“When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.” Dalai Lama
The Depot Cigar Tasting Record Plummets
Last month’s Newsletter boasted of the great success of this year’s cigar, scotch and bourbon tasting event at the Captains Table Restaurant in Monroe, which had an over-capacity turnout. So we decided to accept an invitation to extend our tasting expertise to another event – namely, a four-course dinner and bourbon tasting at the Dautaj Restaurant in Warwick. But we failed to take into account that this event would not include our co-host – Star Wines & Liquors … nor the fact that the Restaurant changed the price and terms at the last minute. In any event, for whatever reason, all of our charm failed to attract any four-course dinner customers. That is, Zero! So maybe we should follow the Dalai Lama’s advice (see above) and not lose the lesson. Meanwhile, thankfully, cigar sales at The Depot continue to climb, bolstering our claim of being the “go-to cigar cigar smoke shop in Orange County”.
NEW CIGAR OFFERINGS
The Depot has always offered a fairly full selection of Cuban Stock brand cigars from the Dominican Republic, which claims that its tobacco is grown from Cuban seeds. Two Cuban Stock labels in particular have been quite popular – Chubby Shorts and Chubby Longs. They have now been joined by a new Cuban Stock label: the Chubby Boss. Before making the decision to add the new “Boss” to our selection, we of course gave it a try. Because we found it to be a very superior cigar we now include it in our offerings for your consideration.
The Depot Cigar & Candle has the most diverse cigar selection in Orange County, plus plenty of other good stuff AND we always wrap your gifts – for FREE!
