How sad! I really enjoyed what Nic did so I could get a glimpse into the UK Cigar world.
I, too, am sorry to hear this sad news. I had just attempted to find out why I had not received any issues of UK Cigar Scene since June. The notice of the Twitter page of the magazine had two (2) notices (today, no less) about Nic’s memorial service. So sad to hear of Nic’s passing.
Very sad news indeed. The UK Cigar Scene mag was a great resource for cigar news and reviews, it is a shame that it has come to an end. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones: RIP Nic Wing
Does anyone know what happened? He seemed in such fine spirits and state
I had recently discovered his online instructional videos via watching Sautter Cigar reviews, lots of class. While it won’t be the same without him, it would be nice if his work continued. RIP Mr. Wing.
