Drapers Bethesda: New Arrivals, Happy Hour & Super Bowl

La Palina's Family Series: The Pasha

To the Great Patrons of Bethesda Tobacco:

It has been just over a week since Matt Krimm and I purchased Bethesda Tobacco from Mike Copperman and we have all been working hard to make the store an even better place to enjoy a smoke. New items keep arriving daily and I wanted to take a minute to fill you in on what has arrived and what changes you can expect to see in the near future.

I will tell you one thing that has not changed is our Happy Hour, which takes place at the shop from 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM this Friday, January 28. Stop by and unwind with us as you prepare for the weekend. I think you will like what you see. With all the new cigars in the humidor we realized there are not enough shelves to hold them all, so expect the humidor’s shelving capacity to increase in the coming weeks. 

As of today, the shelves are filled with new shipments from:

  • Tatuaje, Cabaiguan, and Triunfador from Pete Johnson
  • Davidoff Special Series, Maduro, Puro d’ Oro, 1000 Series, Aniversario Series and AVOs
  • My Father and My Father Le Bijou from Pepin Garcia
  • Arturo Fuente Classic, Hemingway, and Don Carlos Lines
  • Rocky PatelVintage 1992, 1999, 15th Anniversary, Valedor and 1961
  • La Palina
  • Gran Habano
  • Oliva Series V, Series G, and Connecticut Reserve
  • Padron Aniversario, 45, 46, 1926, and Classic Line
  • Nub
  • La Aroma de Cuba Classic and Mi Amor Lines
  • Ashton Classic, VSG, Maduro and Cabinet Series
  • XIKAR cutters and lighters
  • Ashton and Savoy pocket cases
  • Michael Dixon Humidors

What more can you expect to see? Believe it or not there are more cigars on the wayfrom Illusione, Camacho, Drew Estates, La Gloria Cubana, Arturo Fuente, Alec Bradley, CAO and a Bethesda Tobacco mainstay: La Flor Dominicana.  We have more cutters and lighters on the way from Lotus and Porsche Designs as well as humidors from Savoy and more Michael Dixon.  Pipe smokers have not been forgotten, we have brought in a few new pipes and tobaccos and there are more on the way.  If there is something you do not see on the list please be sure to ask Paul, Nader, Leonard,  Robin, Ted, Brad, Matt, or myself to see if we can add it to the product mix. We will be holding a Super Bowl Bash, expect to see the details early next week but you can expect cigar specials to be part of the celebration.

That is all for now but I want to thank each and every one of you for the warm welcome you have extended to Paul, Matt, and I. We have only been there a short time, but we already feel a part of the community you all have created.

See you this weekend!
