We have finally closed the auction catalogue list today and the final printed catalogue has gone to press and will be distributed on Monday. We had to cut it off at 300 Lots which is a fairly huge auction 🙂 Full details on our auction website
Boisdale Belgravia was our chosen restaurant for a herf last night and it was good to make new cigars smoking friends on the terrace. A cold evening but the heaters and blankets did a good job at keeping us warm as we smoked our way through a baggie of Monte 2’s BBF and SD 4’s. And.. well done to the Boisdale chef for the best Gravadlax we have ever tasted 🙂
Herfed my way through a few Punch Serie D’Oro no.1 this week and they just keep getting better. Stash them in your humidor while you can as stocks are starting to get low on this fabulous UK regional edition
New ranges for Christmas being added to the website all the time and we have had cigar photographer Tillman Pretscher working in our offices all week together with our full time photographer Blanka who was busy photographing our ever growing range of humidors which now includes Daniel Marshall and Elie Bleu
Famous cigar roller Hamlet of the Romeo factory in Havana has been busy rolling dark and oily wrapper robustos for us with some splendid mature leaf for the last 5 days and we are grateful to Hunters and Frankau for sending him over to us as he is exceptionally skilled and a first rate roller.

Our friend Kiminori Yagi from cigar Bar Bridge in Tokyo also came over to London for an office herf this week, always lovely to see him and I’m looking forward to herfing in Tokyo again in the near future.
Just a few days till my trip to Havana for the Partagas Festival 🙂
Have a smokey weekend
