    Enjoy Rebecca - I'm a huge Partagas fan, so hoping you find them equally as alluring as I do!

    I did a lot of searching and reading on the cigars you all suggested, unfortunately all it did was reiterate how little I know about cigars.
    Anyway, after all that I have decided to go with the Partagas and see how it goes, I'm just a little worried about how strong it will be for us novices However I am very much looking forward to trying a whisky with the cigar it was specifically meant to be paired with. I will let you know how it goes.

    Thanks again, it was much appreciated.
    I very much expect I will be back again soon looking for more advice!
    I hope you enjoy it Rebecca, Partagas have a fairly distinct flavour profile and are one of my favourites. I look forward to you letting us know what you thought of it.

    I tasted almond in a Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro I recently had. It is a moreish flavour, especially in a cigar!

    Reminds me, I've not had an Epi 2 for a while so will have to revisit again soon to see if I can detect any marzipan but I do get sweet coconut from the Epi Especial which is another nice stick.

    Then you need to try one of these if you haven't done so already.

    One I'd throw into the mix is the Rafael Gonzalez Coronas Extra. An excellent lighter match with whisky - not tried it with the Dalmore Cigar Malt, but has matched very well with Dalmore 15 and Highland Park 15.

    Hi Rebecca and welcome to the forum.

    I would go for a Hoyo de Monterrey les Hoyo des Dieux, 42 ring being novice friendly and they pair well with good whisky.
    These have a nice array of complex woody tones.

    Welcome to the forum Rebecca and maybe try the Romeo Y Julieta Short Churchill.

    Hi Rebecca

    A similar sized cigar that is lighter would be the Hoyo De Monterry Epicure II

    Your recipient will enjoy this cigar with a wee dram I am certain.

    Will you let us know what you decide and how it goes?
