The Premium Cigar of the Month Club

You're gonna like this one. Immediately note a rustic, dark brown, somewhat rough looking wrapper. It feels substantial in your hand and smells rich and perhaps slightly sweet before you light it. No soft spots in this even, slow burning, expertly crafted cigar. We found the taste to be medium to full, very creamy, slightly sweet, earthy and a bit spicy. Complex to be sure. Finish is long and enjoyable. Overall, a smoke that provides significant depth, complexity, and rich, full flavor. It Delivers! Consider pairing it with a Roasted Porter or a smoky single malt scotch.

Corporate Event at Alisal

It is well documented that Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort has been providing legendary vacations to generations of guests.  It is also well-known that Alisal has stunning backdrops and picture-perfect locations for wedding celebrations.  But what few may know is that top companies from around the nation choose Alisal as the setting to hold their incentive programs, corporate retreats and destination events.  Besides being located in the heart of Santa Barbara’s wine country, the ranch offers areas for obstacle courses for team-building, horseback riding, lake activities,  and Alisal Event Planners assist guests with custom-creating an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience chock -full of memories to take home and lots of inspiration to continue a productive work year.

We recently played host to such an event.  Releve Unlimited helped create the decor and with fun activities during cocktail hour such as a Cornhole on the lawn, a  Cigar Bar from Mursuli Cigars, a Scent Barfrom the Grapeseed Company,  Beer Tasting from Figueroa Mountain Breweryand dining under the stars lake-side, it’s no wonder this corporate event was so popular with its attendees.  The guests were afforded a real “experience” and not just a “dine and dash” event.
