Will be heading to a St. Patrick's Dsay dinner and dance. Will be lighting up a new Filthy Hooligan by Alec Bradley, pairing it with a nice Irish Whiskey. Jameson, Bushmill or Tulamore Dew. Can't wait! Thanks gentlemen, always on the ball with the pairings! Wish I could spent sometime with you Jack to explore the wonderful world of spirits and cigar pairings. Slainte!

Have a great Paddy's day to all at Cigar Aficionado & to Frederick(above). Enjoying a Cohiba Siglo 1 with a highly recommended Powers 12yr.old special reserve whiskey.
