DiMeola Cigar Premiere Party at Up Down Tobacco
Tuesday June 26th 4-7:00 PM

Come meet cigar maven Richard DiMeola as he and his new wife Oleda celebrate their honeymoon by premiering his new DiMeola Cigar here at Up Down Tobacco.

Made by the cigar masters at Agio in the Dominican Republic, the DiMeola Cigar is made with meticulous care from fully aged and fermented tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Brazil and patiently aged in cedar to insure a perfect smoke in every single cigar.

Beyond exquisite tobacco and expert rolling there is something else that goes in to every DiMeola cigar that no other new cigar can claim: four decades of cigar making experience.

To compliment this rich new cigar we will be sampling single malt Scotches & Irish Whiskeys from Allied Domecq Spirits.
