Vangulo speaks, should the world listen ?

By Richard on October, 27th 2005 - 11:12 am

I have a dream, It is a dream of a united world,a free world,an equal world. Here in Potsdam at the Vangulo Centre for Global Human Rights we believe that Society needs to dream. Freedom unites. Together we can overcome the tummoult of uncivilized chaos and overturn the obtusity of a self satisfied, and archaic political system.Now is the time.Time has never been so precious to humanity than in this very instant! Goodbye, and remember my dream, be free and unite.

Cigar weekend, what to smoke with heavy foods

By Richard on October, 17th 2005 - 3:40 pm

Just spent a fantastic weekend in the French Alps with a group of Aficionados doing a tasting session, in view of an upcoming 'Game Food Festival' next month. Top of the picks were the Partagas Shorts (small power stick, ideal for breaks during dinner, compliments heavy stews perfectly), Bolivar Coronas Extra (we found this to be an excellent appetizer cigar to go with smoked meats, terrines, pâtés), Punch Black Prince (rich flavors, without being to distracting. Some will enjoy this after dinner, others before cheese and dessert) and finally three big cigars for post dinner chats round the fire, accompanied by a well aged Port, Whiskey, Cognac or Armagnac - Partagas Lusitanias (my pick, this cigar is rolled for precisely these moments), Bolivar Coronas Gigantes (another power stick, that releases some subtle flavors which will expose hidden aromas in your Digestives) or the Saint Luis Rey Churchill (a little less power, but country type flavors, for those looking for a little sweetness to cap off the evening). Don't hesitate to explore and try these cigars with all types of rich dinners, you will find that a well chosen cigar will amplify your feeling of content and total satisfaction. Enjoy !

Columbus Day Celebration continues !

By Richard on October, 11th 2005 - 4:49 pm

513 years on, it can mean only one thing, the full selection of the Cohiba brand just for you. In 1492, during Columbus' first voyage to the "new world", he visited the island of Cuba. His sailors were introduced to "Cohiba" by the island natives, a bunch of dried leaves that were smoked in a pipe called a "Puros". The Myth was born. In 1982, three types of Cohiba Cuban cigars were introduced to non-diplomats: the Lanceros, the Coronas Especiales and the Panatelas. Three more vitoles were added to the brand in 1989: the Espléndidos, the Robustos and the Exquisitos, completing what is known as "La Línea Clasica". Five more vitoles were added in 1992 creating the "Linea 1492": the Siglo I, II, III, IV and V. Cohiba remains the "King of the Cubans". Further additions were the now famous Cohiba Siglo VI, to make up the full line of the 1492 Linea. Cohiba’s Limited Edicion cigars have been more and more exciting, culminating with last years’ Cohiba Sublimes. THE big smoke !

Current quality of the smokes being produced

By Richard on October, 06th 2005 - 10:34 am

Having tasted the recent Swiss Market releases (Punch Robustos and Ramon Allones Eminencias) and the 2005 Limited Edicions (RyJ Petit Piramides EL 2005, H.Upmann Magnum 50 EL 2005, Montecristo D EL 2005) it is clear that the ongoing improvements in the 'quality control' aspects on the production line by Habanos S.A., are having their desired effect. On the regular production smokes, we are seeing a hugely improved construction in the cigars, less problems with draw (plugs and knots), less unravelling and more consistency in blend across different productions of the same cigar. The new cigars being released by Habanos S.A. posses exciting and varied blends, showing an understanding by the industry to satisfy a more sophisticated and adventurous palate. I believe we are entering an intriguing period in the ever-evolving evolution of the Cuban cigar. Better and more consistency in quality, inventive and risk taking in the creation (size and blend), I think we are entering a golden period. All the better for us !
