Drinks That Compliment Cigars
Cognac: Arguably, there is no better drink to combine with a cigar after a meal. Mild and medium-bodied cigars go particularly well with VSOP (Very Special Old Pale) cognacs, which are aged for at least four and a half years. The highest age bracket is XO, standing for Extra Old, and has a minimum ageing requirement of six and a half years, although much older brandies can sometimes be part of the blend.

Scotch: Scotch, especially single-malt, is another good drink to have with cigars. Taken on the rocks, or straight up, scotch will not be overpowered by even a strong cigar, and unlike cognac, you can drink scotch at any time of the day.

Rum: Traditionally, rum and cigars come from a similar geographical area. For this reason, the two things complement each other very well. Still, cheap rum can ruin even the best cigar, accentuating the roughness of the smoke. Therefore, it is important to select the right rum.

Non-alcoholic drinks: As long as you are careful about which drinks you choose, a non-alcoholic drink can be just as pleasurable as a good cognac or single-malt scotch. One of the best non-alcoholic choices is coffee, particularly espresso, as it has strong, complex flavors, which complement the taste of a good cigar. A cup of espresso contains more than 600 different taste characteristics, which makes it an ideal accompaniment to a medium-bodied cigar.

Three Basic Rules for Enjoying a Cigar

  1. Never Inhale! Instead taste it slowly, allowing yourself time to savor the aromas and flavors.

  2. Always light your cigar using wooden matches or a butane lighter. Anything else may give the cigar an unpleasant chemical taste.

  3. Find yourself a drink that complements your cigar of choice.
