Scotch is one of the most preferred drinks to accompany a cigar. Scotch can be an acquired taste, as can cigars. I seldom drink Scotch without a cigar, but Macallan 12-year single malt is one Scotch that I can enjoy sans cigar. I recently picked up a bottle of Chivas Regal 18-year blended Scotch for a couple of bucks more than the Macallan. The Chivas 18 was not as smooth, but was fuller and bolder than the Macallan, making for a great companion to my full-bodied cigar. As with any beverage, food or cigar, the ones that you will like the most are a matter of personal choice. But with prices just over $40 per bottle, why not enjoy them both?
