My Cigar Lounge Adventure is Two Years Old! Celebrate With Me In Palm Coast!

Out with the old, in with the new! (July 2013)

Hard to believe, but it has been TWO YEARS since I joined Ky Ekinci in a new venture.   With literally no cigar experience, I jumped in  to The Humidor with both feet in mid-July 2013.   After a few days of “undercover boss”, I announced to the world that I was actually the new boss.  It was a scary and invigorating time.   Who I am fooling, it is still a little scary.   Not only am I banking on the success of this venture, but I also have four employees who depend (each in different degrees) on the success of this venture for income.  No pressure or anything.   But, I have a great partner and team helping me along the way.

We will be celebrating for three days in Palm Coast this week!  Won’t you join the party?

We’ve greatly expanded the beer selection since Fall of 2013

On Thursday we will be hosting a cigar & wine social featuring Cordoba & Morales handmade cigars.  Our cigar “socials” have become a vital part of the operation as a means of introducing new cigars to our guests and bringing new guests in for the first time.    Read more here and RSVP!

Friday we will be hosting our annual Black Friday In July event.  Great deals and live music from 5pm-10pm.  Don’t miss it!

We continue the celebration on Saturday with great beers from Anderson Valley Brewing.  Love music from Brad Griese 8-11!

Please make plans to come out for one or all of the events later this week.   I want to thank you personally for supporting me, my partners, and my staff for two years!!

Love,

Tiki

PS Also worth noting is the Humidor’s 10 Year Anniversary coming up October 1.   Click over to Facebook for more info about this milestone.

Featured Beers For The Night

Boont Amber Ale – This amber ale boasts hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters. Beer Advocate Score: 86 ABV: 5.8% (12 oz can)

Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale – A slightly sweet, malty session beer with a creamy mouth feel and clean finish. Beer Advocate Score: 83 ABV: 5% (12 oz can)

The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose – The Gose style (pronounced “Go-zuh”) was traditionallybrewed using salted water and 50% malted wheat and was spiced with coriander and hops. Beer Advocate Score: 85 ABV: 4.2% (12 oz can)

Hop Ottin IPA – This American IPA is brewed and dry-hopped with copious amounts of Columbus and Cascade. This beer is a showcase of the bright citrusy aromas, bold grapefruit and pine-like flavors, and resiny bitterness that hop heads crave. Beer Advcate Score: 90 ABV: 7% (12 oz can)

Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrel Stout – Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. Beer Advocate Score: 85 ABV: 6.9% (22oz bomber)

Pinchy Jeek Barl – Aged for 6 months in Wild Turkey® barrels, this bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin ale is pleasantly creamy with a silky body and sweet caramel flavor. Beer Advocate Score: 82 ABV: 8.5% (22 oz bomber)

Huge Arker – True to its Boontling moniker, “Huge Arker” is a massive force of nature that detonates on your tongue. After primary fermentation, the beer is aged in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels until it fully matures. The deep mahogany color is evocative of the opulence to follow. Dark luscious aromas of burnished oak mingle with candy sugar, bourbon and hearth-baked bread. Beer Advocate Score: 90 ABV: 13.5%

Old Fashioned Planter’s Punch

Rum has an official classification system on Jamaica, categorising the alcohol from light and clear to rich and dark varieties. Planter’s Punch, an International Bartenders’ Association Official Cocktail, combines dark rum, lemon juice, grenadine syrup and Angostura bitters, a potent mix of 44.7 per cent alcohol, herbs and spices that comes from Trinidad and Tobago.

Here’s an old time recipe in verse.  I can’t read it without singing it in my head.

A wine-glass with lemon juice fill, of sugar the same glass fill twice/Then rub them together until/The mixture looks smooth, soft, and nice./Of rum then three wine glasses add, /And four of cold water please take. A drink then you’ll have that’s not bad / At least, so they say in Jamaica.
