Pairings for Davidoff Cigars

When creating a pairing you want to find flavors that compliment each other well, pairings that promote prominent flavors and sometimes reveal hidden notes, and pairings that don’t dominate each other. Davidoff cigars are known for their superior construction, perfect draws, and delicious flavors. Many drinks pair well with Davidoff cigars. Here are some of our favorite pairings:

Davidoff 50th Anniversary Cigar Pairing

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

Size: Aniversario No.3 (6″ x 50, Toro)

Strength: Medium-Full

Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut

Binder: Dominican Republic

Filler: Dominican Republic

Pairing: Makers Mark

The Davidoff 50th Anniversary Cigar kicks off with Toasty, leathery flavors that shift towards sweet wood and peppery spice and you get further into the cigar. It has an undertone of cedar and creaminess through the entire experience. The 50th Anniversary Cigar grows great with a glass of Makers Mark bourbon, however you prefer it. Makers Mark has delicious maple, orange, and vanilla flavors that combine great with the cigar. This Davidoff brings a surprising amount of caramel out of the bourbon creating a really delicious pairing.

Davidoff Winston Churchill Cigar Pairing

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

Size: Toro (6″ x 54)

Strength: Medium

Wrapper: Ecuador Habano

Binder: Mexican San Andres Negro

Filler: Nicaraguan Esteli and Condega, Dominican Piloto and Piloto/Olor hybrid

Pairing: Coffee

From beginning to end the Winston Churchill is a delectable smoke, packed full of flavor. When smoking the Davidoff Winston Churchill you can taste hints of toast, fruit, and almond-like flavors with an undertone of cream, vanilla, and spice. The Winston Churchill pairs well with a simple, black cup of coffee - specifically a Colombian roast. The cigar brings out a great level of creaminess from the coffee and the coffee accentuates the nuttiness in the cigar.

Davidoff Nicaragua Cigar Pairing

Country of Origin: Nicaraguan

Size: Diadema (6½” x 50, Figurado)

Strength: Medium-Full

Wrapper: Nicaraguan Habano

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Pairing: Lagavulin 16

Compared to most Davidoff cigars, the Davidoff Nicaragua is more full-bodied. The wood flavor in this blend is more pronounced. The base flavors underneath the woody, cedar-like flavors are a combination of citrus and spice. A glass of Lagavulin 16 year goes perfectly with this Nicaraguan blend. Lagavulin 16 is an Islay scotch which is notorious for having strong smokey flavors. In this pairing, the cigar promotes flavors in the Scotch that would not ordinarily be picked up without a cigar. Combining an already smokey drink with this cigar actually uncovers flavors that are typically hidden underneath the strong peaty and smokey tastes. While smoking your cigar, flavors of dried citrus, sherry, and vanilla become significantly more pronounced. It creates a pairing that would make Ron Swanson proud.

Davidoff Signature Series Cigar Pairing

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic

Size: Petit Corona (4 ½” x 41)

Strength: Medium

Wrapper: Ecuador Connecticut Shade

Binder: Dominican Republic

Filler: Dominican Republic

Pairing: Root beer

The Davidoff Signature Series cigars are a Davidoff classic that features all of Davidoff’s best qualities. Perfect construction, perfect draw, unbelievable flavors. The Signature Series is full of light peppery flavors, hints of bread like flavors, and a citrus finish. This cigar has a delicious undertone of honey, mushroom, and cedar. A&W Root Beer goes great with this cigar. Many sodas tend to strip away flavors from the cigar and vice versa. Root beer brings out the creamy undertones in the cigar and the cigar pronounces the vanilla flavors in your drink. If you haven’t tried root beer with a cigar, prepare to be amazed!
