Famous Grouse Reveals a Dark Side (In Spades)

(continued from page 1)

Davidoff Nicaragua Toro (5 1/2 inches by 54 ring gauge, $16.50, 95 Points, No. 3 Cigar of 2013, February 2014 issue of Cigar Aficionado) Floral notes add some complexity to this elegantly rolled sweet-and-salty toro. It develops profound coffee and leather flavors that recur on the long, smooth finish. And—bam—the luscious peat smoke comes right out on the whisky with every puff of this gorgeous cigar. No need to wait for the finish. You get roasted nuts right away. In the exchange, the Black Grouse picks up on the sweetness of the Davidoff and expands. An excellent pairing.
