Upcoming Events at Lit
We'll be doing a very special RSVP only tasting for 10 people in Lit on Wednesday, April 8th from 6pm-8pm. We're opening a very limited (only 250 produced) and out of production Blender's Box of Alec Bradley Fine & Rare.
The Fine & Rare cigar is a limited edition release that uses 10 different tobaccos, creating a cigar with unmatched complexity. Each member of this tasting will receive one Fine & Rare 2013 cigar along with a special blender's cigar made exclusively of one of the 10 different tobaccos used in the Fine & Rare blend.
By smoking these together, you'll get the unique opportunity to see how one specific tobacco tastes individually and within the cigar blend itself! Also included in this $45 tasting package will be a flight of three single malt Speyside whiskies from The Glenrothes, including the rare and no longer produced 1991 vintage.
We'll be joined by Don Hanes of Alec Bradley, who will be on hand to tell us all about the Fine & Rare cigar and the Blender's Box concept. We'll also have some prizes to give away for those participating. If you wish to attend this exclusive event, please RSVP by responding to this email.
On the following day, Thursday, April 9th from 6-8pm, we'll be doing a free event in Lit featuring all of our Alec Bradley cigars, including the new Coyol and Mundial lines, along with Westland Distillery's locally produced single malt whiskies. Don will return with some great deals on AB cigars, and we'll also be joined by Matt Freerks of Westland, who will be on hand to tell us more about these fantastic whiskies that are putting Washington on the map alongside Scotland and Kentucky, among others, in terms of where the best whiskies are being produced. Westland was recently featured in this great Seattle Times front page feature! We'll have the brand new Westland Sherry Wood just in time for this event as well!

Barrel Aged Imperial Russian Stout!
Our good friends at Georgetown Brewing have taken our specially selected Snoqualmie Woodford Reserve XIV bourbon barrel and aged their Oharov Imperial Russian Stout in it for the past four months, and now it's available for you to try at Lit!
The original version of Oharov was brewed to be true to the style of the 18th century Russian Imperial Stout - loaded with caramel, chocolate and roasted coffee flavors, Oharov's bold aggressiveness quickly finishes smooth, dry, and crisp.
The bourbon barrel aging process gives this brew added complexity with subtle notes of oak, vanilla and caramel, plus some added ABV from any leftover bourbon hiding deep in the barrel!
Come on in and try one while we have it, as this delicious brew will not last long!
