Drew Estate Event – Executive Cigars Melbourne FL

Written By: Boston Jimmie - Jun• 27•14

It has been a busy month for cigar event here on the Space Coast of Florida. I just flew in from a week in Detroit and headed right over to Executive Cigars in downtown Melbourne, FL.  The Executive Cigar Shop & Lounge is a full-service cigar lounge specializing in premium hand-rolled cigars and smoking accessories. They have a full line of products including humidors, cutters, lighters, ashtrays, and shirts; as well as hundreds of other related items. Their walk-in humidor regularly stocks over 400 full boxes of premium cigars. There was a nice mix of regulars and some not so regulars that came out for this event.

 

 

Tonight’s  cigar meeting featured Drew Estate and co-hosted by the one and only Rex Schneider from Drew Estate.

Rex and Drew Estate featured some of their newest blends tonight and of course some of the raffle prizes were highly desirable sticks  such as the Liga Privada. The lineup from Drew Estate included, the new Kentucky Fire Cured Fat Molly, Acid Toast , Undercrown,  and many more. For Ten bucks you got a stick and raffle.  Buying boxes got you even more raffle chances.

 

As usual, the team at Executive Cigars joined with Drew Estate did an outstanding job. ‎We enjoyed libations served up by the fabulous bar staff including “The Zoom Lens” – Erica,    “The Uni Bomber”-  Leah and “The Little Magicians Mama’s Heart” – Angie . Now don’t ask me, these are the names Tony gave them. Also mentioned was  “The Tape Measure” – Larry. I feel like I am in a Sopranos episode with all these cool nick names but of course who am I to speak out, I am known as “Boston Jimmie”

The food this evening was served up by Melbourne’s own Crane Creek Hideaway and it was excellent. Crane Creek does an excellent job with their BBQ and they come highly recommended. The pulled pork was some of the best I have had.

Well, as normal at an Executive Cigar Lounge meeting, there were a few other announcements by Tony.

Tony  noted, that next month,  he and Larry will be at the IPCPR convention in Vegas and will be back with the newest and best blends. The July meeting will be held July 31 and we can all expect to here about the convention and what the latest buzz is on new sticks. Tony also mentioned that he has a special stick to feature in July. That would be a rare Christmas release Cigar from Arturo Fuente that he has been hiding away for some time now. He will have limited quantities of this outstanding stick, so come in and check them out. Also, don’t forget, to down load the Executive Cigar App, if you have not done so yet. The app will get you the latest news from the store and you will be one of the first to know what new sticks have arrived.

Once the announcement were complete, it was time for the raffles. And this time, the Executive Cigar lounge gave the first 5 prizes to “Virgins of the Raffle Game”. If you have never been to the Executive Cigar Lounge, they do their raffles a little bit different than other shops. They have a board with cigar boxes attached to it. If you number is called, you get to step up to the board and select any unopened box and you win the prize inside. Of course if you have never played the game you are a “virgin”.  One other twist is that if you are the first to be selected, you also have to accept the wiener dog and hold onto the wiener until the next cigar meeting. I am told they can track the wiener and will find you if you don’t return it.

Now without further adieu, the winners of the raffles are pictured below.

Of course the final ticket drawn does not have a box to open so they win the grand prize. Tonight that was a beautiful Drew Estate glass ashtray. pretty cool if i do say so myself.

One last note, yours truly, is no longer a Virgin as of this past evening, as I did win a nice  Drew Estate “My Uzi Weighs a Ton” and some restaurant cash for Meg O’Malleys across the street. . I will have a review  up soon on this bad boy of a stogie.

Once again, thanks Tony, Rex, and Drew Estate for a wonderful evening of fun and cigars.
