At last! Schools out and summer hols have definitely started as London’s roads are no longer congested and it now only takes the time to smoke a Partagas short to get to the office whereas it usually takes a Romeo Short Churchill 🙂
But what happened to the hottest summer on record ? Never mind,maybe next month. I’m getting out of the rain for a few days and heading to Spain to herf with clients and friends. The big decision is what to take to smoke and I’m leaning towards 2008 UK regionals. The La Gloria Gloriosos being the perfect daytime smoke and the Punch Serie D’Oro no.1 being simply… perfect. Complex, full bodied but smooth. Well constructed and vein free wrappers of perfect appearance. I honestly don’t think it gets any better. Get them while you can as I reckon they will be sold out in the next 8 weeks
I’m now hopeful that we will get the 2009 UK regionals late September and we are all very excited to test out the blends
Juan Lopez Seleccion Suprema 6 3/4″ length an d 52 ring gauge in slide lid boxes of 10 and El Rey del Mundo Choix de L’Epoque 4″ length and 52 ring gauge in dress boxes of 25. Can these possibly be as good as the 2008 regional editions? It does seem that the UK still gets the best of the best. We shall see.
We also expect the new limited editions for 2009 to be available early September as well as the new Trinidad T (Robusto) which is a great smoke if it’s as good as the ones I tried in Havana in February at The Festival.
Romeo Dukes 5 1/2″ length and 45 ring gauge boxes of 10
H Upmann Magnum 48 4″ length and 48 ring gauge boxes of 25
Bolivar Petit Belicosos 5″ length and 52 ring gauge boxes of 25
More details to follow as soon as we have firm release dates for these fine new additions to our range
Still no firm release date for the Cohiba Gran Reserva I’m afraid but watch this space and I’ll let you know the minute they are available. Overwhelming interest in this splendid cigars which could well become the fastest collectors item of all times !
