Title: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: akira on 04/04/2009 07:42 PM
Does anybody have any ideas of tequilas that would go well with cigars?  How about any tasty scotch?

I have no idea, but there is a web-site that I know that could help.  The website is called stogieguys.com.  They do spirit and stogie pairing some times, and they have an archive.  Maybe you could find something there.

Johnny Walker Scotch on the rocks or with club soda. I like Johnny Walker Black but JW Red will work too.

For tequilas to match with cigars, I almost exclusively go with anejos. El Diamante del Cielo Anejo is one that I currently have and enjoy another that comes to mind is Corazon Anejo. They are both very tasty and will stand up to a medium bodies cigar that is not maduro. Scotch is something completely different. I mainly drink single malts but will occasional enjoy a blend. A couple off the top of my head that I have are Bowmore 17 year old, Macallen 18 year old, and a Lagavulin 16 year old. They again pair well with cigars that have a natural or sungrown wrapper. Suntory 18 is a great Japanese alternative to Scotch from Scotland. If I am smoking a maduro or some other dark, heavy cigar I will go to rum or bourbon everytime. For rum try Zaya. It is my favorite drink to pair with a nice maduro cigar. Hope that helps some. :biggrin:

Johnny Walker is a blended scotch.

I found a good single malt called Highlands, it's about 35 a bottle.

There is one tequila that I really like to sip w/a cigar. It is called Ora Azul/Anejo. Dark, rich and has a very slight sweet taste and oh so very smooooooooooth!!  :drinking:

My day-to-day scotch is Dewars. It's not fancy, but I have yet to find anything it didn't go with. For the "heavy guns", I like Macallan and Glenfiddich for most general purpose smoking, and Lagavulin for ballbuster full bodied cigars.

These days, though, my favorite cigar booze is rum, neat. I like Bacardi Anejo. I have some Haitian (Barbancourt?) rum I also like. And I -- ahem -- receive a bottle of ISOM rum as gift and it is some of the smoothest, nicest sipping rum I've ever had. Goes great with any cigar.

Two tequilas I like with cigars are Patron Platinum ($$$) and Dos Lunas (not expensive, and excellent).  The Dos Lunas is one that anyone should try.  For the tequila lover it offers something very different, while my non-tequila-drinking friends find it palatable and smooth.

Post by: FNA on 12/14/2009 08:44 PM
Screw all these super-premium tequilas that are sucking up all the blue agave and driving the price of cheap mixto tequilas up. And that goes double for 'foodies' who now have on the market sweetener made from the agave.

Tequila blanco, aged six weeks, is the gasoline to run my engine.

Hey, anybody try the Drew Estate Sauza infused cigars?  I couldn't be drunk enough to recommend these.

Don Julio Anejo is some pretty decent tequila that won't break the bank.

Still, I would rather go with whiskey, cognac or rum with a cigar

It's not the premium tequilas that are using it up.  The supply is decreasing. The agave farmers are getting out of it to grow crops for food and biofuels:

Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: calvarez on 12/15/2009 10:25 AM
Those of you who like scotch and not tequila should try to find a way to sample Dos Lunas (any variety, but Anejo is nices).  This is a scotch drinker's tequila.  It starts out complex and slightly woody, without the tequila flavor, then finishes with a light tequila after-taste.  All of the people I know who hate tequila love this one.  Took it to a party the other day where there were a lot of Scotch drinkers, and the entire bottle lasted less than an hour.  The flavor is on the lighter side and it goes well with medium-range cigars.

Hey Mike,

Iíve never really paried a cigar with tequila, I have to try it.  Scotch, on the other hand, pairs excellent with cigars.  (Also, a good bourbon pairs well also,  my favorite bourbon is Woodford Reserve, amazing!).  Back to Scotch, Jwalker black is great, JWalker Blue is freakiní amazing.  Glenfiddich and blvanie are great single malts.  Happy pairing!
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: calvarez on 12/15/2009 11:00 AM
Most tequilas don't work well with cigars, IMO.  Dos Lunas is the exception.
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: NES Tek on 12/16/2009 09:32 AM
Sounds like Cos Lunas is something to look out for. You've got my interest.  :dancing:
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: DennisA on 12/16/2009 01:38 PM
At ~$40+, Dos Lunas is in the range of some very good single malts and bourbons.
While I really do like good tequila, IMHO I just can't see it going as well with a cigar as 12yo Aberlour or Evan Williams Single Barrel.
That said, I try to keep an open mind, so I'll keep an eye out for Dos Lunas, to give it a try.
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: calvarez on 12/17/2009 07:41 AM
I suppose it depends on how you look at things like drinks/foods/cigar flavors and how you define "as well."  My view is that I like variety.  I don't have a favorite Scotch, a favorite cigar, or a favorite food.  I have a long list of items in every category that I like, and I like mixing them in different ways.  I'm of the opinion that something new and good is more interesting than having the same great thing every day.

as far as tequila, i almost always buy Don Julio Anejo. It's a little pricey but it's one of the tastiest liquors out there IMO.

When I think of Scotch, I think of Scotland which makes me think of plaid which leads to me thinking about Catholic girls which means I have to listen to some Zappa and besides, a 17 year old Catholic girl got my buddy jailed...

I prefer straight bourbon whisky or a good ol' sourmash.  As for tequila, Patron Silver for me.  Two shots, no training wheels!

I like that one, and Patron Anejo is really smooth as well.  The best one I ever had was given to me as a Christmas gift:  Casa Noble Anejo 2 Yr, but it runs about $90 a bottle.

