Bruichladdich Whisky & Punch Churchill Vintage Collection Tasting Night


Next up in the popular Candela whisky & cigar tasting series we have the Bruichladdich whisky edition. The 5 whisky flight will take you on a journey through the history of the distillery and their whisky showcasing Bruichladdich Classic Laddie, Bruichladdich Islay Barley, Port Charlotte Scottish Barley, Port Charlotte Islay Barley and Octomore 7.1

To complement this amazing range you will receive one Punch Churchill Vintage Collection 2000 cigar to enjoy on the night. Punch is one of the oldest brands comprising Habanos S.A., founded clear back in 1840 in Havana by Don Manuel Lopez. The brand was created with the European market of cigar buyers in mind, and named for the puppet Mr. Punch from Punch and Judy. This particular cigar, the Punch Churchill, was discontinued in 2010, so the only sticks you can find today have been aged several years.
