Cigars + Whiskey = Happiness.
Cigars and whiskey have been a classic pairing for centuries. But now, there is a line of cigars whose blend is crafted specifically to pair with certain whiskeys. The brainchild of C & C Cigars, Dram Cigars for Whiskey offers four different blends, each one with a different flavor profile and strength, but all of them created with the perfect pairing in mind. This particular offering is dubbed, Dram Cask #1.
Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Dram Cask #1 was blended for the purpose of being paired with a lighter whiskey with notes of citrus and wood. With that in mind, #1's binder and filler tobaccos are left undisclosed, but a Connecticut shade wrapper leaf is on display, giving off smooth notes of cream, spicy wood, and an aromatic herbal nuance. Mellow to medium-bodied, Dram Cask #1 is a pleasure to enjoy with or without a pairing partner, although, I prefer the former.
