I prefer a fuller bodied cigar, and if you do to, you will like this cigar. This cigar has a bold flavor, however it's not going to overpower you. You can smoke this stogie all by itself, but I would pair this with a Cragganmore 12 year neat. This scotch/cigar pairing goes well because the scotch doesn't over take the cigar with too much peat. Also this scotch has an very nice complex finish that goes well with the finish of the cigar.
