Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from all of us at the Cigar Smokers Club!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from all of us at the Cigar Smokers Club!

News Back

The past twelve months have been extremely busy but hugely enjoyable for all of us at the Cigar Smokers Club so we would like to thank everyone for their continued support and for making 2011 so much fun.

The year saw yet more increases in the amount of cigar evenings hosted at various clubs, bars, hotels, restaurants and specialist tobacconists across the UK and, judging by the continued proliferation of outstanding Comfortable Outdoor Smoking Areas (COSAs) and cigar stores, next year looks set to be even busier!

The calendar of events, tastings, openings and cigar dinners, not to mention the next cigar roller’s tour, will all be listed on the events section of the site as soon as dates are confirmed.

We have also had the pleasure of welcoming two exceptional Cuban cigar rollers to the UK this year.

Joel Ulacia Diaz and Berta Corzo Thorpe were each here for three months and found time to visit stores in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Gibraltar – rolling somewhere in the region of four thousand cigars between them along the way. They also attended many outdoor events including Royal Windsor Horse Show, Devon County Show, Royal Bath & West Show, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Burghley Horse Trials and Goodwood Revival.

The much anticipated Flor de Cano Short Robusto finally arrived and was officially launched at our annual Summer Cigar Party, held this year at The Langham Hotel. We received two very welcome additions to the standard line of Partagás with the introduction of the Serie E No. 2 and the Serie D No. 5 and H. Upmann also added to their range with the Half Corona, an ideal cigar for when time is pressing. The year also saw some outstanding Limited Edition releases from Cohiba, Hoyo de Monterrey and, for the first time, Ramon Allones. We also expect to receive two UK Regional Editions in the early part of 2012 and the Montecristo No. 2 Gran Reserva.

In 2012 we aim to build on the accomplishments of this year and continue to ensure that our membership is kept up to date with all developments within the Cuban cigar smoking community in the UK.

There are several exciting new COSAs and cigar stores being designed and built around the country so it seems certain that we are set to enjoy an even greater choice of places to visit and enjoy smoking Habanos.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
