    Enjoying an AF Hemingway Signature right now. I think I like the Hemingways in this size the best so far.

    Beautiful day in the bluegrass, so I'm hanging out on the veranda this evening enjoying a RP Sumatra, that somehow managed to survive this endless winter. Enjoying this smoke, I am....

    Smoking an AF Anejo No. 77 with some Jim Beam Signature Craft finished with Spanish Brandy. I'll have to see how this pairing works. Might switch to something else to drink after this pour.

    Pairing didn't work so well I kept the last two pours out of this bottle for this cigar but it brought out the earthiness of the cigar more than anything else. I went to the fridge and brought out a can of mugs rootbeer and it worked out extremely well with this cigar. This rootbeer amplified all the good flavors of this cigar.

    Ya know, I also struggle to pair anything with the Anejos. Not sure what it is about them. HUGE flavors that seem to clash with most anything. Very rich/sweet bourbons don't work. Totally agree with the earthiness of the Anejo coming out when paired with bourbon. Almost just have to enjoy the cigar with a glass of ice water and drink something afterward.

    Just had a pre-work Rocky Patel Royale robusto. Liking that the nicer weather seems to be taking hold affording more opportunities to indulge.

    Last night I had an 04 Cohiba Sublime. Trying to stretch out the box I bought back in the day.

    Thanks for sharing good to know you experienced similar. I smoked the first half of that shark without having or wanting to sip on anything because it was just sooo good. So much sweetness and flavors from the draw to the finish.

    That root beer really worked out great tho. Try that the next time you smoke an anejo. I have tried root beer with other cigars and have not worked 90% of the time because the root beer totally overpowers most cigars but it really complemented and intensified the great flavors that the anejo had.
