For some Scotch drinkers, a tumbler of neat single-malt around an outdoor fire pit overlooking the Navesink can only be improved upon by the addition of a good cigar.
If that’s your bag, Salt Creek Grille in Rumson is the place to be Tuesday evening.
Local cigar maker Luis Cortez has a new line of cigars called “Navesink” that he’ll be lighting up around the fire pit at Salt Creek Grille on Tuesday, May 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. Cortez and his staff will be there to hand-roll cigars and answer questions about the new blend.
PieHole checked in on what’s going to be available from the bar to pair with the cigars. Smokers will have single-malts, including Cragganmore 12-year-old, Oban 14-year-old and others, as well as blended scotches and a few bourbons to pick from at a cash bar.
If you get there early for some happy hour deals (Tuesday nights 4 to 6:30 p.m.), you’ll find glasses of wine, draft beers and items on the bar menu at half-off. There’s also there is a complimentary buffet fro 4 to 6 p.m..
