…It’s said that Mark Twain smoked as little as 22 cigars a day. He was supposedly quoted as saying…
“If smoking is not allowed in Heaven, I shall not go.”
For this educational, interactive and eye opening event (suitable for cigar smokers and non-smokers alike), ESB is bringing in Edward Carmona, a LA-based Torcedor (Cuban for “one who twists”) who specializes in the art and craft of cigar rolling.
Our own Master Cigar roller will guide guests through the craft of cigar rolling, and all will observe cigars being created right in front of their eyes (while enjoying cigars and beverages). After the demonstration, cigars will continually be crafted and even customized by strength, flavor, or by beverage pairing. Those brave enough will even have the opportunity to hand roll their own, (even the non-smokers).The assortment of cigars will include an array of styles, blends and strengths, including the full-bodied Aged Maduro dark wrappers. With a focus on the cuban style, Edward will explain the history and art of cigar making, from the blends and fillers, styles, types of leaves and wrappers, to the range of flavors from light to dark, and light-bodied to deeper-bodied. El Canito Cigars are made with a quality blend of premium tobacco leaves from the Dominican Republic, where some of the highest quality tobacco is grown. This ensures the quality of the tobacco and an aromatic and flavorful smoke of their Natural and Connecticut Shade as well as their Maduro cigars.
There are two ticket options for this experience, the Full Cigar Experience and the Social Expericene (non-smoking). Those who opt for the full Cigar Experience will receive two cigars throughout the evening: one to smoke during the event and demonstration, and another to either take home, or smoke that evening as well. Additional cigars may be purchased at the event! ESB will provide a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as small bar bites. The spirit selection will be based on the evening’s cigar selection, and will include Whiskeys, Liqueurs, and other Spirits; to ensure harmony between cigars and beverages.
Whether you are a seasoned cigar-smoker, or a friend or significant other to one who appreciates this century old art form, join us for this educational, fun, and social evening.
