Upcoming Events at Lit
There are a handful of spots left for our RSVP only Hennessy and Diamond Crown tasting, tomorrow June 11 from 6-8pm.
For $25, you'll receive a flight of Hennessy Cognac, with the VS, VSOP and XO expressions paired with a Diamond Crown Maximus #4 cigar.
We'll be joined by a very special guest, Wayne Chang, the global brand ambassador for Hennessy. Wayne has worked at all four major Cognac houses and is a wealth of knowledge on the subject.

On Tuesday, June 25th from 6-9pm, we're featuring EP Carrillo cigars along with Crown Royal Whisky. We'll be joined by Terry Coleman from EP Carrillo and Master of Whisky Breck Taylor with Crown Royal.
EP Carrillo cigars are produced in the Dominican Republic by cigarmaking legend Ernesto Perez-Carrillo and his family. Ernesto is most famous for the El Credito Cigar Factory he founded in the 1980's in Miami which produced La Gloria Cubana, but this new boutique line of cigars bearing his name has brought him even more acclaim, including three Cigar Aficionado Top 25 rankings, #22 in 2012, #14 in 2011, and #8 in 2010.
Join us for some great deals on cigars and whisky along with our usual bevy of prize giveaways.
New in Our Humidor
Here's a look at what's new to smoke at Lit!
- - Undercrown by Drew Estate: This cigar has been heavily requested and is now in stock, a great medium to full bodied Nicaraguan cigar wrapped in an oily San Andres Maduro wrapper. The story behind Undercrown is a good one - here's a review from Cigar Chick who explains it very well in the video.
- - Aging Room M356: I've been wanting to add this cigar for quite a while. The Aging Room is a Dominican Puro with nice, spicy medium bodied profile. It's a small batch limited production cigar, so enjoy them while they last! Here's the writeup from Cigar Aficionado's Top 25, where the M356 was ranked #16 in 2011.
- - Saint Luis Rey Gen 2: The Gen 2 is an extremely flavorful and affordable smoke that is new to the market. If you have enjoyed Altadis USA's other recent releases such as the H. Upmann Legacy, Romeo and Montecristo Epic, you should definitely give the Gen 2 a try. Here's a review to pique your interest.
- - CAO Hurricane: Some of you may remember a promotion that CAO ran a while back where they gave out three cigars, each marked with C, A or O on the band. Consumers were asked to go online and vote for their favorite blend. The O cigar turned out to be the winner, and this blend has been released as CAO Hurricane, a limited edition cigar for the Summer. We'll be receiving a small amount this week. Our friends at Cigar King did a nice review with some pictures of the Hurricane's excellent packaging.
