Pairing Comments
This cigar is rich and well rounded; it will pair and hold up to anything substantial, but a contrast pairing with sparkling water will also let the cigar shine.
Final Thoughts
This cigar makes you stop and pay attention, the greatest compliment I could give any cigar... it is 5+ years old and is peaking, with more development to come.. The Connecticut Broadleaf grown in PA is less sweet and a little more peppery than if it had been grown in the CT River Valley. The cigar is elegant and rustic at the same time; very special and highly recommended!!!
