Default What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

Since getting into scotch this past year it just seems right to have scotch and a cigar. What is everyone else preference?

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

I don't have a single favorite -- I like wine, beer, scotch, bourbon, gin, tequila, etc.

It just depends upon what strikes me at the time. I tend to drink more tequila and scotch than the others though.

Usually rum or tequila, the heavy beers I like tend to overpower a Cuban cigar. Sometimes I like something with a bit of sweetness to it, like a Port or Patron XO.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

In order:
Irish
Scotch that's not too heavily peated; I don't need smoke overpowering my smoke.
Bourbon
Rum (on the rocks almost always, occasionally in a rum punch when the temperatures get really high)
Beer, usually stout or porter.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

Cognac or scotch with big cigars
(Unlike James I Prefer Islay scotches with tobacco.)

Port, Madeira, PX sherry or Banyuls if after a meal - with a nice Cuban petit corona

Beer if watching football.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

I generally prefer something with a little sweetness. Port, sherry or ice wine all fit the bill nicely. Some brown liquors, like a sweeter bourbon, scotch or rum. Beer can be great but I'm not usually a fan of bitter with my cigars so I lean towards things like Belgian quads or bourbon barrel stouts. I love hops, just not so much when I'm smoking a cigar.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

Before my issues the last two years it would have been rum and coke, cognac, iced tea, beer.

Now my tastes have changed and some other issues that done help so Coke and soft drinks are out. Black or dark non spiced rum, cognac, iced tea, porter or dark beer, water.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

I actually like coffee more so than anything else with a cigar. Iced if it's hot.

If it's a liquor I usually tend to sway towards the sweet side. For instance, Angel's Envy for Bourbon; Balvenie Caribbean Cask for Scotch; Zacapa for Rum.

Back in the day I used to just drink cola because the Nic hit would knock me.

Default Re: What is your favorite alcohol to drink with a cigar?

I'll agree with Josh ( darkleeroy) I've never had a bad experience pairing ANY cigar with a good cup of coffee.

As for booze, I'll agree with most everyone's suggestion, something sweet. I prefer Port and Rainwater Madiera wine with a cigar! As far as Port is concerned Ruby/Ruby Reserve/LBV/ect with a stronger cigar (unless that's all I have), Tawney and Madieras for the not so bold nuanced cigars. My 2˘
