I met a person from a cigar club here in Louisville at Bourbon's Bistro the other day. We started talking about bourbon and cigars. He believes that bourbon is the best spirit to have with a cigar and says he has tried them all - single malts, ports, cognac, etc... He is of the opinion that your bourbon should be opposite of your cigar i.e. if it is a spicey cigar then a sweeter but flavorfull bourbon like Pappy 15yo should be smoked with it while if it is a milder smoke then something more spicey like Old Grand Dad 114 is more appropriate. Any comments on this yourself?

But as Linn indicated there are many other nuances to consider besides the black and white descriptions we are making here. For instance some of the cigars I smoke are 15 or more years old and not necessarily of the same origin thus reflecting differently in the views and opinions of others.
PM me if ya like -- I'll send you a couple of cigars to experiment with.
