Just a question for all the primates in the Jungle! A friend of mine and I were just having a debate about what is the best beverage to drink when smoking a Cigar, if any. I am just curious about what everyone here thinks.

Do you prefer Beer, Wine, Liquor, or nothing at all?

9 out of 10 times I go with coffee. If Im looking to "booze it up" I go with beer. Red wine and cigars don't mix well with me - its the acid in it. After a glass or two my cigar always takes on a acidic taste and it feels like Im coming down with heartburn. Anyone else experience this?

ME TOO!! I love a good IPA, but not with a cigar. Also - lots of people say a cigar with Guiness is good, but I think you need a hint of sweetness, like in a good lager, to bring out a cigars flavor IMHO :)

It really depends on the mood or occassion.

Coffee or tea is good in the morning, on cold days, or at any time really.

Any type of beer must be paired with a med-strong to full bodied cigar IMO. A very hoppy beer can overpower many cigars.

As far as liquors, it again depends on the cigars. The heaviness or lightness of the liquor needs to somewhat match the cigar.

ICAN'TDECIDE! How could you make me pick just one?
I'm afraid I'll have to abstain due to indecision. It just all depends on the stick, the mood, the company. Not necessarily in that order.
If its a BS session with some good friends, definately liquor. If I'm relaxin after dinner, a wine. A morning stick is great with coffee, but sometimes it's good to stay simple and go with water.

Pretty flexible as to what to drink with my cigars, but in no particular order, good cup of coffee, couple of fingers of a good bourbon over ice , and a good Imperial stout such as Old Rasputin.Depends on mood, time of day, the weather,etc. Frank B

yes! actually, a handful of NC cigars do that on their own with me. but i try to stay away from acidic drinks like wine when i'm smoking.

i normally go for (if i can) some diet soda and spiced rum. i would LOVE to try coffee with my cigars, but when i nornally get time to smoke a good cigar, it's late at night.

since i'm over in germany, of course i'm drinking beer with my cigars now... too bad they don't have guiness in most places (except irish pubs) here.
