Whiskey pairing perfection.
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 #2.
Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Dram Cask #2 was blended for the purpose of being paired with whiskey with a medium body that boasts notes of spice and wood. With that in mind, #2’s binder and filler tobaccos are left undisclosed, but a Cuban-seed Corojo wrapper leaf is on display, giving off hearty notes of black cherry, pepper, and a woodsy natural sweetness. Medium-bodied, Dram Cask #2 is a pleasure to enjoy with or without a pairing partner, although, I prefer the former.
