Cigar and Rum Tasting at the Bluebird, Chelsea.
We are delighted to invite you to an evening of Cigar and Rum tasting in the courtyard of the Bluebird Restaurant in Chelsea, London, on the evening of Monday 20th July.
A rum cocktail will greet you on arrival before a total of Four different rums will be available to taste along with a cigar, the Partagas Serie P No. 2, to be presented by Simon Chase of Hunters & Frankau.
Light snacks will be served throughout and Galler chocolate will be paired with the rums. Armando Risoto, the Cigar Roller from the Partagas factory in Havana who is currently doing a short tour of the UK, will be demonstrating his rolling skills at the event.
The four rums to accompany the Cigar include:
- Chairman’ Reserve – St Lucia – This rum is a blend of double distilled pot still and continuous still rums. The pot still richness comes through on the nose along with juicy fruits and a hint of honey. The palate is medium bodied with a soft feel, a hint of vanilla and spices.
- Elements 8 Gold – St Lucia – A new rum brand of excellent quality which has a honeyed sweetness and dark, dried fruit flavour. Produced by the Elements 8 Rum Company Ltd using St Lucian rum and aged for 6 years in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels.
- Trois Rivieres 8yo – Martinique – An elegant medium-weighted rhum with intricate layers of tropical fruit, ginger and ground pepper flavours.
- Diplomatica Riserva Exclusiva – Venezuela – A fabulous Venezuelan dark golden rum, distilled from molasses in a copper potstill before 12 years of ageing. Rich, sweet and fruity. Fantastic quality for the money, Diplomatico was awarded a Gold Medal at the 2007 Ministry of Rum Tasting Competition.
