Debonaire at Tabakado Meet & Greet. Just like last year, Philip Zanghi will be present at Het Oude Wandelpark in Valkenswaard at Tabakado’s yearly Meet & Greet event on Sunday, September 15. His presence is confirmed by his representative in The Netherlands.

Other confirmed names are David Davtian, David Blanco, Dapper Cigar Company, Gurkha’s Juan Lopez, Jeremy Casdagli from Casdagli Cigars (formerly known as Bespoke), and Jan Vistisen from Royal Danish Cigars. Last year, we were a guest at the event and shot this video.

Tabakado Meet & Greet

The renowned cigar shop Tabakado in Eindhoven has been hosting the Meet & Greet for a few years now. And it is one of the biggest cigar events in The Netherlands. Tickets are available for €90 at Tabakado. That includes cigars from the representing companies and a barbecue. Cafe Restaurant Het Oude Wandelpark is a great location for a cigar event like this. 


Philip Zanghi is the man behind Debonaire House. He made his entrance in the cigar industry in the early 1990s with no other than Rocky Patel as his partner. Both were new to the industry and founded Indian Tobac. But Zanghi sold his share to Patel a few years later to focus on other parts of the tobacco industry.

In 2011, Zanghi returned to the cigar industry. He teamed up with the Reyes family on the Dominican Republic. Together they created the Debonaire Habano. Zanghi did the blend, Reyes produces the cigars in their De Los Reyes factory. And the collaboration paid off. In 2015, Debonaire released the Debonaire Maduro. And the Indian Motorcycles cigars, both in a Habano and a Maduro blend. The Debonaire Daybreak, with a Connecticut Share wrapper, followed after. Just like the Indian Motorcycle Connecticut, although that’s exclusively available in Canada for now. Although, there are rumors that the Indian Motorcycle Connecticut will be released globally later this year.
