When you think of pairing drinks with something what comes to mind first? Cheese? Dessert? Meats? How about cigars?
You can make pairings of almost anything to complement each other, but pairing certain alcohols and cigars together can give you a luxurious, decadent experience like nothing you’ve experienced before.
The amazing magazine Gear Patrol has released a list of excellent pairings that will change your cigar/alcohol appreciation, and here they are for you to consider:
Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve Toro and Zaya Gran Reserva Rum
A stronger stogie, the R&J Habana cigar is a bit heavier than what other R&J stogies are known for, but it’s that much more unique. Rich with pepper and woody flavors, then settled with chocolate and coffee notes as you smoke further, this cigar goes great with a nice, dark rum like the Zaya Gran Reserva on the rocks or up.
Montecristo White Belicoso and a Cappuccino
What sounds better than a smoke and a perfect cappuccino? Probably nothing. This perfectly constructed cigar both looks, tastes, and smokes to perfection. Both tasty and mild, this cigar is not for the faint of heart. On a nice, brisk morning, after breakfast with a hot cappuccino in your hands, enjoy the White Belicoso. You’ll thank us.
Rocky Patel Vintage 2003 Cameroon Robusto and Founders Breakfast Stout
This is probably the prettiest combo off the list. The Cameroon’s wrapper takes center stage with a rich, chocolatey color and an earthy, wooden scent. Burning slow and rich, you experience hints of leather and soil, this cigar is a lesson in the darker indulgences. Perfectly paired with a cold brew like Founders Breakfast Stout to wash it down.
