The only difficulty I had with this cigar was deciding whether to pair it with bourbon or whiskey. The sweets in the name had me thinking bourbon, but the smokiness of the fire cured tobaccos had me thinking whiskey might be better. I decided to go with the bourbon and was not disappointed in the slightest. The sweetness of the bourbon played right into the sweeter notes of the stick while delivering balance to the smokiness of the fire cured tobaccos. I ll be pairing this smoke with whiskey before the week is through!
