Default First Anejo

I smoked my first Anejo today. I smoked a NO. 46.

It was well worth the burnt fingers I got from the nub.

Is there anything with the same flavor profile that I can get as a everyday cigar? Also, what is a good drink pairing for it?

Glad you liked it! Sadly no, an Anejo is an Anejo, they're aged in old brandy(?) barrels which gives them that little extra twits. Great stick though

Not sure about a drink.. I like coffee though.

I would say....not really. The Anejo is a combo blend of the Opus, Don Carlos and Hemingway lines and the wrapper is aged in cognac barrels for 6-8 months.

I can recommend a lighter, drier port. Good luck!

The #46 is the only one I keep boxes of on hand and sadly there isn't anything that comes close to them in flavor profile. They are truly unique. Glad to hear that you enjoyed it though. Make sure you grab some soon as these only come out 1-2 times per year and are usually quite limited.

I like to smoke an Anejo with Cherry Coke - I know I said it.

Don't knock it until you have tried it.

I like a home made Esspreso or Iced Americano, coke is good as well. The 46 & 77 are the best of the line IMHO.

77 Sharks and 50s are my favorite Anejos. As for pairing, I like Johnny Walker Scotch or soda (I am serious)

Enjoy the Anejo line, they are worth the msrp.
