How Do I Pair Scotch With Cigars?

Do you prefer an elegant or powerful Scotch for pairing with a smoke? In order to enjoy a Scotch and cigar tasting, you should know the personality of both the liquor and the cigar before you sample them together. You can sip single malt Scotch created from malted grain that provides a smooth taste or a blended Scotch with its combination of flavors. Scotch may require a little thought when pairing with a cigar. The beverage can feature facets of the sweet, peaty, or smoky. Like cigars, Scotches have weights and complexities. A hand rolled cigar from a respected boutique provider, like Federal Cigar, can draw out the Scotch’s most enjoyable features, and the same can be said for the drink bringing out the best of the smoke. The two elements should unite in harmony, without battling one another. When it comes to pairings, countries with their distinct cultures can also work together. A Cuban cigar can be paired with a Scottish whiskey or an American bourbon. Generally, a cigar with a lighter body is successfully paired with a milder Scotch. However, rules have exceptions. Your palate has the right to venture into unexpected pairings or complex cigar-Scotch combinations. And our online cigar shop will be happy to provide a few recommendations along the way.
