Season 2 Episode 14 San Cristobal Prophet Paired With Akashi Ume

Season 2 Episode 13 Padron Series 1926 No. 47 Maduro Paired With Tullibardine 12 YO Scotch
Season 2 Episode 13 Padron Series 1926 No. 47 Maduro Paired With Tullibardine 12 YO Scotch
This was my first time trying Tullibardine and it was a welcome surprise. It was very good and paired well with the Padron 1926 Maduro. Tullibardine is a Highlands scotch and this offering is aged a minimum of 12 years. It was very light with only a touch of peat and literally no smoke, think Glenfiddich, Glenmorangie, or Glenlivet. And what do I need to say about the Padron 1926, it was an excellent smoke that paired well with this scotch. You should definitely try them, CHEERS!

Season 2 Episode 12 Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Paired With Talisker 10-Year Old Scotch
Season 2 Episode 12 Rocky Patel Vintage 1992 Paired With Talisker 10-Year Old Scotch
I am normally a low peat, low smoke scotch drinker sticking mainly with Speysides or Highland offerings but wanted to try Talisker from the Isle of Skye. Aside from a little more smoke and char than I like there were some very positive attributes to the Talisker and it did pair very well with the RP Vintage 1992. Have a listen and tell me what you think, CHEERS!

Season 2 Episode 11 Oliva Serie V Melanio Paired Wtih Johnnie Walker Green Label
This was an exceptional pairing that profiles married together very well. Johnnie Walker is one of my favorite scotches. I am also a fan of Oliva, they make some very good cigars. This almonds and cocoa of the stick melded very well with the light fruitiness of the Green Label. This is a definite must try to add to your list, CHEERS!

Season 2 Episode 10 Macanudo Inspirada Red Label Paired With Jack Daniels Single Barrell Rye
This was a very good pairing that brought a touch of sweetness but an excellent spiciness. This was my first Macanudo and it was a wonderful stick and the JD Single Barrell Rye has a dedicated spot on my shelf. You must try these.

This episode I pitted Buffalo Trace against Weller Special Reserve. The topic of their lineage comes up in conversation from time to time and I through it would interesting to do a side-by-side taste test.

Season 2 Episode 7 Drew Estate Java Maduro Paired With Yuengling Hershey's Chocolate Porter
This was a very good pairing. The stick is one of my favorites and the beer was good but not great. Together they did produce a very dessert type pairing.

Season 2 Episode 5 Camacho Nicaraguan Barrel Aged Paired With Garrison Bros Honeydew
These two offered a subtle sweetness that blended very well. The Camacho was a mild-medium smoke that produced a wonderful palate and had great smoke output. The Garrison Bros. Honeydew was just kissed with a honey flavor and sweetness, not too much. They paired wonderfully together. A definite try, CHEERS!

Season 2 Episode 2 Padron Presidente Paired WIth Jack Daniels Single Barrel Rye
Today's pairing was about spice! Both these two offered good doses of spice with the Rye offering a good touch of bananas, caramel, and cherries to sweeten it up just enough. Both the stick and the spirit are a must try, CHEERS! #cigar #cigars #cigarpairing #cigarandbourbon #cigarandwhiskey #cigarandscotch #whiskey #scotch #bourbon #cigarlife #bourbonlife #scotchlife #rum #rumlife #cigaraficionado #whiskeypairing #scotchpairing #pairing #wine #port #cognac #brandy #dessertwine #cocktails #botl #chocolate #tiki #drinks #cigarlife #cigaraficionado #singlemalt #winepairing #vodka #sotl #tasting #beer #scotchwhisky #truffle #tequila #cigarsnob #bar #honey #cocktail #cigaroftheday #cocktails #dietcocktails #dietmargs #dietmargarita #margarita #cigarsonice #cigarsandrum #cigarsandbourbon #cigarsnlife #cigarsforwarriors #cigarslover #cigarsclub #cigarsandcoffee #cigarsdaily #cigarsmoker #cigarsociety #cigarsnob #cigarsofinstagram #cigarstagram #luxury #cigarlounge #boutiquecigar

Season 2 Episode 1 Buffalo Trace Paired With CAO Brazilia
Season Two's first pairing presents two very well-known names. Together these two were a very good match with palates and aromas that complimented very well. Individually they were good but not outstanding. Definitely worth the price point.

This was an exciting pairing! The Heaven's Door Decade Series Release No. 1 is an excellent whiskey and maybe one of the best I have ever tried. It married well with the smooth profile of the Rocky Patel Sixty. These are a must try/must own combination. CHEERS!!

This was a GREAT pairing! Thank you so much to John (aka Andy) from Andy's Flour Power Bistro in Panama City Beach, FL for hooking me up with this amazing cigar. And as usual the GJ married very well to it. There was a subtle sweetness, caramel, coffee, oh, couldn't get enough.

Episode 41 Joya de Nicaragua Antano 1970 Paired With Glenfiddich 12-Year Old Single Malt Scotch
This was an excellent pairing and one that would be a great starting point for a novice just getting into spirits and cigars. The Joya had a simple yet elegant profile that was an easy and enjoyable smoke. The Glenfiddich is a Speyside Single Malt that is itself a fairly simple profile with basically no smoke or peat, just an enjoyable sipping scotch. You should definitely try these together and keep them on your shelf, CHEERS! #cigars #cigar #scotch #whiskey #whisky #cigarpairing

This week's pairing was very solid and an enjoyable experience. Neither profile was too complex as to overwhelm the other.

Episode 37 Ashton ESG 20-year Salute Paired With Crown Royal Vanilla
This was a surprisingly good pairing. Both had simple yet refined profiles that married together splendidly. The ESG was almost totally aged tobacco on the palate with a hint of caramel or sweetness in the final half that went very well with the creamy vanilla of the Crown. You should try these two together, CHEERS!

Episode 36 Deadwood Sweet Jane Paired With Horse Soldier Bourbon
Episode 36 Deadwood Sweet Jane Paired With Horse Soldier Bourbon
I thought this would be a good pairing and I was wrong, it was GREAT! Just the right amount of sweet and spice. Horse Soldier is excellent bourbon, I really enjoyed it. The Sweet Jane may not be in the purist's wheel house but for those willing to try different things it is an excellent stick that is well worth the modest price. You should definitely give these a try, CHEERS! #cigars #cigar #whiskey #whisky #bourbon

Episode 35 Arturo Fuente Rosado Sun Grown Paired With Knob Creek 9 Year
Episode 35 Arturo Fuente Rosado Sun Grown Paired With Knob Creek 9 Year
This was a very good pairing. The AF Rosado was an excellent cigar that I thoroughly enjoyed. The Knob Creek was equally good but at 100 Proof probably needed to be paired with a more Full Flavored cigar as it over powered the stick until I added a teaspoon of water to dial it back just a little. But, that did not curtail the excellent palate on this spirit. A must try on both these, CHEERS!

Episode 30 Plasencia Alma del Fuego and Glenmorangie Original
The Plasencia Alma del Fuego is a wonderful cigar that has a simple yet awesome profile.  That simplicity blends with with Highland scotch such as Glenmorangie.  The Original 10 Year is a very good entry level scotch for the beginner or old salt and goes well with the del Fuego.  CHEERS! #cigar #cigars #cigarpairing #cigarandbourbon #cigarandwhiskey #cigarandscotch #whiskey #scotch #bourbon #cigarlife #bourbonlife #scotchlife #rum #rumlife #cigaraficionado #whiskeypairing #scotchpairing #pairing #wine #port #cognac #brandy #dessertwine #cocktails #botl #chocolate #tiki #drinks #cigarlife #cigaraficionado #singlemalt #winepairing #vodka #sotl #tasting #beer #scotchwhisky #truffle #tequila #cigarsnob #bar #honey #cocktail #cigaroftheday #cocktails #dietcocktails #dietmargs #dietmargarita #margarita #cigarsonice #cigarsandrum #cigarsandbourbon #cigarsnlife #cigarsforwarriors #cigarslover #cigarsclub #cigarsandcoffee #cigarsdaily #cigarsmoker #cigarsociety #cigarsnob #cigarsofinstagram #cigarstagram #luxury #cigarlounge #boutiquecigar

Episode 28 Bellas Artes Maduro Paired With The Dalmore 15 Year Old Scotch
My love affair with The Dalmore Single Malt Scotch continues!  This offering is the 15 year and is paired with a Bellas Artes by AJ Fernandez.  I have never tried a AJF and the Bellas Artes was a great cigar to start with.  The cold draw was 100% chocolate cake with no icing, it was delicious.  And The Dalmore paired beautifully with notes of oranges, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Definitely worth an hour to try it.  Cheers!!

Episode 10 Punch Bareknuckle Paired With Boondocks American Whiskey
The Punch Bareknuckle was a very good cigar.  The Boondocks was good but nothing spectacular jumped out at me.  I believe it may have gotten the lowest whisky stone score I have ever given.  As I said it was not bad and if someone offered it to me I would not turn it down, it just didn't sit well on my palate.  Cheers!

Episode 20 La Gloria Cubana Estelli and Flor de Cana 7 year old
I have to say this has to be one of my best pairings.  I have always enjoyed rum but more in the cocktail sense.  Taking the time to sip it neat you really do find all the subtle island nuances you miss when it is mixed with tons of sugar and fruit juice.  I will definitely be doing more rum pairings in the future.  Flor de Cana is most assuredly one of the best rums I have ever tasted.  I will have to experiment with their older agings. This episode I was still in my production infancy so the sound quality was not that great.  But it does give good benchmarks to see the improvements you make along the way.  I hope you enjoy, cheers!

This was an excellent pairing and I was the first world wide to do a pairing video on the Rocky 60.  The profiles were an excellent match and I would recommend these two individually and together.  They both rated 5.0 match sticks and 5.0 whiskey stones.

Episode 22 Oliva Serie V Melanio Paired With Woodford Reserve Straight Rye
Episode 22 Oliva Serie V Melanio Paired With Woodford Reserve Straight Rye
The Oliva Serie V Melanio is a 94-rated cigar that has a wonderful smoking profile.  It pairs very well with Rye, which is a spicy spirit.  The Woodford Reserve Straight Rye not only has a rye spiciness but also notes of apples, pears, and vanilla that make it a very good pairing for the Melanio.

Episode 21 - Don Pepin Garcia Original Paired With Balcones Tru Blue Corn Whisky
Episode 21 - Don Pepin Garcia Original Paired With Balcones Tru Blue Corn Whisky
Today's pairing is partially due to the sudden shortage we seem to have in lots of different products.  I was going a different direction with the spirit for today's episode but then find out that it is backordered for a week or more so I had to do some digging and come up with a suitable alternative.  Well.....I managed to do it!  I came out with Balcones Tru Blue 100 Straight Corn Whisky and it was a winner.  The Tru Blue is made from a mash bill of 100% roasted blue corn and is 100 proof.  It was a great match for the Pepin Blue Label.  I really enjoyed this pairing and I hope you do too.
