I love Glenfiddich 15 with anything at anytime. Glenrothes 1991 bottled in 2008 is also awesome, but a bit pricier so it isn't my daily drink.

I usually smoke spicier blends on the line of DPG blends, but I really think the scotch I mention above goes well with the slightly sweet maduros.

There are so many good ones...

My favorites would be Balvenie 21, Glenlivet 18 and Johnny Walker Blue.

Also, I think Bourbon is awesome with cigars, and plus, it’s a little more reasonable in price than single malts. My favorite bourbon is Woodford Reserve (it rocks!!) and Blantens is also good.

With scotch or bourbon, I prefer full-bodied cigars, my favorite one lately is the Bolivar Cofarida. The other day I had a Diesel Unholy Cocktail with some Woodford Reserve, they went great together – a marriage made in heaven!

I have some Bolivar Cofradia on the way. While I drink more bourbon than scotch, I feel a scotch mood coming on... I'll have to see which they go better with (scotch or bourbon).

Dalmore makes a "Cigar Malt" I have a bottle of it and it's actually a pretty good scotch. Johnnie Walker Black is my favorite goto scotch with pretty much any cigar. I've recently been drinking Chivas Regal 18 year and that also pairs well with whatever cigar i'm in the mood for.

For me, the pairing of a good Kentucky Bourbon and your favorite cigar is one of those little pleasures that makes life good. I am fortunate enough to live right in the heart of KY Bourbon country (the Woodford Reserve distillery is less than 8 miles from my house) and it IS a great Bourbon.

I'd like to suggest these bourbons for those of you who enjoy the stuff: Wild Turkey Rare Breed, Russel's Reserve 10 yr, Ridgemont Reserve 1792, Elijah Craig 18 yr, and 4 Roses Single Barrel. These are all moderately priced bourbons in the $28 to $43 range for 750ml, but lordy you'll get a lot of SMOOTH TASTE for your buck.

Pairing the Wild Turkey Rare Breed and an Oliva V is, for me, the perfect end to any day.

When I drink Scotch (which is not often) I usually pour up some Highland Park 18 year.

Just last night, I went to a cigar lounge/bar in Rochester and I enjoyed a johnny walker blue label with a 601 habano. These two are great apart or together.

The Dalmore Cigar Malt is really good with cigars. It is not too peaty, so it goes well with all cigars from mild to full flavor.

I am personally loving a new bourbon I discovered on the rocks with my cigars.
It is Eagle Rare 10yr old. I get it for $24 dollars in my town.
It is very smooth. Very drinkable, more body and less floral than makers mark.

The Eagle Rare is a GREAT Bourbon, one of my favorites.

If you like this one, you owe it to yourself to give Russels Reserve 10 year a shot; it's comparably priced with the Eagle Rare, and a little smoother.

When I am at the local cigar lounge I usually get a Glenlivet 12. I have paired it with different med-full sticks, but I really enjoyed it with a San Cristobal.

At home I have a bottle of Chivas 18 and pair it with mostly anything in the humi. Most recently I paired it with a Gran Habano Cabinet Selection and this worked very well.

I'm not a Bourbon drinker that Evan Williams should would make me a one really nice and smooth
