I retrieved an old copy of Cigar World Magazine from 2001, with an article about London's Sommeliers and "what to drink with your cigar?" back from our London years at CHE Restaurant, Cocktail Bar & Cigar Lounge on St. James street (used to be on the ground floor and first floor of the Economist Building)

A time when I remember smoking quite a few cigars every week... with the team: John DaveyFossard EricTim McLaughlin-GreenLudovic PeyrardStephane Gilet, and even Mark Pratt during the break in the afternoon at the bar of the small hotel/club next door.. (St. James ?)..
