The Cigars

Rockafeller Cigars

Rockafeller Cigars is a new take on a familiar name. Rockafeller Cigar’s Nicaraguan blends come from the American Caribbean Cigars factory in Nicaragua, which produced noteable brands like Carlos Torano. The Rockafeller Maduro is wrapped in a San Andreas maduro leaf, with an Equadorian binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Rockafeller cigars also come in Habano and Connecticut blends.

The Whisky

The Balvenie 14 Year Caribbean Cask

Caribbean Cask has been matured in traditional oak whisky casks for 14 years, and then ‘finished’ in casks that previously held Caribbean rum.

To create the ideal finish, Malt Master David Stewart filled American oak casks with his own blend of select West Indian rums. When he judged the casks to be ready, the rum was replaced with the 14 year old spirit and the wood was put to work adding the final touches.

The result is an exceptional single malt whisky with the traditional smooth, honeyed character of The Balvenie, married with notes of toffee and a hint of fruit, with a warm, lingering finish.

The Balvenie 12 Year DoubleWood

The Balvenie DoubleWood is a 12 year old single malt which gains its distinctive character from being matured in two wood types. Over the period of maturation it is transferred from a traditional oak whisky cask to a first fill European oak sherry cask. Each stage lends different qualities to the resulting single malt ~ the traditional casks soften and add character, whilst the sherry wood brings depth and fullness of flavour.
