Dougray Scott on receiving the award for Cigar Smoker of The Year said  “Thank you so much Boisdale for this award. You can keep your Emmy’s and your Bafta’s… I love cigars. Me and cigars go back a long way. They’re synonymous with everything that’s wonderful in life, relaxing and contemplative. Quite often when I’m at home with my wife I’ll say sweetheart open up the humidor, I’ll spark up and think about all the wonderful things that have happened that day.”

The evening has long established itself as a cornerstone of the UK cigar calendar. Congratulations to Ranald and his team for making it such a fun and  convivial event. Long may it continue.
