NON CIGAR SMOKER TIPS – For non Cuban Cigar smokers, figuring out what someone likes to smoke can seem confusing. Unless of course, you know what to look out for. Every cigar contains a band bearing its brand’s name. If the person you’re buying for always smokes Bolivar Cigars or Montecristo Cigars etc., it’s worth purchasing a box in those ranges. However, …

"impressive to showcase"
CLASSIC CIGARS FOR EVERY CIGAR AFICIONADO – There are an array of incredibly popular cigars which every enthusiast would love to add to their humidor. If for nothing else, they are collection pieces, and will be very impressive to showcase. The list includes:
Partagas Serie D No. 4 Cigar – A loved Robusto sized, the habano is full-bodied and provides a powerful and strong smoke. It’s ideal for a long-term cigar smoker, and was mentioned by The Lanesborough’s Garden Room Manager Sophian, as being one of the most requested.
Romeo Y Julieta Wide Churchills Cigar – Named after Winston Churchill who was known as a Romeo Y Julieta fan, these cigars contain a heavy 55 ring gauge, with an 130mm length. Notes of leather and tannin combine, in this rich, opulent Cuban cigar. For those wanting something smaller, there is the classic Romeo Y Julieta Churchills, and the Romeo Y Julieta Petit Robustos.
Montecristo No. 2 Cigar – Bursting with flavour, the Montecristo No. 2 Cigar is exquisitely balanced and provides a palate of spice, cinnamon and wood aromas. Cigar connoisseurs typically define the cigar as being one of the finest. From the same collection, the Montecristo No. 4 Cigar is the world’s best-selling. When we discussed The Art Between a Creative and Their Cuban Cigar, we mentioned that Michael Jordon, Michael Douglas and Demi Moore, all love the Montecristo No. 2 Cigar.
Cohiba Robustos Cigar – We had to name at least one Cohiba. The cigar is renowned worldwide for it’s spectacular blend and is incredibly sought-after. Considered iconic since its release in 1989. The medium to full blend is suitable for both new and expert cigar smokers.

"extra touch of speciality"
FOR A TRULY LUXURIOUS INDULGENCE – Limited Edition Cigars add an extra touch of speciality. They are incredibly rare because the cigars are crafted in unique sizes and are only produced for a year. The tobacco from them is aged for a minimum of two years, and this creates a magnificent dark colour. All Limited Edition Cigars are presented in the finest boxes, with extra cigar bands dating the year that they were produced. We have carefully chosen what we consider the best, such as the Cohiba Talisman Limited Edition 2017. Due to additional fermentation, the cigar is extra smooth and has pristine construction. The ring gauge is on the larger scale at 54, however, this is now a preference for the majority of cigar smokers.
Another must mention is the Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 Reserva Cosecha 2012 Cigar. Fantastic for every cigar smoker, the lavish piece is deliciously aromatic and highly desired, with a mere 5,000 boxes produced and available to buy in the world – which has of course decreased since its arrival. The depths of flavour combined in the cigar, has made it a favourite amongst many cigar sommeliers. We had the pleasure of enjoying at Corinthia Hotel London’s Garden Lounge. Along with Limited Edition, Regional Edition Cigars are limited and sold exclusively to one region for an initial 12 months. Gifting a box of cigars belonging to the region where a person lives or perhaps loves to travel, is a wonderful gesture.
