Special event this Friday @ Rain City Cigar

Friday, August 21st, 2015 

from 3-6 pm


Rain City Cigar

in Beautiful Downtown Georgetown


Never heard of Curivari you say?
Well we're going to change that!

Small, but mighty. That about sums up this extraordinary brand out of Nicaragua. Rather than trying to grow the business as far and as wide as possible, they've chosen to take special care of a very select number of accounts, and we're so proud to be one of them! We think that once you try these beautiful cigars, you'll be glad we are as well.

Curivari has only been available in the U.S. since 2010 and has garnered quite the dedicated fan base, including the fine folks at Cigar Aficionado! Click here to read their Top 25 review of the Curivari Buenaventura.

As for their much acclaimed Achilles line, Cigar Aficionado has this to say. "A hearty foundation of earth and coffee underscore complex layers of cinnamon, nutmeg, and gingerbread. Rich and delicious without overpowering the palate."

You know you want one.


Curivari comes packaged in 10 count boxes, so our usual 15% discount for boxes of 20 will be offered on full or mixed boxes of just 10 cigars during this event.

In addition, when you buy a 10 count box, you'll receive three additional Curivari cigars FREE!

Don't want a whole box? Never fear..
We're also offering a Buy 4/Get 1 special!

We hope you'll join us for this very special offering of this very special brand!

~ Rain City Cigar Curivari Day Discounts ~

  • - 5% off 1-4 Curivari Cigars!
  • - 10% off 5-9 Curivari Cigars!!
  • - 15% off (full or mixed) boxes of 10 or more!!!

It's been HOT, HOT, HOT!!
Beverages are on Joe!

We will have the "25 Foot Cigar Lounge" up and running so that you can enjoy your cigars in comfort come rain or shine! (who are we kidding, it's going to SHINE).

Can't make it Friday? No worries, we'll continue the specials on Saturday,
while supplies last.

Hope to see you here!  ~Your friends at Rain City Cigar

Meet Cigar Icon Nestor Miranda at Lit!

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Upcoming Events at Lit

Join us on Thursday, August 20 from 7-9pm for a special occasion - We'll have cigar icon Nestor Miranda visiting the lounge!
Nestor has been in the premium cigar industry for over 25 years, and has some great stories to tell. Originally from Holguin, Cuba, Nestor spent his younger days in the liquor industry building the Chivas Regal brand to prominence before founding Miami Cigar & Co. in 1989.
We thought it would be appropriate to feature Chivas Regal during Nestor's visit.
Meet Nestor and enjoy special event deals on the Nestor Miranda Collection and La Aurora cigars, along with drink specials on Chivas Regal. We hope to see you for this fantastic evening!
We've been running our Tuesday Cigar Wars promo for a few months now and the reaction has been overwhelming! Guests are loving the opportunity to smoke cigars without knowing the brand and challenge their preconceptions! In fact, the early front runner is a cigar that many of our guests have looked over for some time, the ROMEO by Romeo y Julieta.
Of course, there's still plenty of time and several more cigars left to include in the competition! Join us for Cigar Wars every Tuesday - a blind tasting and cocktail for only $10. You can then rate that cigar and have a say as to which cigar will be named the Cigar Wars champion - the cigar that Lit customers have chosen as the best tasting cigar in the Lit humidor!
Terra Vista is continuing its Wine With A View series every Thursday in August from 4-6pm on the Terra Vista deck. This week enjoy wines from Michael David Winery along with appetizers with the best views in the area for only $20!
We announced earlier that Lit will be opening at 11am everyday to better accommodate our guests who visit earlier in the day. However, this change will not be implemented until September 1. Thank you for your patience!

New in Our Humidor

This is the time of year when all of the new releases unveiled at the IPCPR convention begin to arrive in our humidor. Here's what's new this week!
Quesada Reserva Privada - This is a special release with only 60 cigars per month allocated to Lit. They've been selling incredibly fast! Featuring 18 year old filler tobacco sand a Connecticut Shade wrapper from Ecuador. It's one of the most complex and well built medium bodied cigars we carry and will be in high demand due to their rarity!
El Centurion H2KCT - The Garcia family of My Father Cigars have released a line extension of the El Centurion brand using a special hybrid wrapper never before seen. Using Cuban Habano 2000 seeds,Jaime and Jose "Pepin" Garcia cultivated the sun grown wrapper leaf in the Connecticut River Valley, creating a flavor profile that medium bodied, but full in flavor with notes of pepper and cream that will appeal to lovers of both Connecticut and Sun Grown wrapped cigars.
Undercrown CT Shade - Drew Estate's new release was one of the biggest hits of the IPCPR. It's an extension of the popular Undercrown line, which originally sported a San Andres Maduro wrapper. The new Undercrown CT Shade uses an Ecuadorian grown Connecticut Shade wrapper giving it a milder creamier flavor that is lush and rich enough to be smoked any time of day.
- Henry Clay - In anticipation of the upcoming release of Pete Johnson's collaboration with Altadis USA on a new Henry Clay Tattoo cigar, we've brought in the original Henry Clay, a classic blend that has been on the market since the 1840's. It features a delicious Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that has a unique minerality and a medium to full bodied profile with notes of hay and black pepper.We often get obsessed with what's new, it's good to revisit a cigar that has stood the test of time, and Henry Clay is one of them. It's one of the classic blends that helped inspire the new wave of cigar makers to get into the industry and well worth checking out!
Happy Smoking!

We have great news! We will now be opening at 11:00 a.m. seven days a week for your convenience. Whether you need to swing in to grab a few cigars or want to join us in the lounge for a lunchtime smoke, we'll be waiting!

If you haven't visited us on Tuesday nights for Cigar Wars, you are missing out! Each Tuesday, join us for a blind tasting and cocktail for only $10. It's an opportunity to challenge your preconceptions about cigars that you may not have otherwise tried and enjoy the best deal of the week on a cigar and drink!

You can then rate that cigar and have a say as to which cigar will be named the Cigar Wars champion - the cigar that Lit customers have chosen as the best tasting cigar in the Lit humidor!

Terra Vista will be holding a special wine tasting event, Wine With A View, each Thursday in August on the Terra Vista deck from 4-6pm. The tasting is $20 and includes (4) 2 oz. wine samples along with appetizers. Each Thursday will have a different theme:

New In Our Humidor

This is the season when most of the new cigar releases begin hitting the shelves. Here's are some fresh selections to try the next time you're in!

  • - My Father Limited Edition 2015 - This is the first time since 2012 that the Garcia family has released a limited edition under the My Father brand. It features a beautiful Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that the family calls "Rosado Oscuro" along with rare aged filler tobaccos that are saved especially for these limited releases. At $24, it's a great treat for a celebration or the perfect gift for that aficionado that demands only the best.
  • - Enclave by AJ Fernandez - Following the success of last year's New World, named the cigar of the year by Cigar Journal, AJ has once again released another delicious, yet affordable blend. Enclave is a complex, medium bodied cigar using Ecuadorian, Cameroon and Nicaraguan tobaccos.
  • - Casa Magna D Magnus Caligula - We've carried the D Magnus line in the past, but the Caligula size is an all new box pressed perfecto with both ends capped. It's the strongest cigar in the line and for fans of full bodied, yet complex cigars, it's worth checking out!

  • - Quesada 40th Anniversary - Released in 2014 to honor Manuel Quesada's 40 years in the business, the Q40 is a balanced yet full bodied cigar with rich flavors of leather and spice and a subtle sweetness from its dark San Andres wrapper.

Happy Smoking!
