Happy New Years and here’s to a fantastic 2018!

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.

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.

considering I’m pondering a trip out to Cuba for a weekend sometime this year.

In the meantime, Papa’s Pilar Rum – a damn fine sipping rum which we’ve had and will leave for review on a later date will be featured.  I can’t speak to the tequila, ya’ll know that isn’t how “I” roll but if Chai’s pouring it, it’s probably solid.
