Cigar Butler adds unique touch at Habanos

The Cigar Butler

Guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Doha Cigar Lounge, Habanos, can indulge in the best quality cigars and receive the advice of a Cigar Butler whilst enjoying the sounds of live Cuban music.

The Cigar Butler is a unique addition to Habanos.
A connoisseur who is passionate about his profession, Marin Sararu provides a high quality service to cigar addicts who love to listen to his many stories about cigars, the making process, the origins and the flavours. Habanos offers a wide variety of the worlds best cigars, from Cohiba to Montecristo.
Marin prepares them according to the guests’ tastes, using a Puncher or Scissors to cut, then marinating the cigar in brandy to soften it, finishing with the correct lighting technique. The Cigar Butler goes from table to table with his cigar trolley proposing an extensive range of cigars from many origins, sizes and flavours. Guests may select a cigar from the menu or directly form the humidor; Marin will then prepare and present it correctly on the ashtray. Upon request from the guest, he will cut and light the cigar.
An innovation of the Cigar Butler at The Ritz-Carlton, Doha is to marinate the cigar in a spirit. The first step is to choose the brandy or liquor that has a flavour to match the chosen cigar’s specific aromas.
