What meals compliment your cigar most?

I know alot of people out here enjoy smoking a cigar after a good hearty meal. I personally enjoy doing so. I wanted to know what meals do you guys prefer that go nicely with an after dinner cigar?


Thanks

    eh it depends on the cigar, sometimes ill choose a cigar after a meal that I think will have a pleasant flavor profile to accompany what taste the meal had :) Cheers! - Thomas

    One of my most memberable ones...
    New York Strip
    Red Zin/Tawny Port
    Oliva V...this to me was an outstanding combo.

    to me it doesnt really matter what you had as long as there was a bunch of it.

    I agree with Kuzi.

    However the most memorable combo i had was seasoned prime rib with horseradish, garlic mashed potatos, roasted asparagus, chocolate lava cake all follwed up with a Monte Media Noche.

    Oddly, several of my best cigar experiences have come after eating a honey/whole-grain bagel with cream cheese.

    I don't really have a food pairing when I smoke, it usually is just the mood I'm in. When I do pair food with smokes it's usually lighter meals go with lighter wrappers, and heavier go with darker wrappers, but I'm not saying this in the sense of light and heavy in the stomach but rather lighter and heavier on the pallet.

  • Best cigar/meal combo I've ever had was an 8 oz filet mignon topped with shrimp and crab meat in some amazing sauce, with garlic & herb mashed potatoes, mixed vegetables, and herb-cheddar bread. That, followed by a glass of Dewars 12 scotch and a Padron 64.
