"The most futile and disastrous day seems well spent when it is reviewed through the blue, fragrant smoke of a cigar." - Evelyn Waugh

Cabanas No. 751 Alfred Dunhill 98 Vintage
In a cedar cabinet box of 50 cigars, these were amazingly good to smoke. The cigar showed beatutiful, oily, dark-brown wrappers and smoked beautifully as well. Medium- bodied with a superfine, nutty character, they caressed our taste buds with every puff.

Montecristo Seleccion Suprema No. 1 98 Vintage
It was a shame to break up the cedar box of 100 cigars, but what cigars. The draw was so good they almost smoked by themselves, and the rich, creamy flavors filled your mouth. They were good down to the last inch. Estimated production date: 1958.

Romeo y Julieta No. 758 Alfred Dunhill Ltd 97 Vintage
The packaging of this lonsdale cigar is wonderful, with each cigar individually wrapped in cedar sleeves. The cigars themselves are equally impressive, with loads of rich coffee-and-spice character yet in a very harmonious style. Estimated production date: 1959.

Cohiba Siglo V 96 Lonsdale
It's a shame when you finish this cigar. You can't get enough of it. It is full-bodied and rich yet maintains superb harmony. A truly refined cigar.

Cohiba Siglo III 95 Lonsdale
A great addition to a great line of cigars. It is gorgeous to look at with its rich brown, smooth wrapper and gives loads of pleasure with every puff. An opulent smoke with great finesse and class.

H. Upmann No. 4 Alfred Dunhill 95 Vintage
This is a deceptive old cigar that starts off slowly with medium-boded tobacco and almost minty aromas and flvaors, but ends with a burst of spicy character. Estimated production date: 1960.

Cohiba Robusto 96 Rubusto
Mouth-filling with rich, coffee and spicy flavors and a impressively long finish.

H. Upmann No. 22 Alfred Dunhill Seleccion Suprema 94 Vintage
What an experience to smoke. Fondly called the Flying Pig in the trade in the late 1950's, this is a thick-girth cigar with a lot of character. It burns evenly and easily with a rich yet delicate tobacco, nutmeg flavor and a long aftertaste. Estimated production date: 1958.

Hoyo de Monterrey Double Corona 94 Double Corona
A beautiful cigar, reminiscent of some of Cuba's best. It has powerful flavors of spice, including a strong hint of cinnamon with a smooth leathery note to round it out. A complex earthy/woody finish.

Ramon Allones Gigantes 94 Double Corona
This cigar has a smooth, creamy texture with strong pepper and spice notes and a sweet, intense, nutty character on the finish.
