Twenty seven of the best cigar connoisseurs and whisky aficionados in the United Kingdom took part.
They included representatives from Hunters & Frankau, Davidoff, Pappy Van Winkle, Whyte and Mackay, Inver House Distillers and other cigar and whisky merchants.
Four combinations of cigars and whisky, including a bourbon, had made it through the initial tasting round, but the voting showed one clear winner, the Honduran Don Ramos cigar and Whyte & Mackay 30 year old.
While not every single judge’s favourite most agreed that the whisky brought the best out of the cigar and vice versa. The sweet, slightly sherried well-balanced whisky just hit home with the earthy, mellow smoke.
Gold – Don Ramos and Whyte & Mackay 30 year old
Silver – Davidoff Millennium blend and Dalmore Black Pearl
Bronze – Avo Domaine and Dalmore Black Pearl
Highly Commended – Don Ramos and Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old
