Champagne and Cigar Christening for Your New Launch
So, you bought your new boat a couple of months ago. You’ve had her pulled out of the water, gone over with a fine-tooth comb, painted and she has a new name. And while she may be named after your wife, companion, mother or daughter, you want to christen her with the guys.
You’ve picked out some champagne for the occasion, and you certainly hope that the bottle breaks on her bow. There are some extra bottles for drinking, of course, but you feel there is something missing. You need something extra to welcome your friends to visit the Rebecca Lynn, on which they will be dying to go sailing, or maybe take on a fishing trip.
Aha! You need to pass around some cigars! Perfect!
But, you don’t know what everyone may like – how about a cigar sampler pack? We can recommend a few choices to go with the bubbly. And, just in case you need assurance, many aficionados believe that the bubbles from the champagne enhance the flavor of the cigar. It’s true!
Best of Corona – offers nine of the most popular house brands. A few of the cigars will include a Dominican, mild Maduro; a Nicaraguan, mild-to-medium Candela; and one of our Dominican, mild-to-medium Dos Capos wrappers.
