Cigars, Spirits, and the Hedonistic Pursuit of Flavor
Smoking a cigar is a conversation. The exact topic (flavor) may vary slightly over the course of the conversation, but the only way to get the most out of the experience is to approach it with an open mind and a willingness to learn something new. Be present in the moment.
Drinking a wine or spirit is like reading an old book. The words don’t change, but as your palate matures you pick out new interesting details you didn’t notice the first time around.
Therefore a pairing of a cigar and a drink is like being in a book club. You’re conversing with the cigar about your favorite lines of the spirit to discover new and exciting details.
