Default Show a picture of a great pair!!!

I'm a visual type of a person!!! I had a fantastic pair today and I thought... We should have a place to post photos of our pairings!!!

Today I had a perfect pair: La Flor Dominicana Reserva Especial El Jocko Maduro and a Black Boss Porter (my first of this brand)!!!



The porter was off the hook as well as the cigar!!! The porter had an unsweetened licorice background with hints of coffee, and a smokey flavor!!! The cigar was all leather and coffee!!!


Post your favorite pair!!! (Keep it clean please!!!)

I agree. The admins have enough to do without having to keep close tabs on this. Keep it to smoke/beverage pairs.

On behalf of all the admins, I thank you.

Great idea!

Now its a Fat Tire paired with an 08 SCdlH El Principe



Both pairings were/are excellent!

Fantastic idea for a thread! I find a nice smokey porter a great pairing for a cigar, as well as a full flavored stoudt (paired with a porter and/or a cigar ). I'll post some that I find especially pleasing.

Default Re: Show a picture of a great pair!!!

man SKYWALKER, I DO love a nice black broadleaf. Awesome shot.
But I have to give the prize to the Woodford Reserve and the Boli GM.
For the whiskey alone, never had the BGM. Got a few boxes, but I
can't just open one and smoke it. I have to wait. But how good is that
Woodford Reserve? MAN, I thought I had stopped at Wild Turkey-land
and settled in with my green card. But that WR gives any whiskey a run for it's money.
