Cigar and Rum Tasting
Do you consider yourself a cigar aficionado? Can you tell your Romeo y Julietas from your H.Upmanns? If not, no worries, as we have the city’s most knowledgeable professionals on hand to teach you all they know about cigars, including how to roll your very own, so you can look and talk like a seasoned professional smoking your hand-rolled habano in the tropical heat of Cartagena de Indias.
This experience is perfect for novices and connoisseurs alike, as our team of experts will accompany you the whole way from choosing your blend of tobacco (do you prefer something smooth, or medium-strength?), to moistening the leaf, rolling, and finally, the most important part: tasting. We will also give you a fascinating insight into the history of this centuries-old tradition, alongside how the leaf is the key to its flavor, how to cut and store your cigar and how to use your nose and taste buds to pinpoint the flavors and nuances in each cigar.
And what’s better to accompany your cigar but the finest selection of rums from around the world? We can teach you how to prepare your palate, identify viscosity, body and finish. Our experts will share their secrets with you and you can learn the captivating history of this highly versatile spirit, which originated in sugarcane plantations of the Caribbean around 300 years ago. We will start you off with a bottle of Dicatador, an award-winning premium Colombian rum made in our very own Cartagena, originating way back in the 18th Century.
Our high-quality services at Hi Cartagena never disappoint and you’re guaranteed to leave this tasting wiser, more informed and a little (hic!) happier, if you know what we mean.
