    Mine is usually cigar/bourbon or cigar/scotch or cigar/craft beer  :p

    Recently I've found ginger beer goes excellent with a strong spicy smoke. The bite from the ginger really complements those kind of sticks well. You can add a finger or two of stoly or ketel 1 for a little more kick. Other than that I love cold brewed coffee with a bit of chicory, whole milk, and a teaspoon of cane sugar to take away any bitterness. It delicious.

    Peter, have you tried a nice cup of black tea w/ a cigar? I have recently been made aware of the deliciousness there

    I have actually become pretty fond of pairing with root beer.

    Try making a Dark and Stormy; substitute rum and some lemon juice for the vodka in the ginger beer and you have a delicious drink!

    First of all, welcome to the forums! Second of all, I heartily second your pairing of the JDN Cabinetta and a café con leche - absolutely one of my favorite combinations. Now, try that with the addition of a chocolate souffle a la mode, and you will experience utter bliss.

    As for your original question, I really enjoy the Perdomo2 habano with a tawny port, but I couldn´t tell you one in particular off the top of my head.

    +1 to the pairing with Port! Fortified wine, for the win!
