Robb Report Host Guide

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2003

    Whether served at a holiday gathering or presented as a gift to be savored later, a pre-Castro Cuban cigar, a bottle of Château Margaux, or a glass of Chivas Royal Salute 50-Year-Old—a blend of rare Scotch whiskies released this year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953—reflects a host’s sense of style and assures a sophisticated and memorable event.
