Some reasonably fine alternatives, then...
Arturo Fuente Opus X Power Rangers matched with a densely sherried Highland malt such as some of the Mortlach issues or the aforementioned Aberlour a'bunadh.
Carlos ToraÃ±o Signature Collection Toros. These really need an exceptionally enlivening pour alongside them. Think Ardbeg, or perhaps a cask strength Lagavulin or Laphroaig.
Carlos ToraÃ±o Tribute Churchill with a balanced, complex Highland whisky. The new Longmorn 16 Year Old (48%ABV) immediately springs to mind.
Oliva Master Blends Torpedo. Booker's Bourbon works wonders with this one.
Another pair of cigars worthy of attention comprises Perdomo's Estate SelecciÃ³n Vintage 1991 Regente and Padron's Serie 1964 Anniversario Imperial (the latter of which had been mentioned previously). These two are perfectly balanced in terms of their flavour profiles, and would go well with a complex, broad taste spectrum Highland malt. Glenlivet Cask Strength NÃ durra maybe?
