Launching of the Cohiba Piramides Extra in Havana – Updated with pictures

3 Dec

I was invited to attend the official launching of the Cohiba Piramide into the Cuban market at the Club Habana LCDH.

Leo and Jorgito were kind enough to provide me earlier with some boxes of the H.Upmann 520 and the RA EL’s that I enjoy, as well as enough Monsdales to last me a week or two and told me about the launch.

The affair was nice and low key except for a short speech by Sr Maique, VP HSA, whom I passed on regards from Rob Ayala of FoH.

Also there were Arturo Mejuto, formerly Havana House Canada, Arnaldo Ovalles, director El Laguito, the Chinese Ambassador to Cuba and a large Chinese delegation led by my good friend Ziqui.

In fact, I had the most interesting conversation with a member of the Chinese defence attache’s staff on global political matters in a very polished Castillian Spanish.

I attended with my Italian delegation, Renzo, the great Pasta expert, and newly arrived Fabio and Mauro, my beach-going buddies.

Toby dropped by and over free Cuba Libres and a Cohiba Siglo IV we made plans for touring out of Havana.
