Back at the beginning of 2020, Cigar Aficionado and Whisky Advocate set out to collaborate on an epic live event celebrating cigars and spirits alike. However, as you could guess in hindsight, time hasn’t been on their side. Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest, as the gathering is called, was first slated for April 3 and 4 of 2020. Naturally, it was postponed by late March, only to be rescheduled again in August. Now, we hope to report the final postponement of Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest!
As announced by Cigar Aficionado, the previous spring date will now be pushed back to October 30, 2021. That should give lovers of premium cigars and whiskies plenty of time to make their reservations for this promising event. Attendees can enjoy seminars about cigars and spirits during the day, which will be delivered by experts in their respective fields. Then, the evening will culminate in a “grand tasting” of quality libations and cigars.
As it is currently scheduled, the Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest is set to take place in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The event kicks off at 6:30 p.m., but those who buy VIP passes will be allowed entry an hour earlier. Tickets are going on sale soon, so be sure to bookmark their website and check in often!
