New in Our Humidor/ Upcoming Events
We've received another wave of new releases from this year's IPCPR trade show. Here's what you are missing if you haven't been in for a while:
Montecristo Epic - The latest release from Montecristo is here! It's a limited release cigar, produced by a special team of Montecristo's most skilled and accomplished cigar makers. The Epic is a medium to full bodied cigar wrapped in a spicy Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, with all the tobacco selected from the vintage crop of 1997. Each cigar is hand inspected and every box includes a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artisans at every step.
J. Fuego Sangre de Toro & Origen Maduro - Jesus Fuego will be one of our guests of honor at the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival, and these are two of his best and latest blends. The Sangre de Toro is a spicy Nicaraguan puro comprised of Corojo and Criollo seed tobacco. The Origen Maduro is a rich, complex blend of Nicaraguan, San Andres, and Honduran tobacco wrapped in a silky Brazilian Matafina maduro wrapper.
EP Carrillo Inch- Fans of big ring guage cigars will love this 64 ring guage blend from the "Godfather of Boutique Cigars." It's a bit fuller bodied than the EPC core line and limited in production.
HC Habano2-Called Habano Squared, this new box pressed beauty is produced in Nicaragua for Xikar by AJ Fernandez. It's affordable, powerful and complex. One of my favorite new releases of the year!
Join us on Monday, September 24th from 5-9pm as we feature the Jack Daniels family of brands along with Partagas 1845 cigars.
We'll be showing the Seahawks' appearance on Monday Night Football and will be joined by the Jack Daniels girls! Enjoy great specials on all Jack Daniels products as well as deals on Partagas' newest blend, the medium bodied, full flavored 1845.
We'll have prizes to give away all evening long and did I mention Jack Daniels girls? See you there!
WCSF Vendor Spotlight
Over the next six weeks as we countdown to the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival, we're going to highlight some of the specific vendors and products that we'll be featuring during the event.
This week, it's artist Tony Vinella. Tony is a cigar aficionado and a painter who works in the 19th century Impressionistic style. Vinella's paintings are painstakingly built using layer upon layer of oil paint to create depth and complexity. Each layer must be dried before the next is applied, giving the colors the luminous quality that the Impressionist were known for.
We'll be giving every ticketholder to the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival a raffle ticket to win a custom cigar-themed Tony Vinella painting, valued at $2500!
Meet Tony Vinella at the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival. Tickets are now on sale via Ticketmaster and at the Casino Box Office. For more information on this event, click here to visit the WCSF page on the casino website with all of our vendors and details.
