The Big Christmas Cigar Evening
This is the one, our big pre-Christmas cigar event, which will be held at Alto in the Cornerhouse in Nottingham City Centre and will commence at 7 pm. This event is always extremely well attended so numbers will be capped. As this is our last cigar event of 2019, we are going out in style and are going for 2 quite big format cigars. The two featured producers are Balmoral Cigars from Nicaragua and La Flor Dominicana from the Dominican Republic.
Balmoral featured on one of our first tastings of the year with their Anejo XO Masivo, so it felt right that we should have another of their stunning cigars. Using primarily aged tobaccos for their cigar production, the Balmoral style is one of elegance and maturity. For this event, I have opted to taste the Balmoral Gran Perfecto FT Edicion Limitada 2018 (rrp £24.95) of which there are only 100 boxes are available for the whole of the UK! Measuring 5 x 60 this is a big cigar, but one which smokes quite elegantly.
Our second featured producer is La Flor Dominicana from the Dominican Republic. Owned by Litto Gomez, who is an award-winning producer who won the coveted 'Cigar Of The Year' trophy in 2017 for the 'Andalusian Bull' (rrp £31.43). Well, we couldn't try the Bull at the time as demand had far outstripped supply. Two years downline and the situation hasn't changed that much, however, I have managed to source some extra stock so we will finally be tasting the 'Bull' at this cigar evening!
Due to lack of availability of the cigars, numbers of attendees for this evening will be capped at 45
I look forward to seeing you on the night.
