This week with the I went with an LCDH Exclusive, paired with some sherried Scotch and an IPA. @ brought snacks - it was a great time!
H. Upmann Royal Robustos
La Casa Del Habanos Exclusivo
52 ring x 135mm (5 1/3”) long
Edmundo, July 2014
Still one of my favorite H. Upmann cigars. I think it’s the Edmundo vitola that makes this one stand out to me. I know they have some newer releases of similar size, but these retain the classic aromas and flavours we know and love from the brand.
The GlenDronach Original 12-Year Old
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Non Chill Filtered & Natural Colour
Matured in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez Sherry Casks, this whisky is quickly becoming a go-to whisky for me, especially as a cigar pairing. Can’t go wrong with this one!
Red Racer IPA
India Pale Ale
6.5% ABV, 80 IBU
Red Racer Micro Brewery
Central City Brewers & Distillers
Surrey, British Columbia, Canada
Another birthday gift beer from my brother. I tried this a few months ago when I was sampling their Across The Nation Collaboration Collection. It’s a potent, Hoppy IPA, that surprisingly works well as a winter warmer, and with food.
