    Our Nicaraguan adventure started in the El Titan De Bronze cigar shop in Miami’s Little Havana.

    James J Fox Visit Cuba
    We thought we'd left the rain far behind in Gatwick, but just caught the tail-end of a heavy downpour which managed to disrupt the opening ceremony of the XIX Habanos Festival. Having cleared passport control and baggage collection in record time, we caught a taxi to our home for the week, a casa situated high above the Malecon with spectacular views, whilst still being a...

    Pairing Cigars and Whisky
    Romeo and Juliet. Morecambe and Wise. Batman and Robin. Wine and Cheese. There are some pairings in life that simply make sense.

    Origin: Cuba Vitola: Sobresaliente Dimensions: 6” x 53 ring gauge Strength: 4 out of 5 Enrobed in an oily Colorado, borderline-Maduro wrapper, this cigar presents a surprising complexity upon first puff. Some brown sugar sweetness toward the surface, but much leather, fresh earth and spice are further present to begin with. All in all, actually very similar to the 80th...
