Quai D'Orsay

Quai D'Orsay "SENADORES" The Last of the 2019 Habanos Limited Edition RELEASED !


London, England, 24th, October 2020.


Quai d'Orsay was created in the 1970s for the French market. The name comes from the avenue in Paris where the headquarters of SEITA was located, the former state-owned French tobacco giant.


In 2017 the brand received a total make-over which included the introduction of two new sizes (No.50 & No.54) and stylish new packaging with re-designed eye-catching cigar bands. Perhaps partly as a reflection of how well the modernisation was accepted, the brand was selected for the very first time to be part of the Habanos Limited Edition family and in 2019 the Quai D'Orsay Senadores was showcased to a global cigar audience, although arriving for sale a year later in 2020.


The Senadores are a classic Hermoso No.2 size measuring 6 1/8" (157mm) x 48 ring gauge and are presented in Special Presentation Boxes (SPB's) of 25 cigars. They join the Montecristo Supremos and Ramon Allones Allones No.2 to complete the 2019 Habanos Limited Edition range.


Commercial Name: Senadores

Factory Name: Hermoso No2

Dimensions: 6 1/8" (157 mm) x 48 ring gauge

Flavour category: Smooth Flavour

Production method: Totally handmade using long filler with all leaves sourced from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba

Presentations: In Special Presentation Box of 25 cigars

PARTAGAS 'CAPITOLS' in a 1970s Retro presentation Tin.

PARTAGAS 'CAPITOLS' in a 1970s Retro presentation Tin.


London, England, 21st, September 2020.


Partagas Capitols are the latest addition to the new Linea Retro Series joining the Romeo y Julieta Club Kings which were released earlier in the year.


Like the Club Kings, the Capitols are Mareva sized cigars (5 1/8" (129mm) x 42 ring gauge) and are presented in a 1970s retro tin with a pressure pop-up lid. The design and style of the tin was inspired by the pocket cigar cases that were much in vogue during that decade and includes retro branding which many today associate with the iconic sign that hangs outside the world famous factory in Havana. Each tin holds 5 cigars and can be presented directly for sale in their retro wooden box which is a throw-back to the 1970's, with fold-down front lid.


The Capitols have all of the character and full-bodied intensity for which the brand is famed and have been made using a careful selection of leaves drawn from the finest plantation in the Vuelta Abajo area of Pinar del Río, Cuba. They have also been rolled totally by hand, using long filler tobacco leaves, or "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga" as they say in Havana.


Commercial Name: Capitol

Factory Name: Mareva

Dimensions: 5 1/8" (129 mm) x 42 ring gauge

Flavour category: Full

Colibri SV-Cut Cigar Cutters.  Two-in-one V-Cut and Straight Cut

Colibri SV-Cut Cigar Cutters.

Two-in-one V-Cut and Straight Cut


London, England, 30th, September 2020.


The SV-Cut Cigar Cutter is a two-in-one combination of the insanely popular Colibri V-Cut and S-Cut cigar cutters.


The SV-Cut conveniently combines the V-Cut and S-Cut into one amazing cigar cutter without giving up any functionality or ease of use. The V-side of the SV-Cut uses the same blade as the original V-Cut and provides the identical clean "V". The depth of the "V" is easily regulated by holding the cigar head a bit further out-so cutting a smaller wedge out of lanceros or figurados is just as easy.


On the S-side (straight cut), the aperture is slightly larger and could accommodate up to a 68-70-ring cigar. The cut is governed to 3mm.

The trigger release for both blades is located on the V-side. The ergonomic shape and spring-loaded blades make cutting with either side almost as much of a pleasure as smoking the cigar itself. Both sides of the body are textured with a pachmayr pattern for a sure grip.


Description:

- Spring-loaded release

- S-Cut cigar cutters & V-shaped cutter

- Ergonomic design

- Stainless steel blade

- Gift box included

- Two-year warranty

RAMON ALLONES ALLONES NO.2  LE 2019

RAMON ALLONES ALLONES NO.2 LE 2019

WORLD LAUNCH !

Wednesday 19th August 2020, 6:30pm GMT




London, England, 15, August 2020.


Hunters & Frankau is delighted to confirm that the United Kingdom has been selected by Habanos SA to host the world launch of the Ramón Allones Allones No.2 Limited Edition 2019.

Commercial Name: Allones No.2 Factory Name: Campana Dimensions: 5 ½” (140 mm) x 52 ring gauge Presentations: Special Presentation Box (SPB) of 10 cigars

Unable to host a launch party in the usual fashion, Hunters & Frankau has decided to try something new. They have offered their key Specialist Retail and Hospitality accounts the opportunity to host their very own virtual launch in smaller, more intimate tastings sessions with their clients.

