|Wrapper:||, Connecticut, Maduro|
Enter the double-fisting monk.
This one probably should have debuted years ago. But…there was just one problem: beer. That’s right, beer. You see, Jonathan Drew is a beer-chugging maniac - he loves the stuff. So one night while knee-deep in the sauce, he came up with the idea of blending cigars to pair with different styles of beer. He immediately put the wheels in motion…but hit one major bump in the road.
Binge drinking is hard. So is precisely pairing tobacco with just one style of beer. But after tons of hard work, and a slew of hangovers, it’s finally time for the masses to reap the benefits. Simply pair each of the following blends with the corresponding style of beer, and watch the fireworks go down. Like a lock and key, they were made for each other.
Hefeweizen – A crisp and smooth Connecticut that’s loaded with nuances of cedar, sweet cream, vanilla, and pepper. Mellow.
Imperial Stout – This dark and rich maduro blend delivers hearty notes of chocolate, coffee, sweetness, and spices. Medium to full.
American IPA – A surprisingly unique profile filled with smoky-sweet notes, and hints of pepper, fruit, and oak. Medium.
Porter – This deep brown-colored maduro offers a toasty tobacco core backed by rich, sweet notes of cocoa, espresso, and honey. Medium.
Triple Belgian – Spicy, complex, and brimming with flavors of earth, fruit, and pepper backed by a warm, rich aroma. Medium to full.
