For The Weekend: Cigar and Liquor Pairings

Cigar and Liquor PairingsFamous Smoke online cigar store has created an interactive cigar and liquor pairings guide. Pick your poison, then answer a couple of questions and the site offers a cigar suggestion.

It is fun, but I wish that it was a bit more serious. After selecting a spirit from the choices of scotch, bourbon, rum, brandy and tequila, the site asks for a price range. Then it gets silly with the “What Are You Doing” question that offers choices such as “signing divorce papers” and “trimming your moustache.” ¬†Pick one of the six activity offerings, and the site offers a cigar pairing.

The information in the pairing, at least, is serious. Here’s the suggestion for a cigar to pair with a mid priced bourbon while you’re playing Texas Hold ‘Em

La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 6

MSRP: $8.29 | Other La Gloria Cubana Cigars

“Dark and rich in flavor, featuring notes of coffee, cocoa, and hints of anise. Paired with a Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select, you pick up additional notes of vanilla, and hints of oak on a long finish.

When the weather warms up and I can actually sit on the back porch, I’m going to try a few of these pairings.
