Cigar and beverage pairings can increase the smoking experience by complimenting flavors and creating a more enjoyable outcome.  Choosing a cigar and a beverage is a personal preference.   It could depend on the time of day, temperature, type of activity and alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage.

I enjoy a morning cigar with a cup of coffee while reading a newspaper while on vacation.  You could add a liquor to the coffee if you want to spice it up.  A bloody Mary is another option.  My choice of cigar is more on the mild side because it is the beginning of the day.  Sometimes I smoke a cigarillo (a shorter cigar).

A little later in the day on the golf course you can enjoy a cigar with a beer.  The beer can be refreshing with a mild or medium cigar.  If you prefer a dark beer than you might want to pair it with a Nicaraguan tobacco cigar which can be a fuller combination.  A non-alcoholic choice of beverage can be lemonade or ice tea.

During cocktail hour there are more beverage options.   You could be complimenting your cigar with a glass of wine.  Depending on the type of wine (dry, sweet or fruity) can determine the type of cigar you smoke.  A smooth Dominican tobacco robusto might fill the bill.

Should you be drinking scotch, bourbon or whiskey a maduro cigar will match each other’s strengths.  Rum and coke are another good option.

If you are drinking water, soda or another non-alcoholic beverage, your choice of a cigar is wide open.  Your beverage will not over power the taste and flavor of the cigar.

An after-dinner drink and cigar can get interesting.  Of course, you have the option of coffee, a dessert wine or after dinner drink such as Bailey’s.  This can be the time for your favorite cigar.  A nice Connecticut wrapper cigar with your choice of filler(Honduras, Dominican or Nicaraguan).  This is a pairing that you would want to take your time smoking and drinking.

The pairing choices are very personal and will depend on the time of day and the activities that a person is doing can matter.

Experiment with different options.  These should be relaxing and enjoyable times!

Pour it.  Light it.  Say “AH” as you sit back!
