Scotch & Cigar Pairings to Try
Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran, we hope you’ll dig these pairings. We sure do.
1. Montecristo Classic No. 2 with Macallan 12 Year
We’re starting off with a Prestige gang fave. We think you’ll enjoy this pairing immensely. You’ll get the fruit-forward nose, palate, and finish of the Macallan. Pair it with the cinnamon and nutmeg of the Montecristo, and you’ll be in a flavor palace.
We highly recommend the duo. It’s great by the firepit in the backyard. (Speaking from personal experience, of course.)
2. Flathead Steel Horse with Laphroaig Quarter Cask
The bitter notes of coffee and dark chocolate make the Flathead Steel Horse pure excellence, even on its own. Put it with the sweet and peaty Quarter Cask and get ready for outright divinity. Both of these bring a complexity that will mesmerize you. Rich and smoky.
We say, don’t do this one alone. Phone a friend at this round. There’s so much to say. You’ll go crazy thinking it all. You’ll want to express what you’re tasting (and feeling) when you sit down with this match made in heaven.
3. La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial with Johnnie Walker Black
The La Aroma de Cuba Edicion Especial reminds us of the great outdoors. It’s leathery. And we even taste the trees themselves (cedar in particular). Goes great with Johnnie Walker Black and all that nuttiness and fruit. You’re breathing and swallowing the earth here, partners.
We lean on this pairing when we’re looking for a lot of bang for our buck. Budget-friendly and deeply satisfying. Give it a whirl, why don’t ya?