The goal is for simultaneous virtual launches to take place across the country at precisely 6:30pm on Wednesday 19th August. Subject to government guidelines at the time, and the layout of individual venues, it may be possible for some to conduct their launch ‘in person’ at their venues.

Tasting packs containing everything required for the evening will be provided by Hunters & Frankau to venue/account hosting a launch, the evening will commence with each venue showing a video of Jemma Freeman (Executive Chairman of Hunters & Frankau) and José Antonio Cejas Diaz (Hunters & Frankau Corporate Director) introducing the Ramón Allones Allones No.2.

At this point guests will be invited to light up their cigar and pour their Hine Cigar Reserve Cognac.

Another short film will immediately follow including interviews with key members of the Cuban cigar industry as well as footage of the cigars being rolled in Cuba.

The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 is just the third ever Limited Edition produced by the brand and is a classic Campana size – 5½” (140mm) x 52 ring gauge. The cigars are housed in Special Presentation Boxes (SPB’s) of ten cigars.

The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 will look familiar to some UK Havana smokers as it is the same size and brand Hunters & Frankau selected in 2005 for their first ever Habanos Regional Edition.

The Ramón Allones Allones No.2 is the second of the 2019 Limited Editions to arrive, following the Montecristo Supremos. The Quai D’Orsay Senadores is expected to arrive later in the year.


Commercial Name: Allones No.2

Factory Name: Campana

Dimensions: 5 ½" (140 mm) x 52 ring gauge

Flavour category: Full

Production method: Totally handmade using long filler with all leaves sourced from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba

Presentations: Special Presentation Box (SPB) of 10 cigars

A J Fernandez Bellas Artes  'Robusto Maduro' 2019 #1 CIGAR of the YEAR

A J Fernandez Bellas Artes 'Robusto Maduro' 2019 #1 CIGAR of the YEAR


London, England, 19, February 2020.


In 2016, A.J. Fernandez introduced the Bellas Artes series in the United States. The Maduro line followed two years later, and for roughly one year has also been available in Europe and Asia. The combination of a Brazilian Mata Fina wrapper and a Mexican San Andrés binder is rather unusual, but is clearly highly appreciated and gives the cigar a unique selling point. It is said that Abdel Fernandez's inspiration for this series came from visits to the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Havana.


The Bellas Artes Maduro series encompasses four vitolas: alongside the Robusto, the Toro, Gordo and Short Churchill formats are available. In addition, a special edition was recently released in the Lancero format.



Owner: A.J. Fernandez Cigars

Factory: Tabacalera A.J. Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.

Origin: Nicaragua

Wrapper: Brazil

Binder: Mexico

Filler: Nicaragua

Strength: 9 (of 10)

Size: 5½ (140mm) x 52 ring gauge

Released: 2018







Tasting notes:

Right from the start, this perfect cigar (not only visually) is expressive. It offers the scent of bread, spices, cacao sweetness; nutty, woody and leathery aromas. The intense aromas are carried by a gentle saltiness, pepper and acidity. Strength, harmony, excitement …

The 'Esmeralda' New Adition to the Trinidad Brand

The 'Esmeralda' New Adition to the Trinidad Brand


London, England, 8, February 2020.


Following Habanos S.A’s announcement at the 21st Festival del Habanos in 2019 of three new vitolas destined to join the standard range of the stylish Trinidad brand (Topes, Media Luna & Esmeralda), the Esmeralda is the last of the three to finally arrive in the UK.


The name Trinidad is a tribute to the settlement called Santísima Trinidad on the southern coast of Cuba, which was built in the 16th century and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The origins of Trinidad as a Habanos brand date back to 1969, and for many years, much like the Cohiba brand, it was used exclusively as a gift from the Cuban State to senior dignitaries from overseas. Later, in 1998, this brand was made available to smokers all over the world, but even then in very limited quantities.


The Esmeralda, measuring 5 ¾” (145 mm) x 53 ring gauge is named after one of Trinidad’s most famous streets and as with previous vitolas is presented in the brand's classic Semi Boîte Nature (SBN) varnished box containing 12 cigars.


The Trinidad Esmeralda, Media Luna and Topes all follow on from the successful launch of the Trinidad Vigia in 2014 and a new and sophisticated option for smokers who prefer heavy ring gauges in a shorter format.


This new cigar has been rolled to Trinidad's classic blend of medium strength and creamy aromatic smoke. It has been made "Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga"- Totally Handmade with Long Filler after a careful selection of filler, binder and wrapper leaves from the best tobacco-growing plantation in the Vuelta Abajo area in Pinar del Río province, Cuba.

