The London cigar venue Cigars at No. Ten was the site of the unveiling of Daniel Marshall’s newest creation: a special three-tier cigar designed by Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia to pair with three flights of Glenfiddich Single Malt Whiskies.
The first section of the DM Red Label cigar is blended with a Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf grown in Ecuador in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 12 years. The second section features a Broadleaf Maduro wrapper leaf grown in Pennsylvania in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 18 years. The final section is blended with a Sun Grown Sumatra/Indonesia leaf grown in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 21 years.
“I am absolutely honored to have been chosen to partner with Glenfiddich the world’s number one rated whisky in developing this special cigar,” said Marshall. “My wish is for cigar and whisky lovers alike to enjoy, converse, and savor two of life’s most wonderful pleasures, fine cigars and whisky, around the modern day campfire.”
More events are planned in shops and lounges in the USA, the UK, Germany and Switzerland. Daniel Marshall told Cigar Journal that the cigar will be made available for sale on a limited pre-order basis.
