You and your wife are receiving congratulations on your new bundle of joy that just arrived at the Nantucket Cottage Hospital and you dole out cigars to share the good news.

Wedding Shower Gifts: Stock the Bar

WEDDING SHOWER GIFTS: STOCK THE BAR She lives in New York, he lives in Boston and they met on a balmy summer night at a lively cocktail party on Nantucket. Fast forward through their whirlwind long distance courtship and the fine gent has decided to propose to the woman of his dreams at Steps Beach with family members crouched watching from behind the dunes.

The Truth About Drinking Lads: Grads, Dads, & Grooms

The month of June gives us much to celebrate and a perfect time to focus on the milestones of the gentlemen in our lives. It has often been a rite of passage for a young man making his way into adulthood to share some sort of stiff drink with their old man. Whether it is to celebrate the achievement of completing their educational degree, marrying the love of their life or becoming a dad himself, this informal initiation into the next chapter of the young man’s life is one that won’t soon be forgotten.

Enter your first taste of Scotch and the memories created around the occasion, along with whatever wise words are shared and the...Read More >

Cigars by the Sea

What’s in Your Humidor? Select, smoke, enjoy, repeat. Sounds pretty simple when it comes to the world of cigars. However, the analogies of handcrafting an outstanding stogie and a delicious wine are more similar than one would think. This makes it difficult for the person who wants to have the occasional smoke on a special occasion to make the right selection. Sharing in your victory at the Member-Guest golf tournament at one of Nantucket’s private clubs requires a different smoke than bringing home the largest catch for the Big Game Battle fishing tournament, not to mention a special gift for the friends you asked to wear tuxedos at your wedding! Cigars are named and classified according to their size and shape, along with their most distinctive feature being the outside wrapper. The shape of a cigar is measured according to its length, typically measured in inches, and diameter, measured according to its ring gauge. Ring gauge is a unit of...Read More >
