Default cigars for wine

The World’s First Cigars for Wine Lovers
A South African wine producer has created the world's first cigar designed specifically to complement the flavors of fine red wines.

Dubbed “Series X”, the cigars were launched by producer Mike Ratcliffe under the Vilafonté label – a sideline to the Bordeaux-blend wines (Series C and Series M) made by Ratcliffe in the joint venture with Californian winemaker Zelma Long.

Ratcliffe, who is keen to stress that the cigars are by no means the main focus of the business and “just a bit of fun”, was frustrated by the poor match that cigars make for fine red wine.

“Most are designed to be smoked with a glass of cognac, and murder any wine you drink,” he said. “They just overpower the flavors of fine red wine.”

Red wine and cigars are not an ideal pairing in my book. There's not enough acid in most red wine to compliment a cigar.

Madeira is the best wine with a cigar; that is a pairing made in heaven.
