The Life of Sir Winston Churchill Cigar Selection
‘I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it. In defeat I need it.’ Winston Churchill, 1946
The Life of Winston Churchill Cigar Selection involves two of Winston’s passions… drinking and smoking. His love for cigars and Champagne are well documented with the cigar in particular becoming iconic. To celebrate the new movie Darkest Hour we have created the ultimate cigar selection for anyone wanting an interactive insight in to the life of this great man.
The Selection contains: Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2006 Champagne – The 2006 vintage, the 16th to be released, of Pol Roger’s bottling in honour of Sir Winston Churchill, a lover of the brand. A full-bodied and robust wine from a great vintage that will age well too.
A Davidoff Winston Churchill The Late Hour Churchill Cigar – Sir Winston Churchill was not a man to follow convention. When most people were thinking of their beds, Sir Winston found inspiration and creativity in the long dark hours of the night. The dark was where he found his spark. “Winston Churchill – The Late Hour” contains tobacco aged for six months in finest Scotch single malt whisky casks, a feat no one has attempted before. The tobacco absorbs the aromas of the cask and whisky, which suffuses the cigar with a unique complexity, depth and the headiest of flavours, creating a unique stimulation of the palate.
A Romeo y Julieta Churchill Cigar – The Romeo y Julieta Churchill cigar is the flagship product of the brand. Named after Sir Winston Churchill himself, who became a devotee to the brand during his post war visit to Cuba. This cigar is the original size but also comes in petit, short and wide – all of which taste similar. The Churchill is a full flavoured cigar that encompasses everything that is great about Romeo y Julieta. Great burning qualities, complex flavours, a smooth draw and sweetness. To get the best out of this cigar it is recommended that you let it age for at least three year, although it is tempting to smoke it straight away
A Davidoff Winston Churchill Cigar – Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was an aristocrat, born into the family of the Dukes of Marlborough. He grew to develop a taste for the finer things in life. Amongst them, cigars. This particular cigar comes from its own noble line – Davidoff – and is descended from and designed to the very same format as Sir Winston’s favourite cigar. Aficionados, the aristocrats of the cigar world, will appreciate the sophisticated aromas and subtle flavours, which change and develop as you make your way along the rich and generous format. To enjoy one is a privilege. Sir Winston understood well that these kind of privileges are not available to everyone.
