Happy Valentines Folks !
At last my new website design is launched. Hope you like it.We are still ironing out a few glitches but navigation should be easier and faster. Suggestions and criticism always welcome. Well done to Laura and her team for the massive effort.
I’ve had a busy week selling chocolate cigars for Valentines, presumably these bypass the smoking ban although I do recall a chap in Edinburgh back in December who had a dram too many and tried to light one! I charged him extra as it had become hot chocolate 🙂
Obviously I’ll have to smoke a Romeo Y Julieta on Valentines and as I like large cigars it’s going to be the limited edition “Duke” I never rated this cigar when it was first released but it has certainly turned into a different beast with the benefit of a little patient maturing time in my humidor. This sweet tasting Havana is medium strength and medium flavour, beautifully crafted and well balanced. Grab some whilst they are still available as they are a limited edition.
I think I’ll go easy on the booze this weekend as I have a big whisky sampling week coming up so I’ll pair up the Romeo Duke with some delicate Champers. I reckon our Andre Clouet Rose should be perfect but if you are looking for something a little smaller checkout these little beauties Jannison Baradon or the pink baby in our range Moutard.
Check this sampler out if you really want to treat the one you love 🙂 Yummmmster !
Our London shop held a whisky sampling session on Tuesday which was very well attended and the ’92 Speyside certainly went down well. A dram of Speyside matched up with an Upmann Corona Junior was a perfect combination for a cold afternoon and of course it’s perfectly OK to enjoy sampling smokes and drinks in my shop.
Two more of our team (Lucy and Mirka) received the certificates having attended Hunters and Frankau’s Cigar School on Tuesday and three more of our team are on the next Cigar School next week. I’m aiming to have more Cigar Specialists than any other cigar merchant in the world! (After all I am a cigar megalomaniac!)
Next week I’m travelling up to my cigar stores in Liverpool, Chester, Glasgow and Edinburgh to do a little quality control sampling…. could be a tough week-not !
So Happy Valentines to Karyn and Mish and Laura and all of the C.Gars girls 🙂
Have a smokey weekend
