I find cigars kill my taste buds for drinking scotch. I always have a supply of Hemmingway short story's on hand as my favorites and do drink and smoke at the same time sometimes. Just saying I can taste better without the smoke
I would love to have the oppertunity to taste a Mcallan 25.
I would go with a Ardbeg Uigeadail. Best bang at any price. great stuff.
Sherry, smoke, peat, sweet wood, or if you don't want the sherry influence get at Correvreckan which is my current fav.
