Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest Now Slated For Fall

Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest Now Slated For Fall

In an unprecedented merging of two major lifestyle events, the inaugural Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest has been rescheduled for October 30 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The cigar and spirits gathering will be hosted by Cigar Aficionado and Whisky Advocate.

Originally scheduled for the spring, the upcoming BigSmoke Meets WhiskyFest will now be an autumnal good life celebration focused on the enjoyment of handmade cigars and premium libations that range from Scotch and Bourbon to whisky and rye. Seminars in the daytime put industry experts in the spotlight before the smoke-friendly evening brings together the best in cigars and spirits.

Tickets for the event have yet to go on sale but will be announced soon.

For more information, please contact events@mshanken.com or visit bigsmokewhiskyfest.com.
