Can anyone recommend a good cigar for pairing with Johnny Walker Black? A great while back I had a Glenlivet 12 with a cigar but can't remember which one. What I do remember was how well they went together. The cigar made the fruity flavors of the scotch come though really nicely. The JWB has that smokey sweet flavor going on and would love to pair a cigar with it. I'm open to any other pairing of SM/blends ith cigars also. Thanks.
Pete, being objective, since JHBL is pretty balanced and low on ABV, I would tend to go for a mild cigar too. Are you in the US or not? If you are, I would recommend you to get the Lonsdales from Davidoff or the robusto from Zino. If not - and have access to cuban cigars - my recommendation would be Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleurs or any of Montecristo Open Series, such as Open Junior, Open Regatta or even the Open Eagle.
