For those of you who've come out to Lit to watch the Seahawks, you know why we're excited for another season to start. As we've done the past two years, we'll be giving away prizes each and every time the Seahawks score all season long!
We're kicking things off with a special event on Sunday, September 9th. We'll be featuring Brickhouse cigars, including the brand new 6x60 Mighty Mighty Maduro, along with Glenrothes and Glen Grant single malt scotches.
The game starts at 1pm, but our specials will go on all day. We'll have Buy 3 Get 1 Free on Brickhouse. For those who buy 10 sticks or more, we'll give you a free membership certificate to the JC Newman Cigar Connoisseur's Club - good for a t-shirt and a 4 cigar sampler of their cigars.
Glen Grant Single Malt will be only $6, while Glenrothes Select Reserve will be $7.50 all day long.
We hope you join us on Sunday, either to watch the Seahawks at 1pm, or later as we show the Sunday night game between the Steelers and Broncos.
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 Jesus Fuego. Jesus is one of the bright young talents in the cigar world.
He first drew the attention of the industry as Rocky Patel's master blender during a period where Rocky was producing some exciting and interesting cigars such as the Vintage 1990 and 1992, RP Sun Grown and the Olde World Reserve. After leaving Rocky Patel in 2006, Jesus started his own company and has produced some exceptional cigars, including the HC Habano Colorado that Jesus blended for Xikar, which made Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 best cigars of 2009.
At the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival, we'll be featuring two blends from J. Fuego: The Origen Maduro and the Sangre de Toro.
Both of these are full bodied blends. The Origen Maduro is a complex cigar made with a blend of Corojo, Criollo and Mexican San Andres, wrapped in a silky Brazilian Matafina wrapper.
The Sangre de Toro is a spicy Nicaraguan puro, with a Sun Grown Corojo wrapper and filler blend of Criollo and Corojo tobaccos.
Of course no discussion of Jesus Fuego would be complete without mention of the Originals. J. Fuego Originals come in every blend, and are sold as 5 ugly Corona sized cigars in a paper wrapped pack.
The good folks at Halfwheel explain the Original really well in this review of the Origen Original, which we've carried at Lit for a few years now.
Meet Jesus Fuego 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.
