Rum & Cigars

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

Talking Rum N Cigars

Where are the cigar lovers? I posted some new pairings the other day, but posted it under an old thread and it was buried quickly. You can find it under the Rum and Cigar thread under rum questions/discussions, if you are interested.

I am here! Just signed on to the board so I am still reading the old posts. But, just so you know, there is a cigar lover here.

So am I...as a newly registered user to this forum I am an avid cigar smoker and am part owner of the largest UK cigar forum as well. We often discuss rums on our forum but I will now recommend our members to join this one as well

I absolutely love pairing cigars and rum and the forum I co-own in the UK for cigar smokers often looks at spirits and Havanas

Howdy, I've only had cubans while diving in the Caribbean. I don't know anything about "legal" cigars. Please post reports so I might learn something. Rum & Cigars, don't get muck better.

Default Rum and Cigars

I would like to know more, too, about the pairing two of my favorite things. I would also welcome any and all cigar recommendations. I've been smoking for quite a while and have my favorites, but I'm still pretty much a neophyte. On top of that, I'd like to try as many different cigars (and rums for that matter) as I am able to find.
My best friend is returning from Iraq in about a month. Any suggestions on what rum and cigar pairing best says "Welcome home"?

Default Rum and cigars

Hello gentlemen,
If you search through the entries in rum questions and discussions, you will find some info on cigars and rum pairings that I have posted in the past. These of course are my opinions, and they are subjective as to my tastes.
In that aspect, like rum, everyone has their own preferences as to what type of cigar they like. I post mine to get opinions and other ideas from other rum and cigar lovers so can try their pairings. As far as non cubans go, let me know what type of cigar you like and I can give you some ideas about what cigars you might like to try. They vary according to the region, i.e., the DR, Honduras, Nicaragua, etc., as do the blends and the wrappers. I love cubans also, but I am not able to smoke as many as I would like for obvious reasons. I will continue to post pairings as I go along. It is much trial and error, as either the rum and the cigar can complement each other, or one can overwhelm the other. Sometimes the rum enhances the cigar, but the rum loses flavor, or vice versa. That is what makes this so enjoyable, is the search for a great pairing!!

Please do! I do have some cubans, which are my overall favorites, but I have to spread them out so I dont smoke them too quickly. I would love to try your suggestions.

I find that one of my all time favourite Cubans, the Juna Lopez number 2, pairs very well with sweeter rums like Doorlys XO or the Zacapas. The sweetness of the rum goes well with the vegetal, almost grassy undertones of the Juan Lopez. This brand has to be closest in profile to really fresh rolled cigars straight from the table
