Cigar in the Bottle was back at the show this year, and if you’re trying to remember where you’ve heard of them, it’s probably from the Fuente Fuente OpusX ForbiddenX Cigar in the Bottle fame.

Since then there have been some different cigars put in the bottle, but idea is still the same.

Cigar in the Bottle Vartan Cigars
The cigar inside the 375ml bottle of Grand Pommier XS VSOP Cognac is from Vartan Cigars. It’s a special blend for Vartan Cigars owner Vartan Seferian, blended by Hendrik “Henke” Kelner.

Currently the only way to get this blend is by buying a Cigar in the Bottle, though it was mentioned that just the cigars are going to eventually be available at Seferian’s store Ambassador Fine Cigars.

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
