Cigar Pairings to Help Warm Up Your Winter
Montecristo offers suggestions for pairing their iconic cigars with a variety of libations.
With winter officially underway, it’s time to cozy up and savor life’s pleasures. Montecristo knows that the right cigar paired with the right beverage can make all the difference. Here are a few of their favorites for fending off the colder temperatures.
Montecristo Classic. With flavors of almonds, butter toffee and vanilla, the Classic complements a medium roast Americano coffee, a lager or a smooth merlot.
Montecristo Platinum. Nothing says the holidays like roasted chestnuts, and the Platinum cigar delivers. Savor this timeless flavor (along with notes of dried fruit, subtle spices and caramel) while sipping on a Manhattan cocktail or a glass of syrah.
Montecristo Epic. This dark mahogany cigar produces an earthy, sweet aroma with flavor notes of espresso beans, molasses and cocoa. Smoky bourbon, cabernet sauvignon or cranberry juice help draw out the flavors.
Romeo y Julieta® Reserva Real. Featuring a clean and delicate finish, the Reserva Real makes the perfect companion to a cup of Earl Grey tea or a smooth dirty martini.
ROMEO Anejo. This full-bodied cigar will keep you toasty up while enjoying a French press coffee, an American porter or a glass of red zinfandel.
