Many people often ask what the best beverage pairing for a cigar is. My personal favourite (the majority of the time) is coffee or espresso. That being said, it completely depends on your settings and particular mood. For instance – a few weeks ago I was travelling with my colleague Ben, who insisted that tap water from the hotel was the best pairing as he was “aiming to get his money’s worth from the room”. Whether you choose to enjoy your cigar with coffee, tea, whisky or cognac – the important thing is that the flavours are complimentary and not in competition.
