Well the good news is that I have just about survived the week in the office whilst Michelle has been very busy sunning herself in Havana. 🙂
By all accounts and the nonstop photo’s she has been taunting me with, she’s had a wonderful time. Mish has visited El Laguito (the Cohiba factory) as well as Pinar del Rio, she has partied at Tropicana and herfed her way through just about every cigar shop in Havana. Throw in a Daiquiri or two at Floridita and it’s fair to say…it’s been a good trip. But oh boy…do I ever miss her as do many of her clients who were not happy speaking to me and only wanted the lovely Michelle!
The bad news is that Michelle won’t be able to see her desk for the paperwork when she returns lol.
Gloomy weather in London this week but I’ll be off to California in a couple of weeks’ time and am looking forward to some good sunshine herfing with friends.
Not too much time for herfing this week with Michelle out of the office but did manage to sneak in an office herf last night with my regular smoking chums, Dov, Tim and Nick (you’ll recognize Nick as he’s the ‘face of C.Gars’ and appears on just about every page of the website – handsome devil!). Yes, professional model Nick Shaw is a cigar smoker and one of our chums. 🙂
We spent the late afternoon/evening enjoying cash strength Treasurer single malts from the Robert Graham range. Including Deanston 1994 and Aucroisk 1996. Both whiskies were exceptionally good and matched up with some outrageously good and well matured Partagas SD No. 4 Reserva and Cohiba Seleccion Reserva Robustos. Both cigars have matured to perfection and were delightful smokes. Fair to say a great evening was had by all.
So the subject of this week’s blog is I love Davidoff J, not only do I love the cigars (especially the Nicaraguan range and the Puro D’Oro range) but it’s also such a pleasure working in partnership with Davidoff. Regular clients at our Robert Graham – Cambridge shop will be most impressed to see the new Davidoff walk in humidor that has just been installed as it looks quite breathtakingly beautiful.
Not content to strop there, the jolly nice folks at Davidoff are now in the process of installing some magnificent cigar humidor cabinets at the front of the new and rather huge Robert Graham shop in Glasgow to ensure that we can offer our clients a most comprehensive range of Davidoff cigars.
Apologies to our Inka-Secret Blend clients who have been disappointed that some of their favourite sizes have sold out but don’t worry I have another 50,000 cigars about to land in the UK so all sizes will be back on the shelves as such very soon. We just struggle to keep up with the popularity of this range. Should I be surprised?! Unbelievable value and a superb sweet, rich blend 100% made by hand in Peru.
I’m racing through to our lovely Turmeaus cigar shops in Liverpool and Chester next week and hope to bump in to some of our regular clients whilst there. Looking forward to putting together some great cigar tasting evenings as soon as the weather turns a little milder.
Can’t keep up with the Havana cigar sales these days, popularity of some of the new cigars like H Upmann Connoisseur A, Partagas Gran Reserva and Hoyo Grand Epicure to name a few have overwhelmed us and supply has been very tight. Fear not as our friends at importer Hunters and Frankau tell me they do expect some more stocks to arrive in the near future, we will keep you all posted.
We are expecting (due to popular demand) this year’s Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligans (love the name!)…if you subscribe to the newsletter, you get priority of course. These sold out in days last year……you have been warned!
Have a smokey weekend
