The Ramon Allones Petit Belicoso (UK Regional Edition for 2012) won the award for “Cigar Of The Year” at the 2nd Spectator Cigar Awards Dinner, held at Boisdale Canary Wharf on Sunday 16th November. The Cuban cigar scooped the top award on a night that included fine food, fine drinks, seven awards, live music, celebrities and, of course cigars.
Guests were invited to arrive for a champagne reception on Boisdale’s magnificent cigar terrace for a cigar and a glass or two of refreshment before dinner began and the serious business of handing out awards started in earnest.
Then, with the great and the good of the cigar world having enjoyed some outstanding British cuisine, Tom Parker Bowles and Ranald Macdonald (co-hosts for the evening) called order and began proceedings. The following winners were announced;
