Definitely not a good match.
My smoking has been fairly limited over the past few weeks because I really believe that trying to smoke when I have allergy attacks is a waste of a good cigar. Can’t taste anything.
That said, I had a pretty clear weekend last week, so…
PDR 1878 SG robusto
Perfect wrapper, good bunch and heavenly fragrances from the wrapper and the foot with a generous draw.
Smoked with a Freetail Pinata Protest red wit brewed with ancho chilis, a perfect match for a sungrown wrapper.
This cigar could be a meal. Initial flavors are peppery toasted tobacco with hints of Milanesa. Razor straight burn and no excessive heat. Lots of smoke to complete the experience.
Firm grey ash held past 1″, I almost always knock the ash off at that point to check the burn, which showed slight coning but perfectly even.
Purged at 2/3 point to mute the heat that had built up, cigar cooled back down niceley. This will be a nubber.
The beer/cigar combination was perfect. 5/5. Joe Bob says check it out!
