Daniel Marshall unveiled his newest creation: a special three-tier cigar designed to pair with three flights of Glenfiddich Single Malt Whiskies at Cigars at No. Ten, one of the finest cigar venues in London. Marshall partnered with master blenders and cigar creators Manuel Quesada and Nestor Plasencia to develop the special whisky tasting cigar featuring three different blends of tobacco in each cigar.
“I am absolutely honored to have been chosen to partner with Glenfiddich the world’s number one rated whisky in developing this special cigar,” said Marshall. “My wish is for cigar and whisky lovers alike to enjoy, converse, and savor two of life’s most wonderful pleasures, fine cigars and whisky, around the modern day campfire.”
The first section of the DM Red Label cigar is blended with a Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf grown in Ecuador in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 12 years. The second section features a Broadleaf Maduro wrapper leaf grown in Pennsylvania in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 18 years. The final section is blended with a Sun Grown Sumatra/Indonesia leaf grown in 2010, to complement Glenfiddich 21 years.
These special cigars were made in Nicaragua for Daniel Marshall and Glenfiddich and aged in Davidoff of London’s humidor for six months.
Cigars at No. Ten was the winner of the acclaimed Spectator ‘Best Cigar Terrace/Lounge 2014’ Award. The event was hosted by Daniel Marshall alongside Joel Eastman, Commercial Whisky Specialist from William Grant & Sons, owner of The Glenfiddich.
