Bolivar Belicosos Finos Orchant Seleccion 55th Birthday Edition!

BBF Orchant 55th

To celebrate Managing Director Mitchell Orchant’s birthday, we have released these exceptionally special Habanos exclusively to friends of C.Gars Ltd and Turmeaus. Just 64 boxes have been made available, to commemorate Mr Orchant’s birth year, 1964.

“I have been a huge fan of the Bolivar Belicosos Finos for many, many years now, so I am always searching for that ‘perfect blend’. Bolivar consistently hit the mark in terms of flavour and construction, but sometimes certain vintages stand out from the crowd. When the stars align – magic happens. I am extremely proud to make available what I would consider the perfect Bolivar Belicosos Finos.”
– Mitchell Orchant, Managing Director, C.Gars Ltd

Old friends of ours will remember with great fondness the 50th birthday editions which flew of the shelves and were enjoyed by clients all over the world.

Celebrate with Mitchell on his 55th birthday, Saturday 14th September 2019, by posting your photos and birthday wishes to our social media channels. Order now to ensure you receive yours in time.

Bolivar cigars are also one of the best cigars to age; their rich, full strength flavours allow for more mellowing and development. The Orchant Seleccion seal of approval will assure you the confidence to further age these magnificent cigars.

PRE ORDER NOW 

Please Note: These cigars are currently available for pre-order and will be released on the 1st of September, to mark the start of the Orchant Seleccion month.

 

How to find the perfect cigar

Cigar aficionados tend to stick with what they know, otherwise why spend money on a cigar to not enjoy it? As they say though “variety is the spice of life!”, therefore sometimes it’s good to mix it up and introduce your palate to the ever growing and wonderful flavours there is out there to discover.

Whether you’re looking for a new everyday smoke or you are just stepping into the cigar world, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself:

When do I want to enjoy my cigar?
How much time will I have to enjoy it?
Will I need to store my cigar?
What is my budget?

Once you know the answer to these you will be on the right path to finding your perfect smoke.

When it comes to your own personal budget, there’s no need to be afraid of the lower budget smokes, there are some excellent value cigars which don’t compromise on the overall quality. We like to make the experience finding your cigar as easy as possible, try our Advanced Search and just alter price range for your preference.

The time you have to smoke your cigar plays a big part too, you don’t want to be picking up a large, 2 hour smoke when you only have a spare 30 minutes to sit back, relax and enjoy; you’ll just waste your cigar – it’s never good practice to go back to a cigar you’ve left to go out as you can lose some of the nicer flavours and replace with some that are… not so nice. Make sure you know when and where you will be smoking your cigar, this then gives you a guideline on what size to go for. If you only have 30 minutes, it’s ideal to go for a Petit Corona size, for example one of the world’s most popular cigars; the Montecristo No. 4. If you have around an hour, you have sizes like Edmundo, Lancero and Piramide. You then have the quicker smokes, ideal if you are going on a short walk or just want to get in a quick cigar without sacrificing on time, the Panatela and Perla are perfect for this. Or even less time, there are some superb quality mini and purito size cigars which won’t compromise on flavour or quality and should only last 5 – 10mins.

Week 3 of our Habanos Brand of the Month – Montecristo Open Regata

Montecristo Open Regata Cigar - 1 Single

Buy yours here

Montecristo is the best known and probably most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged.

The name comes from the hero of Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel ‘The Count of Montecristo,’ which was a firm favourite when read by the Lector to the Torcedores (cigar makers) at the factory where it was founded in 1935.

The original Montecristo range of sizes was composed of a narrow assortment numbered from 1 to 5. Today it consists of a wide variety of vitolas to cover every level of the cigar enthusiast’s needs.

The Open range offer Montecristo lovers a medium bodied smoke still offering Montecristos classic flavours.

Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blends are created exclusively with selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone, home of the finest tobaccos in the world.