Latest Release from Partagas 'MADURO No2'

Latest Release from Partagas 'MADURO No2'


London, England, 22, January 2020.


The Partagas Maduro No.2 joins the No.1 and No.3 to complete the Linea Maduro range. The concept was launched in 2015 with the Maduro No.1 quickly becoming a firm favourite amongst Partagas devotees. Due to overwhelming demand, a further two sizes were announced and these were unsurprisingly to be called Maduro No. 2 and Maduro No.3. The latter was released to much acclaim in the UK last year and the former is now ready to join its counterparts.


Measuring 4¾” (120mm) x 55, the Maduro No.2 has the distinction of being the only figurado (tapered at one end) within the series. It is presented in unvarnished SBN boxes of 25 cigars and is dressed with a second band carrying the name of the vitola (size).


Maduro describes a very dark shade of wrapper leaf. The leaves are harvested from the top of the shade grown tobacco plant and after air curing, natural fermentation and ageing, assume their rich, dark, oily appearance which adds a “top-taste” to the blend which many describe as sweet. Dedicating Maduro wrappers to a vitola is not a totally new concept for Habanos s.a. In 2007 they launched the Cohiba Maduro 5 range in three sizes.

Presented in SBN boxes each containing 10 cigars measuring 5” (127mm) x 50 ring gauge, this size is known as a Petit Piramide in the factories of Cuba and not found in any other brand within the Habanos regular portfolio.


In keeping with the tradition of the San Cristóbal brand to name its vitolas after iconic landmarks in Cuba, El Prado pays tribute to a very famous street in the city of Havana.


The unique size serves up all of the classic, well balanced light to medium bodied aromas that has helped make the brand such a favourite among aficionados since it was launched 20 years ago in 1999.

The Partagas Linea Maduro concept was launched in 2015 with the Maduro No.1 which quickly became a firm favourite amongst Partagas devotees. As a result, a further two sizes were announced to complete the range and delight the cigar world.


These were unsurprisingly to be called Maduro No. 2 and Maduro No.3 with the latter now ready for launch in the UK.


Partagas Maduro No.3 is presented in unvarnished SBN boxes of 25 parejo (stright sided) cigars, measure 5¾" x 50 and are dressed with a second identifying band carrying the name of the vitola (size).


Maduro describes a very dark shade of wrapper leaf.

VEGUEROS 'CENTROFINOS' AVAILABLE IN UK


London, England, 09, August 2019.


Introducing a new vitolafor the Vegueros portfolio ‘Centrofinos’5?” (130mm) x 50.

Originally introduced to the market in 1996 as a full bodied brand, Vegueros was a tribute to the countless generations of men and women that have cultivated tobacco in the world famous plantations of Pinar del Rio.


The brand was relaunched in 2013 with a slightly lighter medium-bodied blend in new sizes and presented in unique tins of 16 cigars. Since then packs of 4 cigars have also been introduced.

Vegueros translates into English as ‘Farmers’ and these cigars have happily maintained their rustic edge. The names of each of the new vitolashave also taken inspiration from the Cuban farmers’ vocabulary and the “Centrofinos” is no exception. Centro Fino is a classification for the leaves of the sun grown tobacco plant taken around mid-way up the plant. These generally constitute Seco leaves in the blend of a Havana cigar and are valued for their satisfying taste and aromas.


The Centrofino is available in tins of 16 cigars.

'Nicarao Reserva Especial' 2015 Limited Edition in Stock !


London, England, 4, February 2019.



Nicaraguan puro, Nicarao Especial is blended with unique leaves. Three peculiarities give Nicarao Especial its unique personality.


First (1), the leaves are harvested from the best plots on our farms. The leaves come from the best microclimates of our Nicaraguan terroirs. Cigars are similar to wines; only a few meters can make the difference between a grand cru and a simple appellation. Understanding the soil and the environment is essential for a singular cigar production. Second (2), after harvest and first fermentation, the leaves are selected and classified with especially meticulous precision. Classification is therefore finer than the one for standard market leaves. Third (3), the leaves are kept around one year longer in fermentation and aging than market standard leaves. Having leaves from 2 to 5 ½ years makes the Nicarao Especial a cigar rolled with a moderately aged leaves.


Those 3 peculiarities give Nicarao Especial blend an outstanding depth in its taste and a delicacy in its strength. The blend reveals its character with refined elegance.


The Nicarao Especial is a medium to full body cigar (#6½ to #7 fortaleza) that reveals an amazing richness of aromas and tastes.
