LCDH Almere presents Smoke on the Water. Even though the La Casa del Habano Almere is the youngest of the four La Casa del Habano shops in The Netherlands, they seem to be the most active one. And they already have a yearly tradition: Smoke on the water.

In September 2018, La Casa del Habano Almere owners Yuri Dijkstra and Olav Meijer, organized a Smoke on the Water event. The couple rented a boat and set sail with a group of regulars from their shop. This event was baptized as Smoke on the Water. With plenty of cigars and rum, they went out to have a party on the IJsselmeer.

During the boat trip, a Cuban master cigar roller showed his skills. Cuban music was played and food was enjoyed. The whole boat was one big sailing cigar lounge. The event was so successful that the dynamic duo decided to make it a yearly event.
