A night at the Fairmont
Virtuozity holds a mid-summer tasting at the heart of the Palm Jumeirah
To keep our regular cigar tastings in full swing despite the summer heat, Virtuozity hosted another fantastic evening with a unique pairing. The event saw two Padrón cigars, the 3000 and the Series 1964, paired with an amazing Macallan whisky.
But in a break from the normal location at The Address Downtown, this month’s tasting moved to The Cigar Lounge, at the Fairmont, The Palm. This popular smokers corner proved to be both a great location and perfectly suited to a small, intimate event for connoisseurs. Although it’s small in size, it more than makes up for it with great service, friendly staff and a home-style feel to the layout.
With dark shutters, lush brown leather and smooth jazz playing in the background, the lounge evokes old Havana, right in the heart of new Dubai. It’s certainly a spot that anyone who enjoys a good smoke should try.
Everyone at the event enjoyed visiting a new spot and trying the unusual pairing. In total around 25 guests came along, proving that a mid-summer event was very welcome for those who had stayed in the Gulf for the long, hot summer, putting up with the oppressive humidity.
