but we love hearing from our clients and I think many of them were happy to have advice available immediately.

Same goes for the 3 days New Year’s weekend- drop us an email anytime sales@cgarsltd.co.uk

All our cigars shops are open as normal if you need to top up for New Year’s eve and we guarantee mail order delivery for next day arrival if you order online before 3pm.

The new Mayfair shop – Alfie Turmeaus Tobacconist has started up in style with loads of local clients happy to have a shop in Shepherd Market. Our sampling area will have its finishing touches completed early in January and our walk in humidor is crammed full of every Havana cigar you could possibly want. My assistant, Lucia who has years of experience at C.Gars Ltd and Robert Graham in West Hampstead is always happy to help you choose the perfect cigar, humidor or gift. We have also now made available a great range of loose and pre-packed pipe tobacco.

OK so friends keep asking me what my favourite cigars of the year have been and here’s the list of my top 5 :

Partagas Serie E No.2 

La Flor de Cano Short Robustos 

Partagas Serie D No. 5 

Cohiba 1966 

Cohiba BHK54

All truly outstanding smokes. The 1966 will age and mature perfectly for many years to come, the LFDC has become my go to morning smoke on the drive to the office, the BHK 54 was the best of the 3 IMHO and I just love the 2 new Partagas cigars.

I’ll be smoking a few of these cigars over the weekend and have 4 Dunhill Cabinetta tucked away for New Year’s eve to enjoy with my Father (together with a Magnum of Pol!)

What a great year for Havanas and what a great year for C.Gars Ltd and Robert Graham Ltd! we now have (far) more cigar specialist shops that anyone in the UK specialist cigar trade and our mail order service has grown dramatically yet again. No sign of recession in this business! We are already planning our next shop opening around Easter 2012 and it will be our flagship cigars and single malt emporium in the UK. 

We’ll carry on trying to give the best service, the fastest delivery, the largest choice and of course the most competitive prices that  are at the heart of our business.

Wishing all of our Staff, Management, Suppliers and Clients a very happy and smokey New Year

Peaceful puffing
