    Re: Roll Call

    I often smoke a bowl of virginia tobacco, such as McCelland 5100 while sipping bourbon. I really like 5100 with Elijah Craig 12 yr.

    Re: Roll Call

    This is an old thread but I'm a newbie here

    One of my favorite pairings right now is BT and an Indian Tabac Super Fuerte Maduro. The cigar has chocolate notes and I get a vanilla note from the BT, they pair up great!

    On the other hand I can't think of a pairing I didn't enjoy

    Welcome Mike!

    I have enjoyed many cigars with Buffalo Trace. I think their style of bourbon lends itself to cigar pairings. If you can, try matching a Macanudo gold label with a generous pour of Stagg or Eagle Rare 17yo

    Jeff,

    Stagg is next on my list of Pick-ups. I have not smoked a Mac gold in a while. Guess I'll pick one of those up while I'm at it.

    New to the board here. I lean towards the Nicaraguan cigars, and I'm a Maduro fan. A CAO Maduro is my favorite with a Cuban Crafter Cabinet Selection a close runnerup. For a powerhouse combination, try a Sancho Panza Extra Fuerte and some Knob Creek. Guraanteed to knock your socks off. Just don't try it on an empty stomach.

    Re: Roll Call

    I'm happy to admit that in addition to enjoying Bourbon I also like to smoke good cigars. I have a fairly large collection of both and come the weekend, I'm "Livin Large" with my favorite pour and a good stogie.

    Re: Roll Call

    I too enjoy a good cigar now and then. So far my favorite combinations have been Hampton Bay Macanudo w/ EWSB '95 and a Fuente Hemmingway w/ RR101.

    I picked up some short Davidoff perfectos in DC and am chomping at the bit to try one, possibly with either the BMH 11 yr or the Van Winkle Lot B that I also picked up down there.

    For the money, I'm finding it hard to beat the Occidental Reserve Maduros. $4 a stick up here, and they smoke like a $9 stick. I also have an AVO limited edition (not sure what they're called - yearly AVO release with no band) that I've been told is superb, and I cannot wait to try that either.

    Re: Roll Call

    after lots of experimentation over that last year and half I have found many wonderful combinations, but the three most sublime may just be these:

    a Partgas Series D #4 & (the alas soon to be discontinued ) Russells Reserve.

    a Hoyo Epicure #2 (my favorite Stogie) and Weller 19 year

    and a simple sweet non pretentious combo of a Sancho Panza Double Maduro and Ancient Ancient Age Ten Year Mmmmmm. . .

    Re: Roll Call

    I smoke cigars much more often than I drink Bourbon. But when I do, Knob Creek and an El Rico Habano, or a La Gloria Cubano. Fuente Sungrown Double Chateau works well with MM. But then I haven't found an unpleasant pairing yet.

    If this works, here a pic of some smokes. I've scaled back a bit since I took this. Now they're all in the humi so I could get the coolers out of the house.

    Re: Roll Call

    I really enjoy a Monte white carona and Rare Breed or a ERDM (El Rey Del Mundo) rectanglares and a Rip 12yr B. Really just about any good bourbon is enhanced by a good cigar.


    Two ills my wife will never let forget how much I have spent in the last month.
