It’s been a while since we posted anything so firstly a massive apologies on behalf of the Cut the Cap team.
We’ve had a lot going on, however we haven’t stopped doing what we do best:
Going to events, catching live music, going to see new films and above all smoking some fantastic cigars.
Last weekend, London saw freakishly warm weather for March and I was fortunate to be introduced to a secret cigar smoking spot in east London that would normally go unnoticed.
A stones throw from Royal Albert DLR station, you will find a perfect view of London City Airport, across a lake (I think it is anyway), which gives a perfect view for any cigar smoker.
As we parked ourselves we were treated to seeing planes land and take off every 5-10 minutes, giving you an idea of how big these planes are that are taking off in front of you.
It’s a peaceful area with grass seating, benches and a walkway for the active person in you.
We chose to sit at the bench with what can only be described as a ‘Mannic’ (Mans picnic). Few snacks and a beverage to keep hydrated throughout the smoke.
The cigar choice: Montecristo Number 2
Ring guage: 52
The Cigar is considered one of my all time favourites. A consistent smoke throughout, great flavours and not to overpowering. This is a cigar I recommend time and time again to novices and for keen smokers alike.
As for the view, check out the pics below, and I hope to see you there in the future.
