Spotlight: 20th Habanos Festival

Spotlight: 20th Habanos Festival

We at EGM Cigars are very much looking forward to attending the 20th Habanos Festival in Cuba next month.

 

The event has been set to take place from February 26TH to March the 2nd, 2018 and its attendees have been promised an expansive array of activities associated with Habanos, S.A.  

 

We are excited to see what some of our favourite brands Cohiba and Partagas have to offer in their leading role at the 20th Edition and are eager to expand upon on our already extensive knowledge of the Habanos S A world. We are also highly anticipating Cohiba’s Gran Reserva 2014 presentation of the Cohiba Robusto, as every one is keen to get their hands on this very collectible item. 

 

Over the years, the famous festival has grown tremendously, but many of the original initiatives still take place, such as:

 

  • Visits to the Vuelta Abajo tobacco plantations
  • Tours to the most famous Habanos factories
  • Lectures and practical sessions within the International Seminar; the ‘Alianza Habanos’
  • The international Habanosommelier contest

 

Habanos SA has announced that this year, in addition to these amazing activities, the Habanos World Challenge Contest will also take place. This is the first time it will have been held and we can not wait to see which country wins!  

Habanos S.A promises to close this world famous event on the 2nd of March with an ‘evening full of glamour, exclusivity and love for the Habanos’ and we can not wait. Hopefully see some of you there!
