We're less than a week away from our Lit Summer BBQ, featuring Black Raven Brewery and La Gloria Cubana Serie R cigars. For more information or to get tickets, use this link.
On Thursday, July 25 in Lit from 6-9pm, we'll be joined by Rob Birsinger of Rocky Patel as we feature their extremely popular and great tasting blends, along with a special whiskey promotion. To make way for some exciting new bourbons, we're blowing out 5 premium whiskies at only $5 each during this event! We hope to see you there!
Terra Vista is holding a winemaker dinner with Spring Valley Vineyard's Serge Laville. Here is a link to our website with more information.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, August 6th from 6-9 pm as we hold our final outdoor event of the Summer. It will be a great one! We'll be joined by Janny Garcia and Pete Johnson, creators of the La Dueña cigar as we feature this great blend along with My Father's newest cigar El Centurion. It's a free event, and we'll keep you posted as this date grows closer.
New In Our Humidor
As you receive this email, we'll be attending the annual IPCPR convention, where all the exciting new releases for 2013 will be unveiled. We plan to get as many of them as possible into our humidor for you to enjoy!
Until then, here's what's new at the moment:
- Rocky Patel Private Cellar - a delicious and complex blend featuring an aged Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, we have this cigar in the toro size just in time for our event on July 25. Here's a blog review from CigarCoop.
- La Dueña Toro Gordo and Petit Lancero - La Dueña is a cigar that we've carried for a while in the Robusto size, but with the lovely Janny Garcia coming to visit us, we've added two new sizes for our event August 6. Also wrapped in Connecticut Broadleaf, this cigar is rich and flavorful, not for amateur smokers! The Toro Gordo is box-pressed and measures 6x56. The Petit Lancero measures 6x42. It's really interesting to smoke these back to back and see how much the different ring gauge affects the flavor. On a side note, Janny's visit to Snoqualmie Casino in August will be her first, but will mark the fourth visit from a member of the Garcia family in our five years. Father Jose "Pepin" Garcia visited twice and brother Jaime was here earlier this Summer.We're proud to have such a great relationship with one of the premier cigar making families in the world!
- El Centurion is the latest release from My Father, which we'll also be featuring during our event August 6th, but you can try it now! Building on the success of the #1 Cigar in the World, the Flor de las Antillas, the Garcia family have produced another Nicaraguan Puro wrapped in a dark Sun Grown wrapper. Here is some more information about this cigar and the history of the El Centurion brand from halfwheel.
Be sure to pick these great smokes up on your next visit and keep a lookout for more new cigars as we return from IPCPR!
