Smokes in Edinburgh…drinks in Glasgow :-)

Grabbed the Squeezy Jet to Edinburgh to meet up with my partner Ron for an impromptu herf at our Scottish outposts 🙂

After unfolding my body following a bumpy and cramped flight I was definitely ready for a smoke.

Unfortunately the insane smoking ban means that smoking even for sampling purposes is not allowed in Scotland specialist cigar shops ( not that there are many cigars shops left in Scotland!)

Fortunately it was a beautiful mild and sunny day so we enjoyed some Ramon Allones Belicosos at the pub opposite our cigar shop and we plan to put tables and chairs outside our store by Spring so our customers and friends can herf to their hearts content when the weather is good.

We have introduced a rather yumster range of Scottish fudges/marmalades/shortbread which did my diet no good at all


  …..but at least the range of speciality beer gave me a good laugh ! Too funny


Ron and I took the train over to our new Glasgow shop located on West Nile street to see how it had changed since we bought it just over a month ago and …so far so good. Comprehensive range of single malts with something to please everyone. Great range of Havana cigars arriving in store next Tuesday… finally 🙂


I think we are the only Havana cigar specialist remaining in Glasgow now that Herbert Love have closed their doors… oh dear/what a shame/never mind.

Robert Graham Ltd has been around since 1874 so we are rather experienced whisky merchants ( I am rather experienced at drinking whisky 🙂  ) and we bottle our own unique single malts which can not be found anywhere else in the country. Ron suggested we tried one of them which was quite splendid with a Cohiba piramides from 2006.


Tough day and all that 🙂


Have a great weekend…..and peaceful puffing
