Like so many experiences based on flavor, the enjoyment of a cigar can often be influenced by the pairings made with it. And while the combinations of cigars with a good wine, cognac or even beer are relatively well understood, there are some more unlikely pairings you may not have considered. Like chocolate, for example. Pairing chocolate and cigars may at first seem like a strange thing to do, one being sweet, the other being more bitter and refined, but you’d be surprised how well it can work. The trick is to subtly balance the flavors, with chocolatiers making more and more adventurous chocolates, it’s an exciting time to be experimenting with what works best on your palette.
