Hiram and Solomon at Tabakado Meet & Greet. Both Nasir Dakrat and Fouad Kashouty are confirmed for the event on Sunday, September 15 in Valkenswaard. The event takes place at Het Oude Wandelpark from noon till late. It’s organized by the renowned tobacconist Tabakado from the nearby city of Eindhoven. Eindhoven is the home of Philips, the electronics giant, inventor of the fluorescent lighting and the compact disc.

Hiram & Solomon

The brand saw the light after freemasons Nasir Dakrat and Fouad Kashouty discovered that there wasn’t any freemason cigar on the market. Or anything carrying the square and compass on the ring. So they created Hiram & Solomon, and use the freemason crest on all of their cigars. And all of their cigars have names connected to the freemason organization. They are named ‘Entered Apprentice’, ‘Fellow Craft’, ‘Master Mason’, ‘Shriner’, ‘Traveling Man’, and ‘Veiled Prophet’. We reviewed the Hiram & Solomon Traveling Man Gran Toro recently. And within the freemason spirit, Hiram & Solomon donates part of their profits to charity, to support the community. If you have a charity, whether it is connected to the freemasons or not, you can request a donation on their website.
