Famous Smoke: Cigar & Wine Pairing

We love Cabernets. There we said it. Sometimes you really don’t want that pour of whiskey your buddy insists gets ordered for the table. Sometimes, you’re not looking to take down a 20oz of PBR (more than likely ordered by the same guy). Sometimes, a nice pour of a chalky, floral Cabernet Sauvignon will do – paired of course, with the proper cigar. Now, we could sit down and write on the various pairings, the notes, the grapes, the taste but we aren’t the professionals – but our friends at Famous Smoke Shop are.

Created in partnership with Drizly, one of the leading online liquor retail stores, the pairing guide offers expert picks spanning 72 popular cigar and wine combinations with concise descriptions in an easy-to-use interface. All of the recommended cigar and wine pairings were judiciously chosen by the experts at Famous Smoke Shop and Drizly and feature cigars selected from both major and boutique manufacturers, while the wines extend to international and domestic varietals.
