Rum & Cigars

Few things go together better than a glass of good rum and the right cigar, except maybe more rum.

Yes, your description is right on, SuperCorona. The body is light enough to be an afternoon cigar, with enough flavor to stand up after a meal in the evening. I am going to try your suggestion of Clement VSOP.cigar.gif

just saw this thread. i smoke all of petes stuff. the la riquezas are really good. if you get a chance to snag a noella reserva, do it, they are awesome. i finished off my bottle of flor de cana 12 y o with these cigars. something about nica tobacco and nica rum, they go well together.

Default Hi Gang....been awhile!!!!!

I am going to promise myself to catch up on all the rum news in the next few days but I'll start here!

First...I am alive and well, still smoking and drinking. LOL!

Second; I had a La Requezea double corona recently (two, in fact) and let me say they are one of the best new smokes of the year. Unlike the earlier releases, these are NOT box pressed.

I'll review it later, but for now, let's just say....smoke 'em if you got 'em. They are delicious! Powerful, complex, they have all the good notes and flavors of a top vitola. CA rated them 87.....a gross under-rating imo, and should be ignored. Wonderful cigar that Pete Johnson nailed square n the head. They are different than the box pressed.

Yes, it's a cabinet selection. My local supplier (J&J Cigars, Seattle) says he can't keep them in stock. I bought a handful after I smoked my sample stick, and may have to buy a box. That's an oddity for me because I am not normally a fan of such big cigars.

hank, I agree with you that Appleton 12 yo has the qualities to blend with a wide range of cigars, even if I have to cheat once and a while and add a touch of ginger beer or press the drink with a few drops of water. I also found that my Mount Guay1703 has similar characteristics that allow me to blend my drink to complement my cigars. Specially these days where everyone is telling me to get away from my Cubans and explore Dominicans. I wont tell you that some nights in the hot tub that I don't cheat and soak up with a fine R&J or Bolivar with a small 3 finger of rum
