Thai cigar and rum lovers met recently to enjoy Dictador rum and cigars at Bangkok’s Novotel Ploenchit. Co-hosted by Dictador and 2 Cigar Guys, the event attracted over 50 guests who made the most of the venue owner’s beautiful private lounge after being forced inside due to poor weather.
Guests sampled the Dictador 12 and 20 YO rum and Dictador’s Ortodoxy & Treasure gin, while lighting up the Dictador cigars on offer. These included the Pavo Real half corona and grand robusto, the J Nelson 1974 robusto, and the XO 1913 double robusto.
“Dictador spirits have been in Thailand for a few years and with the introduction of Dictador cigars earlier this year, we felt the time had come to make our presence known to a wider audience,” said Jean Wolf, who makes up one-half of cigar operation 2 Cigar Guys.
“Compared to Western countries, there is not much of a cigar culture in Thailand, but 2 Cigar Guys aims to change that through new beverage presentations, and whisky and cigar nights. The Dictador evening at Novotel Ploenchit was the perfect example of gaining the followers we’re after. A beautiful location, great spirits, fantastic cigars and a large group of cigar lovers to enjoy it all,” said Wolf.
