Whisky & Cigar Golden pairing guide

Are you having the cigar on hand but confused about which drink you should pair with? Whisky is your new best friend! Endless combinations are lying ahead for you to disclose. The easiest way to maximise your tasting experience is always pairs a strong drink with a strong smoke to avoid the strength of either one overwhelming the pairing. Or just read on for more pairing guides and ideas!

Nutty aroma is often found in the mild to medium-bodied smokes and company with a creamy smoking experience. For example, Davidoff Grand Cru Series or Drew Estate Liga Privada.

A whisky matured in a sherry cask would be a harmonised combination with a nutty cigar. The unique maturing process would smooth out the spirit with a rounding and rich flavour, further granting the liquor fruity and nutty notes. We recommend Macallan 25 Years Old 1991 Davidoff of Geneva Exclusive (70cl, 53.5%). Infuse with classic Macallan characteristics and selected to pair with a cigar, the hallmark of Macallan excellence. 

Creamy cigars mostly come with a lighter shade and are mild to medium-bodied. A classic choice for both novice or daily enjoyment. Popular options would be Hoyo De Monterrey Petit Robustos and Montecristo Double Edmundo. Both represent Cuban elegance with their signature creaminess and woody aroma.

Open a luxurious bottle to elevate the rare Cuba adventure. The 3W Company 40 Years old Small Batch Private Label Blended Scotch Whisky (70cl, 47.8%) is the dream of whisky collectors. Produced in an exceptionally small batch, this limited blended scotch whisky delivers complex and intense flavours of dried fruits and sweet spices with a touch of buttercream. A lingering warm smoky finish of whisky would add depth to this perfect marriage.

A spicy, balanced smoke would give your day a nice kick. Partagás Serie P No. 2 is the favourite of many aficionados. The well-constructed cigar intrigued with notes of spice and leather. Layer up your spicy cigars with a fruity whiskey to stimulate the entire palate.

Macallan Speymalt 32 Years Old 1973 GM (70cl, 40%) is a Scotland single malt whisky fully aged in the highest quality sherry casks. The whisky’s initial flavour of grapefruit, oranges, and sweetness would balance the spiciness of the cigar. The tasting experience is completed with the spice undertone you could quickly discover in both pairings.
