Premium Scotch, Fine Cigars and Great Food from Fleming’s!

flemingslogoNext Tuesday, August 27, Fleming’s will feature premium cigars from Romeo y Julieta and a four course meal by Chef Partner Mark Ogren.  Each course will be matched with a different spirit from The Balvenie Distillerie.

Guests begin with a smoked salmon fish and chips paired with Balvenie Double Wood, aged 12 years. The second course features lobster-sherry cappuccino with Balvenie’s 15-year-old single malt.  Lamb with black cherry-pomegranate sauce made with vanilla-parsnip puree and roasted fennel paired with 17-year-old Balvenie peated cask completes the third course.  Balvenie’s aged 21-year-old Portwood pairs nicely with Fleming’s chocolate espresso panna cotta made with scotch anglaise and pistachio brittle

While I don’t smoke cigars (maybe Michael does?), I’ve come to learn that experiencing a good cigar involves using all of your senses.  While sight, taste, smell and touch seem pretty obvious criteria for judging cigars, I didn’t realize that hearing was also part of the experience.

According to the Tobacconist University, what you don’t hear matters most.  In fact, “A cracking or crackling sound is produced when you squeeze a cigar or pipe tobacco that is too dry.  Depending on the extent of dryness, both the wrapper and filler of a cigar may make a cracking or crackling sound.  Dry cigars need immediate attention and should not be smoked.”

Those interested in enjoying the cigars while at the restaurant can step outside to Fleming’s spacious heated outdoor dining patio, which can seat up to as many as 80 guests comfortably.

The Scotch & Cigar Dinner costs $95 per guest (excluding tax and gratuity) and begins at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 27 at Fleming’s El Segundo, 2301 Rosecrans Ave. The dinner is expected to sell out. Please call (310) 643-6911 or visit for more details and to make reservations.
