Products provided by Bodegas Torres, CIMEX Corporation, the Pesquera Group were matched with habanos

The Tastes & Aromas session, dedicated to the matching between habanos and rum, brandy, tequila and wines, received good acclaim among guests, Cuban cigar buffs, salespeople, sommeliers and other experts attending the 13th Habano Festival.

Sponsored by Bodegas Torres (Spain), CIMEX Corp. and Habanos S.A., attendees carried out the first blindfolded tasting session of unidentified products, showing off their ability to taste them in a perfect combination with high-end habano vitolas.

Some of the highlights of the day were the exquisite Torres 10 brandy, the 12-year Caney rum (CIMEX) and a tequila brand, a spinoff out of the merger between a Mexican producer and Bodegas Torres. On the habanos side, the standout was a Churchill from the Romeo y Julieta brand. All these are premium products of noble manufacture.

Later on, the Pesquera Group came up with a proposal of Condado de Haza Crianza wine, from Ribera del Duero, 2007 vintage, in a matching with the abovementioned Churchill vitola, a combination that, according to experts, bears out the fact that long-format cigars can perfectly go hand in hand with highly expressive, fruity and intense wines.

The Pesquera Group, whose wines are marketed by Bodegas Sarda, counts on four cellars founded by Alejandro Fernandez, a.k.a. the King of Tempranillo.
