Cigar and Whisky Pairings

Liam Hetherington

04/04/2018

A question we often get asked here at C.Gars is "what's the best cigar and whisky pairing?" There is no definitive answer but we do have few answers that you might like. What do you choose first the cigar or whisky? Well most people will usually choose the cigar considering the flavour of the cigar and choose to pair the taste of the whiskey with the vintage of the smoke. Of course, avoiding a smoke-tinged whiskey is preferable as you generally want something that highlights the deeper flavours of the cigar.

They don't enhance each other's flavours but join forces to become its very own experience. As an unwritten rule pairing a mild cigar and a mild Whiskey is the best way to enhance the flavours as is the case with a stronger flavour cigar or whiskey. This doesn't mean you can't pair a strong and mild as this might be the opposition you need.

Whatever combination you choose you can be sure that the flavour of the cigar or whiskey will be enhanced.

Take a look at some of our suggestions below:
