“I thought this was a solid pairing for casual enjoyment. I don’t think that the cigar and whiskey played off one another in an “exciting” manner, but it was still a pleasant hour and 40 minute experience. The general theme of the flavor profile when paired was earth and wood, but with some moments of spice, cream, fruits, and chocolate. I can understand the primary flavor profile of the pairing given that both the cigar and whiskey, individually, have some more brown sugar and fruity notes. So when brought together they seem to highlight the more savory notes. I would be interested in pairing the whiskey with the Call to Arms from Stolen Throne, as I typically find that more spice, wood, pepper, and earth forward. It may bring out more sweetness and fruits in the pairing.
This cigar is available in the Whiskey & Whitetails“Top 5” Review of Q1 ‘22. As for the whiskey, you may have to make friends with the folks at Stolen Throne Cigars to get your hands on some!”
