Get more familiar with the smokes and drinks below:

Blanco Nine

The NINE is made with the finest Oscuro Corojo wrapper grown in Nicaragua. The wrapper, which has been aged for a minimum of 3 years, has been masterfully blended with an exquisite binder from the world famous Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua. To achieve the complex and sophisticated taste and aroma of this full-flavored and full-bodied cigar, three different ligero leaves are used from various Nicaraguan tobaccos as filler. There are notes of wood and cocoa on the unlit foot with big flavors right off the light, its smooth draw with clouds of rich smoke. Earth, coffee and spices dominate the palate, quickly followed by a full and long-lasting body. This is a big smoke with a big profile.

Bacardi 8 Anos

Bacardi's flagship aged rum. Created in 1862, BACARDÍ OCHO remained the sole preserve of the Bacardí family for seven generations. Used only for the most special occasions, this golden sipping rum is one of the oldest private rum blends in the world.

Havana Club Anejo

Still being distilled in Cuba, this delightful white rum is what the islanders use for their Mojitos. And if it's good enough for them... well, you get the idea.
