Cognac and cigars are a classic pairing, brought together with the goal of enhanced enjoyment. In choosing the products to pair, both the cognac and the cigar should have equal consideration. The aromas, flavors and strengths of the paired elements will affect the overall experience.
Older cognacs are often preferred with cigars. Some cognac makers have even crafted special blends as their best cognacs for cigars. These blends have been specifically created for pairings. The cigar-suited cognacs are normally made and aged to complement a range of cigars.
