There was also a handful of cigar accessories makers there displaying products and taking orders.
Cutters and lighters were put on display by Colibri and Xikar; Liebherr educated attendees on the benefits of cigar refrigeration while Rabbit Air displayed its MinusA2 Air Purifier; Diamond Crown had a table of elegant humidors as did Daniel Marshall, who personally signed one of his humidor designs.
Two gentlemen who traveled from Montreal, Quebec, Eric Gaudreault and Karl Frigan, were particularly excited for the spirits selections, as they were unaware the offerings were going to be of such high quality.
Scotch whisky Glenmorangie also had a booth, as did Irish whiskey Tullamore Dew and Canadian whiskey Crown Royal; tequila brands Patrón and Milagro served as well; Ron Abuelo and Appleton rums could be sampled; Cognac was provided by A. de Fussigny and Courvoisier; and also available was Bombay Sapphire gin and vodka distillers Crystal Head, Hammer + Sickle and Ultimat. Foster's beer and Sledgehammer Wines provided a lighter alternative.
The Casa Fuente "booth" was decked out with bamboo chairs and wooden tables, essentially doubling as a lounge. A bartender offered samples of Don Q rum to sip on while boothgoers enjoyed the moment of rest.
Four automobiles were on display, including two from Chevrolet, a Neiman Marcus Edition Camaro Convertible that was the color of Bordeaux and a sky blue Corvette ZR1.
A particularly memorable moment occurred at the Saturday night party when famed jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval played an impromptu jam at the Arturo Fuente booth.
Like the Sirens of Greek mythology, Sandoval's brass playing called out, stopping conversations and encouraging an entranced crowd to form around the four-time Grammy winner.
