Anyone here ever had a cigar and beer that went so well together you hate to have them apart? Here's a few I've discovered over the years

*Bolivar Fuerte Cuban Corona & Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale

*HdM Excalibur Prensado & Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout

And a summer favorite that everyone should try.....

*CAO eXtreme corona & Bell's Oberon

Cheers,

Shawn

i'm still trying to find the exact perfect match for a Guiness. The closest I think I've come to perfection is a ERDM Robusto Larga.

But I'm certainly willing to keep experimenting.

JR Ult #1 goes well with Guiness. IMHO

The perfect match for a Guiness, IMHO, is a punch/hoyo mm roth.

The Cohiba Siglo 1 goes quite nicely with a Fat Tire Amber Ale.

The Bolivar Corona Junior and Petite Corona are well-matched with a Shiner Bock.

Dundee's Honey Lager is the perfect complement to a Hoyo Short Corona as well as a Bolivar Royal Corona.

And, finally, a Bud light is perfect with a Phillies Blunt.

Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout is my favorite obtainable beer howevere it ain't a summer beer for me. I drink whisky with the stronger ISOMS.

I had a Guiness with a CAO Extreme Belicoso for the Super Bowl...outstanding combination. I like just about any maduro with a Guiness.

Guinness with just about any heavy maduro smoke.

Ales/lagers need something more like a José Martí nic smoke.
