My Father Flor de las Antillas (90 points, Cigar Insider)
This medium-to-full-bodied Nicaraguan puro is full of leather, spice and nuts. Paired with the rum, it causes the Appleton’s licorice notes to pop even more intensely. The rum returns the favor, coaxing rich wood flavors from the cigar
Juan Lopez Selección No. 2 (92 points, Cigar Insider)
This medium-bodied Cuban cigar features meat, toast, leather and coffee. With the rum, it develops some unexpected fruit notes. Once again the addition of the cigar evokes the licorice in the Appleton as well as some fruit (cherries) previously undetected. While both cigars made good pairings, this the winner of the tasting. You’ll find yourself going back and forth, wondering whether it’s the rum that makes the cigar so good or vice versa.
