If cigars were rock stars

First, I made up my own list. I could’ve gone on forever, but here are 10 more match-ups that I came up with:

  1. ACID = Jimi Hendrix
  2. Arturo Fuente = Bob Dylan
  3. Avo Classic = Frank Sinatra
  4. CAO Italia = Louis Prima
  5. Joya De Nicaragua 1970 Antaño = AC/DC
  6. Macanudo Café = Barry Manilow
  7. Oliva Serie V = Led Zeppelin
  8. Padron Anniversary 1964 Maduro = Nirvana
  9. Rocky Patel Vintage = The Rolling Stones
  10. Tatuaje = Red Hot Chili Peppers

Next, I sent an email around the office asking the regular cigar smokers on the staff to take a shot at it. Some are a bit farfetched, but that’s part of the fun.
