Hello everyone! I hope you had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a brilliant new year! I have enjoyed serving you this year and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year sampling many more cigars and spirits. Talking of spirits, I have treated myself to a bottle of Stalla Dhu Glen Elgin Port Wood, a very fruity whisky and certainly packs a punch! What will you all be enjoying over the next few days?

Here in Norfolk it has been unbelievably busy with in store customers and online orders! This is the time of the year when relatives and friends of our regular customers come in to treat them to a cigar or accessory. This is where our customer service is really high quality as I am able to usually tell what my regular customer enjoy in a cigar and can suggest something similar yet different or point the relative/friend in the direction of the customers usual smoke. A very popular cigar this year was the Regius Orchant Seleccion 2023 Peru Robusto. I would say it is the epiphany of Peruvian tobacco!

We have also been able to enjoy the release of the Davidoff Year of the Dragon 2024, which is a very large cigar to say the least! The box is incredible as it resembles a dragon’s head! Plasencia have also released the Alma Fuerte Colorado Claro Robustus II which has been received well as well as the Cosecha 151 La Musica of which I have been so excited for since we heard the news from Plasencia!

I am not usually one for drinking cream liqueur, however, we had the chance to sample a very tasty cream liqueur from Spirit of Yorkshire and it is unbelievable! The best cream liqueur I have ever tasted. If you ever come to the Norfolk shop make sure you ask for some as it is that good! It will make you buy a bottle!

We are expecting a great 2024 here at Turmeaus and I hope you are all a part of it. You will continue to see new changes in our store starting on the 3rd with a new person starting called Ciaran. He is new to the world of cigars (just like myself 4 years ago) so please welcome him and be patient as it is incredibly difficult to learn about all the different brands of cigars as well as how to smoke a pipe and all of the different accessories. But don’t worry he will be trained up to our high standards.

Remember we are open until the 30th of December, afterwards we close and won’t reopen until the 3rd of January. I look forward to seeing you all in 2024 and I hope it is a great year for you all!

So long for now
