Montecristo is recognized as one of the most popular cigars in the world, being born in Cuba in 1935. In old Cuban cigar factories, stories and tales were told to the cigar rollers to help pass the time away. A popular story told many times over was 'The Count of Montecristo'. This particular story was so popular, the name became a brand all its own. The non Cuban version of this cigar was introduced into the US during the peak of the cigar boom in 1995 and has since been a best seller.
Montecristo White Label #3 (88 points Cigar Aficionado)
Creamy, mild and smooth, the Montecristo White is a favorite for aficionados who appreciate a complex smoke without an overwhelming amount of strength.
Montecristo Platinum Toro (89 Pts. Cigar Insider)
Platinum has a spicy and full-bodied flavor thanks to the Mexican binder, which sits below its smooth Sumatra wrapper. With a long finish and perfect burn, the components of this blend are among the finest available.
Ever think about having dinner with three sexy 18 year olds? You will have your chance as we sip on three 18 year old scotches on September 21st. The lovely Nicole Dona, Key Account Manager for The Edrington Group will present 18 year old scotches from The Mcallan, Highland Park, and The Famous Grouse. We will begin with The Macallan 18 yr., widely considered the best single malt on the planet. The last cigar we'll enjoy will be Highland Park's, multi-award winning, 18 year old. Sandwiched in the middle of these two great cigars will be The Famous Grouse 18yr., which sets a new standard for blended scotch with a delicious combination of the other two.
"The world's most precious single malt whisky"
The Macallan Sherry Oak 18, is exclusively matured for a minimum of 18 years in Spanish oak casks, handcrafted and sherry seasoned in Jerez, Spain. This delivers a classic Macallan style, rich in color with notes of dried fruit, spice, and chocolate orange.
Famous Grouse 18:
"Scotland's favourite Whisky"
Its dark amber color and scents of jasmine beckon you to luxuriate in a taste suffused with dried fruits. It is created from the finest single malt scotch whiskies including the world renowned The Macallan and Highland Park. These whiskies are left undisturbed to mature for a minimum of 18 years. Only then is each cask individually selected to unleash this fully flavored malt whisky.
Highland Park 18:
"The Best Spirit in the World"
The nose of Highland Park 18 Year Old displays characteristic toffee sweetness and an almond nuttiness reminiscent of Marzipan. The finish is a prolonged, full, smokey aftertaste.
It was awarded the ultimate accolade in 2005 and again in 2009, when US spirits writer F. Paul Pacult named it "Best Spirit in the World". He states "After 25 years experience, it fits my profile of what makes a perfect whisky, which is to say it's totally in harmony, there are no rough edges and everything is melded together brilliantly.
