Received my first box purchase in a couple years - and received it earlier than the expected delivery date Inspired by a discussion on the VHerf. Decided to start with smaller ring, short smokes. Chose a box of H.Upmann Half Coronas and paired it ROTT with a few glasses of Cab Sav. Delish! I have missed my tobacco!

Carl, that's a nice photo. Glad to see you back on track with your cigars. That HUHC is a fine, underated cigar. I bet you won't be able keep your hands of them!

Don't see alot of wine pairings. I love a stick with some SYRAH from Elk Run. A bit expensive but pairs perfect with full bodied sticks that can hold up to it.

great shot Carl...

I don't usually pair cigars with wine, tho...flavors and mouthfeel seem to clash...

obviously, YMMV

I meant the whole taking of pretty pictures of cigars.

But for all I know, that is what he does for a living. Angel

Cacman doesn't sell his lovely photos by the box. They are each one-of-a-kind prints.

Nice, have you ever tried Port with a cigar? That is a wonderful pairing.

Late harvest Zinfandel and late harvest Shiraz are also great.

I love a good Port with a heavy cigar! Pure pleasure.

I am not supposed to drink any carbonated beverages, so I go with wine. I tend to go with the heavier Cabs, blends, and some bourbon barrel aged offerings. Not a big fan of the Zin, Shiraz or Pinot Noir - too light for me. Other than Cabs I mix it up with a few Malbecs. I have also enjoyed a few Petit Verdots from the vineyards in Palisades, CO.
