EGM Business Trip: Hong Kong
This week EGM Cigars are on a very exciting business trip in Hong Kong. We will be viewing some of the world’s largest cigar collections on on the lookout for rare and vintage stock to list online. On this visit, we will also be visiting some of the most prestigious cigar shops and cigar divans and we will be sharing our views on them with our readers.
So why Hong Kong?
Hong Kong has been creating a commotion in the cigar industry for years. With an incredible and ever-growing group of Cigar Aficionados, such as the likes of Peter Lam and Howard Yeung, all of whom smoke only the best and rarest Cuban Cigars in the industry, we are sure that Hong Kong will leave us inspired; with both our minds and cigars ignited. Hong Kong is renowned for its citizen’s enjoying the finer things in life, "Like with food and wine, Hong Kong connoisseurs always opt for the highest quality and best producers. Cigars are no exception" said Thomas Bohrer, owner of Habanos Rare Wine and Cigars. Therefore, you can only expect that the cigar collections in Hong Kong contain only the finest cigars.
James Suckling, expert cigar critic and former European Editor of Cigar Aficionado, calls Hong Kong the ‘new Geneva for cigars’ and it’s obvious why. The critic illuminates Hong Kong’s excellent selection of cigar shops and cigar lounges, believing them to be some of the very best in the world and recounts tales of real estate tycoons and entrepreneurs who have expansive walk in humidors filled with the cigars that are scarce to find nowadays.
