11/11 - Patoro in Vaduz

Yesterday I spent another evening in Vaduz at Marc's shop. Patrick J. Martin was there to present his new Patoro cigar. Three sizes, 30 cigars per box, limited to 30 boxes per size and year.

He also brought a torcedor with him who rolled some fresh cigars for the people (he only put the wrappers on the prepared sticks, so it's not comparable to the Cuban rollers who'd been here before). I got one from Marc when I entered the shop but it was not my personal liking: much too light and no real flavor. The San Cristobal from the 2009 book and the Familiares of the Vegas Robaina 5th Anniversary humidor had been much more enjoyable.

After the shop closed we moved to the Cuba Club where we'd a really nice time.... good conversations and nice people.... the perfect recipe for a evening to enjoy.
