Just back from our little outpost in Hamburg where we have the fabulous roller Beltram for the next few weeks Rodolfo is from the Romeo factory in Havana and we are privileged to have him in our La Casa del Habana I knew the weather would be great in Hamburg as the BBC weather forecast stated clearly that there would be heavy rain all day. Needless to say it was sunny and hot. So much so that we enjoyed lunch Al Fresco at the “Indo Chine” overlooking the harbour. I was amazed when I saw they have an Ice Bar upstairs. Fabulous but too cold for me!
Over lunch we taste tested the new and exclusive Orchant & Wolters Selection La Gloria Cubana Tainos which was as good as Wolters had told me it would be.Delicate and subtle sweet flavours throughout,complex and aromatic. Possibly the perfect day time Havana. On release from today.
Back to the cigar lounge for a bottle of 99 Pomerol and another O&W Tainos whilst signing all 120 boxes of cigars !
