Great Drinks to Have With a Cigar

Soda and cigars is a surprisingly fantastic combination. Try smoking your favorite cigar, and then smoking it while drinking a good carbonated soda. For whatever reason, soda magnifies the taste of a cigar. Try pairing a light cigar with a light soda, such as a carbonated lemon or orange soda pop. If you enjoy smoking heavier, full bodied cigars, you may want to try pairing a soda that is a little darker, like a pepsi or coke.

If you enjoy pipe tobacco cigars, you will want to complement the sweet taste and nice aromas with a sweet drink. Preferably something non-carbonated. A lemonade or type of juice will suffice. A non carbonated sugary beverage will complement a pipe tobacco cigar much better than something carbonated, because the carbonation in a drink makes things seem more spicy. You don't want your sweet smelling and tasting cigar to be spicy.

Try contrasting your cigars with drinks that taste the opposite of how the cigar tastes. If you have a creamy cigar, try drinking a spicy drink, such as a spiced rum, or spicy v8. If that sounds gross, don't try it. If you enjoy a leathery cigar, have a sweet port. This sweet drink will mix well with a bold cigar.

Whiskey is another popular drink that cigar smokers enjoy. A smokey whiskey will go well with just about any cigar out there. The woodiness of the whiskey combined with the nuttiness of certain cigars will really add something to the cigar. Try drinking some whiskey with different cigars, there are many combinations out there and they're ready to be tried by you.

Coffee is another favorite drink of cigar smokers. The taste of coffee pairs very nicely with a fine cigar. The flavors of the cigar and the undertones of the coffee are similar. Just like with any other drink, you should try different coffees with different cigars. Since every cigar and every type of coffee is different, there's only one way to find out which combinations are good, and which combinations bad.

It's important to try and pick a drink that won't be overpowered by the taste of the cigar. The drink should complement the flavor, not ruin it. You'll have to try different combinations to find what you like, but the suggestions above are a great place to start.

Once you've found a drink that you enjoy, don't stop mixing and matching! There are thousands of combinations out there that involve different drinks and different cigars. Don't stop until you've tried them all. Or at least tried a few.

How to Store Your Cigars
The first thing to think about when preparing to store your cigars is to decide how big of a humidor you will need.

If you do have a large collection, then a walk in humidor might just be for you. Different humidors are good for different people. If you only ever have one cigar at a time, then you should invest in a cigar...

From Tobacco to Cigar
Cigars are not green, but the leaves they come from are. In order to get the cigar tobacco to turn brown, a process called fermentation is used. Fermentation isn't just for turning greens brown, however. It is mostly used to mellow out the taste of the tobacco. Fermentation also removes some of the nicotine that was in the cigar leaf. The bottom line is that green cigars would be unsmokable, so we ferment the leaf. Once the tobacco leaves have been picked, they are separated, and then...
