Vintage, rare and mature cigars worth an estimated £250,000 are expected to be sold during C.Gars Ltd’s seventh auction at Boisdale CanaryWharf, London, on November 26.
In announcing the auction, which will include also cigar-related lots, managing director, Mitchell Orchant, said the global downturn and global smoking bans hadn’t affected C.Gars’ shop, website or auction cigar sales one bit. “Quite the reverse,” he added.
“As usual, dedicated wealthy cigar smokers will be flying in to Londonto bid thousands of pounds for some of the finest and most sought-after tubes of premium tobacco in the world.”
The November 26 auction will feature around 260 lots, including a wide range of pre-Cuban-embargoHavanas.
“For the first time at auction will be 40 lots comprising the private collection of a respected collector and connoisseur,” said Orchant.
“They were purchased from Christie’s from 2001-2004 and have since been stored in a temperature- and humidity-controlled, custom-built, state-of-the-art humidor. They are now stored at Davidoff inGenevaand on sale to the highest bidder.
“If you want to bid for the entire 40 lots it will set you back over £70,000. We might even throw in an ashtray,” said Orchant.
