Rum & Cigars

Few things go together better than a glass of good rum and the right cigar, except maybe more rum.

While its a bit old, I felt I needed to weigh in on this topic. I'm a big pipe smoker and LOVE virginia blends. My favorites are from McClelland, GL Pease, and Samuel Gawith. I do agree that the sweetness of the VA tobacco goes very well with the sweetness of the rum. Perhaps one of my favorite pairings is Orlik Golden Sliced and Ron Zacapa XO.

For any of you that dabble in pipe smoking, I highly recommend trying VA blends. If you can't find any decent blends close to you, feel free to IM me and I'll get a little sampler your way.

I have just started smoking a pipe recently too, Finding it very different from the cigar. I am mainly using flavoured tobacco at the minute, and cigars if I take a fancy to a more familiar taste! The only problem I am finding is not lighting the pipe, but keeping it lit, Practise makes perfect I suppose?

I took up the pipe just before Christmas. Started off with the flavoured stuff like vanilla and cherry but have gone off it now. I'm absolutely hooked on Amphora full aroma....lovely especially with a nice glass of Havana Club barel proof!
Also enjoy smoking Clan and holland house but Amphora's definitely one to ty
