You're drinking amazing rum and losing at online video games to mouthy 13-year-olds.

Video game competition has changed. In your day, you would playfully banter with the person you’re competing against, while sitting a joystick wire’s distance away. Now you play online, and faceless teenagers call you names that you’d have to google to be offended by. No matter. He’s likely drinking something neon and carbonated, while you sip good rum and smoke an Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado. You’ve already won. But feel free to shoot the little bastard in the back anyways.

Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado

MSRP: $14.35  |  Other Oliva Cigars

"If you're normally a whiskey guy, but are ready for a rum that can hang, this is your pairing. Brugal spends time in American Oak barrels, giving it a unique flavor that is normally found in Bourbons. Pair that up with the full-flavored Oliva Serie V Melanio and you've got a pairing that will keep your taste buds at attention all night long.
