I managed to spend the last night of the old year at Highland Cigar Company, around good friends, family and fantastic drinks. I met Rick Baumgartner of Kristoff, and Garrett Damore of AVO/Davidoff, may be setting some things up in the future with these two gentlemen.http://whitewolfindulgence.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/img_1356.mov
They’re really knowledgeable about the cigars they sell, and they’re both passionate men too.
Drink of the Night? (Before the Champagne of course!)
Blood and Sand:
- 1 oz Scotch (In this case, Cliff used Johnny Walker Black)
- 3/4 oz Cherry heering
- 3/4 oz Sweet vermouth
- 3/4 oz Orange juice
- ¼ oz Lemon (Classically, not an ingredient)
Mad Moulton was on FIRE New Years Eve, making those cocktails like a boss. I’m a fan of savory and this classic cocktail had enough balance and froth that made it look as pretty as it tasted. My preferred cigar was the ACC S.E. 12 Year to ring in the new year, but I had a chance to re-taste the Kristoff GC – and it indeed is lighter than presumed, with cocoa and coffee notes, slight bite but a smooth draw and a solid, medium finish. I had the Robusto.
I have this one cigar that..honestly I know so little about because there’s some mystery behind it, but all I can tell you is that it’s supposedly reminiscent of the Opus Double Corona NOT made by A. Fuente. It’s a fairly lengthy cigar made by Purity Cigar Group and when I can post a pic of it, I will.
It might be my new years smoke.
I’m looking forward to the ACC S. E. 12 year – which I’ve reviewed in a video here. It’s a great smoke and a fantastic way to ring in the new year at Highland Cigar Company.
Though who knows. I hear Highland is doing a Drew Estate/Kristoff event on New Years Eve – so I imagine drink pairing but probably no official review from me LOL!
I hate to see this but Chai Nicole is leaving Highland Cigar Company and moving on to bigger things. So come join us at Highland Cigar Company Friday, October 7th from 7 PM until close while we wish Chai the very best in her new path!
I remember walking into Highland Cigar Company almost three years ago with my oldest Girlfriend and Chai being the first to greet us and treat us right. She’d kept the scotch flowing, had the notes on all the drinks and knew more than an average 25 year old would about spirits and cigars.
She’s been a part of Mix, Mingle Indulge, a quarterly event at Highland that showcases female owned businesses and educates the smokers about the hobby we all have a passion for.
I hope you’ll raise a glass with me to toast this awesome woman in her next journey!
Had a blast last Saturday and just forgot to post about it cause it was THAT crazy LOL!
The local rep from Rocky Patel, Stacy Cross, showed up with plenty of goodies, specials, and raffles. Featured were the new Edicion Unica May 20th, 2011, among others. She shared space with General Cigars and a Rocky/General collaboration that escapes me and if she sees this post hopefully she’ll let me know what the other cigar was!
Notes on the Edicion Unica are as follows:
A nice, clean look with a paper bag brown wrapper. Light with no visible flaws or veins. The pre-light is full of wood flavors and the typical stone fruit/raisiny tastes often found in cigars.
Upon lighting, the wood notes come across heavily reinforced. As with any Rocky Patel cigars I’ve smoked, the construction and draw are spot on.
Toward the middle of the cigar, sweet cedar notes present themselves along with deep pepper. Wood takes a back seat to (dark?) cocoa bitterness.
Touch of leather on the final end, and the cigar is mellow without being in your face overpowering. A limited release, if you can find these, get your hands on them and give them a try!
Of course Mad Moulton was in, making a ton of dope ass drinks that not only had plenty of flavor, but looked incredible to boot. Take a look at his Instagram for proof of his cocktail prowess!
For an 11th anniversary party, it was much lower in key than last year’s 10 year, but still an awesome place with great folks, drinks and cigars. It was indeed, an example of Pure Indulgence.
That’s right. The eleventh anniversary of one of Atlanta’s top spots to smoke cigars and drink is upon us.
See the image for details! Join them and me this week!
