A night at the Fair­mont

Vir­tuoz­ity holds a mid-sum­mer tast­ing at the heart of the Palm Jumeirah

Virtuozity - - CIGARS -

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.
