Smokin’ on the Hudson 2017
New York/New Jersey’s Premier Cigar Event!
Ever wanted to share a smoke with some of the most influential names in the cigar industry? How about doing so along the waters of one of the most iconic skylines in the world? Well, if you’re a cigar lover in the Tri-State area, I have some good news for you..
Smokin’ on the Hudson, hosted by Casa de Montecristo, is an annual sail down the scenic Hudson River, and a night that’s tailor-made for avid enthusiasts of premium cigars. The event has become one of the most prolific gatherings of smokers and cigar personnel on the east coast; where aficionados can share in their favorite pastime alongside some of the biggest names in the game. This recreational evening of all-things cigars includes an open-bar, gourmet dining courses, special offers on top brands, and live music from the Grammy Award-Winning band, YeraSon.
This year’s voyage takes place on September 16, and begins with an all-inclusive pre-party in Hoboken, New Jersey. Afterwards, the Cornucopia Majesty Cruise will set sail on the Hudson, where guests can indulge in an onboard open bar, and buffet-styled selections of fine dinner and dessert items. Event-goers are free to light-up their favorite cigars anywhere on the boat to take in the sights of the world’s most famous city, including the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.
Throughout the evening, attendees are encouraged to enjoy a smoke with an all-star ensemble of cigar masters, including Aging Room creator Rafael Nodal, Erik Espinosa of Espinosa Cigars, Drew Estate’s David Lafferty, Michael Herklots of Nat Sherman, and La Gloria Cubana ambassador and master blender Leo “The Papa” Peraza. These cultural icons will be lighting up throughout the evening, sharing their extensive knowledge of premium tobacco, and best experiences within the cigar industry.
Additional brands to-be featured at Smokin’ on the Hudson 2017 include: Montecristo, Davidoff, Arturo Fuente, Padrón, Rocky Patel, Ashton and XIKAR. Representatives of these renowned labels will be waiting to share a smoke, and even some exclusive promotions, with all guests in attendance. Eager cigar fans can even win great prizes by testing their rolling skills in the special ‘La Gloria Cubana Super Roll’ contest.
Since its inaugural sail in 2015, Smokin’ on the Hudson has been regarded as the area’s quintessential smoking experience, for both cigar connoisseurs and manufacturers. Seating is limited and always in-demand, so don’t miss the boat on this one (literally!). For tickets or more information on this year’s event, visit www.smokinonthehudson.com.
