It’s summer but Candela is feeling a Winter Storm coming!


The true "Money can't buy" experience by Glenfiddich

Next up, in the popular Candela Nuevo whiskey and cigar tasting, we begin 2019 on a very high note with Glenfiddich and Cohiba night!

As a once off exclusive we will be tasting a Glenfiddich 21 year old Reserva Rum Cask deconstruction. This will be the first time ever done in Australia and potentially the last time too.

Since we feel that the first tasting of the year should be a memorable one, we will also be tasting Glenfiddich 26 year old and the one and only Glenfiddich 30 year old... yes you read it correctly, the 30.

We will be pairing this tasting with nothing less than a Cohiba Siglo VI. We believe this cigar does not require any introduction.

If this is not enough, all attending members will receive a very special collectable gift, the Glenfiddich Ceramic Winter Storm Icewine cask 21 year old!

The Balvenie & Cohiba Tasting


For the first time this year, we are proud to present The Balvenie line of whiskies. Thanks to the natural alchemy and centuries old craftmanship, The Balvenie is the only distillery in Scotland that grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both coppersmith and team of coppers on site, making it the most hand-crafted of single malts.

In this gathering, we will be the tasting infamous range of The Balvenie line and the likes of 12 DoubleWood, 14 Caribbean Cask, 17 DoubleWood and the 21 PortWood.

If that does not excite you, we saved the best for last and we will be presenting you with a marriage of hand selected casks chosen by David Stewart himself, The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 4 and The Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 5.

To top of the night, Candela Nuevo only provides the most delectable pairing for the selection of whiskies, pairing it with none other than the 2017 Limited Edition Cohiba Talisman. This cigar needs no introduction, so please do not miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity.
