What do you drink with your smoke

firehouseguyfirehouseguy KansasPosts: 987 ✭✭✭✭✭
I know it's probably out there but I'm just curious and sometimes our opinions change.

I've tried red wine but it seems a little too funky tasting with a cigar, so far a good bourbon seems to fit the best
Cigars were made to be smoked, whiskey was made to be drank and women were made to be loved. The only thing I try to age is myself.

    Stouts, porters, whiskey, soda, water, and nothing.

    Since I don't drink.
    Water, Rootbeer, Sarsparilla and sometimes I just drink Pepsi, depending on what cigar it is.
    There is no crisis that a good cigar can't cure.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Coffee in the morning or early afternoon.
    Jarritos tamarind soda or sweet tea.
    Stout or porter, preferably barrel aged. 
    Dark rum, tawny port, Armagnac.
    Scotch or bourbon. 
    I am obviously not picky or stuck on one libation.
    Not the tap water here!

    If you like wine, try a port. They're a bit sweeter and I think go great with a cigar

    Coffee in the morning, Irish Mist on the rocks after that.

    All of the above. Well,......... almost all.  

    Sometimes when I light up, I wait to get a taste of the cigar first before I decide what to pair with it. If I'm lucky, the cigar gets my attention and is tells me "I'm the star of this show" and in that case I go with water or nothing or maybe a lighter tasting whiskey. I don't keep notes so I just wing it every time. 

    Here's a couple of searches I did for you (@firehouseguy) to check out some of our previous similar discussion threads.

    It has to be cold, or it is coffee.

    Well lately it's been scotch. But I do enjoy chia tea or a coffee that's mostly chocolate or a McDonalds mocha frappe.
