This wonderful cigar is my favorite type – medium to full bodied, soft in texture and burns cleanly and evenly with a soft and even draw.
Ron Zacapa Centenario 23 Solera Rum is a beautiful spirit that pairs perfectly with this cigar. Lorena Vásquez is the Zacapa Rum master blender. The Zacapa facility is 7500 feet above sea level in Guatemala, where Ms. Vásquez combines aromas and flavors of slowly aged rums to create this beautiful spirit.
I drink this rum with one large ice cube, so that the dilution is slow and deliberate. The idea of a “sipping rum” is not in everyone’s lexicon, but fine rum is delicious on it’s own…almost like an Old Fashioned cocktail in a bottle.
Try this pairing! You will not be disappointed!