This thread excites me...I can't wait to go back to St. Thomas and grab me another box of spirits there when we go on our yearly Caribbean cruise.  Their top of the line spirits...Vodka, Scotch, Tequila, Drambuie are so cheap I feel like I'm robbing the place when I go there.  I know we have to let the cruiselines store all of them except for what I sneak on the boat but when I get curbside in Ft. Lauderdale with boxes of Liquor...it's like a kid at Christmas.  12 Bottles of the best spirits cost less than $200 and these same bottles in the states would run well over $500 easy.

I did the same thing last year after our cruise.  By the time I shipped everything via UPS to my home in Washington, I could have just gone to the local liquor store for what it cost me.   :confused:

Glenlivet single malt is a good scotch to enjoy a cigar with.
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: Vanilla Gorilla on 08/15/2010 11:47 AM
Here in Ontario our Tequila selection is pretty small. I've really enjoyed bottles of EL JIMADOR TEQUILA 100% AGAVE BLANCO. Moderately priced (in my opinion anyways) at 33$ for a 26er (keep in mind, in Canada our booze is taxed 50%!!!!)  

Here are the tasting notes

Crystal clear water white colour; delicate aromas of citrus, with notes of melon and spice; smooth, softly textured, shows a hint of fruit sweetness on the palate, slightly rustic, with flavours of citrus and cucumber, notes of light pepper and spice on the finish.

I'd recommend the product to anyone, very smooth, and went very well with a little bit of lime juice and a quick Guantanamera Company cigar

I had my first single malt scotch last night: Glenlivet 12 Year Single Malt Scotch.

It was AMAZING. I was at a Shriner's Fund-Raising Gala (my gf does their website in SA) and thought this was the perfect time to try it in case I didn't like it... you know, I didn't want to have a bottle of stuff around I couldn't drink.
O.M.G. That stuff was amazing. I can't wait to have a strong cigar and a big glass of that stuff together.

JWB can also be Johnny Walker Blue Label , a blend of extremely rare  whiskies, aged at least 25 years, and considerably more expensive then the Black Label (about $20 a shot in a bar, about $150/750ml in duty free stores and about $500 for (if you can find it) a bottle Blue Label George V.

I've seen it on the shelves, but have never tried it.  It is a value-priced Tequila.  However, I do know that it is one of the more popular Tequilas in Mexico.  Tequila doesn't age once it is bottled, so no need to sit on it any longer.  Crack it open and enjoy!

Bryan, you must be drinking the wrong Tequila!  There are some very fine sipping tequilas out there that are so good that I wouldn't even think of using them for shots or polluting them with salt or a lemon.  But, like Scotch, these tend to be a bit pricier and sometimes harder to find.  True, I have never found a "sipping" tequila for less than $40/bottle, but a good bottle will last longer because you're not doing it as shots or using it as a mixer.  

If you decide to spring for it, try an Anejo.  The two that I can personally recommend are: Patron Anejo (about $45) and Casa Noble Anejo 2 Yr (about $60-80).

I presume your snide remark is not directed at all of us Patron drinkers, since many of us that sip and savor it find it to be an enjoyable, high-end liquor that pairs well with a good cigar, and that is what we are all here to discuss in this particular forum, right?

Anyone "taking shots" of Patron is either inexperienced or immature (or both) and clearly inexperienced with good tequila.  If the shooters think they are 'living the life', then they are just the showoffs and are wasting good liquor, IMHO.

Patron is the most readily-available and easily recognizable great tequila.  Others are better--to some people.  Others are even cheaper and better.  But Patron is still very good, and easily obtained and recognized.

For those who were talking about the flavor of tequila being offensive, if you enjoy Scotch, then you just have to try Dos Lunas Anejo.  People I know who hate tequila love this.
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: Ken Kelley on 09/23/2010 08:13 AM
One of the food shows had an episode about Mexican food a few nights ago.  There was a segment on how tequila is made.  With the amount of labor involved, there is no mystery about why the premium tequilas cost so much.  It's quite a process, way too lengthy for a succinct description.
Title: RE: Tequila and Scotch
Post by: whodeeni on 09/23/2010 10:44 AM
I stopped drinking Patron in 2005. One night I went out to celebrate how things were
going in my business w/ my brother. We started out drinking shots of patron and
chasing them with Corona's 2 shots and 2 corona's later we went to a lounge
across the street....

We continued drinking shots and chasing them w/ corona's until i was about 5 shots
in. I got very aggressive, started feeling on others guys girlfriends, and threatening
this one guy that was hitting on this girl that i'd picked up in the lounge. Now normally
my brother is the rowdy one but it was the other way around this particular night!

After that the only time i've had patron was in a margarita!:biggrin:


On another note i was in NYC last Sept and went to a barbecue. The couple hosting
were Dominican and when it came time for shots they brought out Tres Generations
Anejo. You talk about the smoothest, richest, best tasting tequila i've ever drank!

It's about $50-60/btl you guys should really check it out!

The comment wasn't directed towards anyone on this forum. It was directed at the douche bags who hang out at the bars and get stupid, and think Patron is the greatest thing ever created. To each there own and all that, but people don't have to be retarded about it. While Patron might be good Tequila, again I don't know, I'm still pretty sure it's not the best so there is no need to try to impress others around you by bragging about how you're taking shots of Patron.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents and a general comment about the idiots in the bars around my local area.
