Cigar Advisor Releases Dram Cigars for Whiskey Cask #1 Video Review and Whiskey Pairing

EASTON, PA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2015) - Famous Smoke Shop has just released the first in a series of four cigar and whiskey pairing reviews with Dram Cigars and Balvenie Distillery in association with their digital cigar and men's lifestyle magazine Cigar Advisor. Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business's top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle.

The Dram Cigars for Whiskey Cask #1 is the first in a line of four cigars that have been blended to pair with the top whiskeys and bourbons in the industry. Each Dram Cask #1 is rolled using an undisclosed combination of binder and filler tobaccos in order for smokers to analyze the smoke on its own without preconceived notions of a tobaccos country of origin being a deciding factor on taste. This secret blend is then wrapped inside of a Connecticut Shade Grown wrapper to complete the overall marriage of flavors within the cigar. This particular video pairs the Cask #1 with Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year.

"Right off the bat, I taste the wood upfront. It's got almost a cedar sawdust in the air. Smells great, it tastes woody and almost peety which should go well with the scotch," said Evan Kechley, Executive Chef of Leaf Cigar Bar & Restaurant and guest cigar reviewer of the Dram Cigars for Whiskey Cask #1. Cigar Advisor Copywriter Jonathan Detore adds after the review, "Blending cigars for whiskey is a brilliant idea. Cigars and whiskey is quite possibly the best pairing you can have, so to be able to do not only a cigar review, but one where you can taste first-hand the whiskeys meant for these particular cigars is a real treat. It brings the understanding of blending and pairing to a whole new level."

Dram Cigars for Whiskey Cask #1 cigars are available at Famous Smoke Shop, and is packaged in boxes of 20 cigars a piece. Each Cask #1 comes in a 6 x 54 Toro vitola with an individual retail price of $10 per cigar.
