What is the best combination for amplification? ;)
So... I was initially gonna be more verbal, but I will be short now. LOL. I used to drink a lot of chocolate milk with cigars. After reading all the comments from the Non-Alcoholic Drinks post however I gradually switched to plain old iced water. I noticed a huge change in the way I perceived the cigars. Which is expected. However I also noticed that cigars with sweet aftertaste (which i like) actually taste better with some drinks and not as good with others. So I was thinking - if a cigar has a dominant flavor - say sweet chocolate or nut and you want to AMPLIFY that flavor i.e. feel it more and experience it better - do you go with a sweet drink like chocolate milk or with something totally opposite - like a lime gatorade or lemonade? Do drinks with complimentary flavors work better with cigars or drinks with totally opposing flavors? I know that in any case iced water will be the best choice to sample the real flavor of a cigar, but i want to know what i can do to AMPLIFY that flavor, to really notice it, to have it linger for longer, etc... Specific drink/cigar suggestions are also welcome if accompanied by the respective flavor that is being amplified. Thanks!
