The Upmann Corona Junior Cuban cigar: this cigar is creamy with hints of coffee and some nutty flavours as well. This small Havana promises to have a good future. Attractive, with a good draw, thick smoke with complex flavours for such a small cigar. Simply excellent.

 

We regret that this event is unsuitable for vegan guests. You may also purchase additional cigars from the restaurant if you wish to do so.

 

*Where stated a measure is at least the UK standard 25ml.

A cheeseboard will be served during the evening, paired with our whiskey selection.
