Generally, numerous men have appreciated the delights of Padron Cigars as they tasted liquor or whiskey at night. Today, the craft of impeccable pairings has moved into espresso, wine, and even brew.
The initial step to deciding how a beverage will pair with a stogie is to coordinate the body. This implies if it’s a full-bodied stogie, you likely need a full-bodied soul that won’t be overwhelmed by the stogie. At whatever point you pair something, you need them to work in concordance. This implies both the Padron Cigars and the drink stick out, and you can separate between the two.
While choosing a decent beverage to go with your stogie, as a rule, you should attempt to coordinate relative flavors and loads. A full-bodied stogie requires a full-bodied beverage, while increasingly fragile drinks, for example, champagne, while they may in any case work, require a far lighter stogie.
Cognac is the customary, nearly hackneyed, drink to have with cigars. There is a firm contention to state that Cognac is the best pairing of all. A side note to contemplate when purchasing Cognac is the age. If the jug is named with VS (Very Special) at that point you’ll realize this is the most reduced age classification and isn’t one to be overwhelmed by your stogie. VSOP (Very Special Old Pale), which has matured for at least four and a half years is a pleasant choice, to begin with, and can be paired with gentle and medium-bodied cigars.
For instance, if we needed to pair a full-bodied stogie with certain spirits, without realizing the flavor profiles, we could induce that the accompanying drinks may function admirably:
- A strong whiskey like Bookers or a peaty Scotch whiskey like Lagavulin 16.
- A lager with a thick mouthfeel, for example, Guinness, Kilkenny, or Innis and Gunn Rum Finish.
- Wine like a dark red Chianti or a Malbec.
On the off chance that we needed to pair a medium-bodied stogie, we may pick something like:
- A Speyside Scotch whiskey, for example, Glenlivet or Macallan.
- A VSOP Cognac from Hennessy or Remy Martin.
- A flavorful rum like Flor De Cana 12 Year or Diplomatico Reserva.
Then again, if we need to pair a light-bodied stogie with a beverage, we may settle on:
- A youthful red wine, or in a perfect world, white wine or prosecco.
- A gentle Irish bourbon-like 2 Gingers.
- A Calvados (apple cognac, for example, Boulard.
- A Beer like Dos Equis or Corona.
There are special cases to each standard, however in case you’re new to the Padron Cigars you will be smoking, it is in every case best to start by pairing the body of the stogie to the body of the soul.
The explanation the white spirits (Vodka or Gin) don’t function too is that as a rule, the Padron Cigars overwhelms the soul. There are a few special cases, yet in case you’re figuring out how to pair your cigars and spirits, we propose staying with the nuts and bolts from the start.
Yet, truly you as of now utilize your characteristic tasting capacities when you select the dressing to put on a plate of mixed greens or choose which wine to drink with supper. Your sense of taste mentions to you what is directly for you. Furthermore, the more you utilize your feeling of taste, the more refined it becomes. That is the way proficient stogie producers and bourbon distillers build up their skills.
