With everything James, it comes down to your tastes. Don't listen to anyone on here or what they "like". Why? Because their answers are WRONG. Why wrong? Because they don't have your tastebuds. Try a few cigars, try a couple whiskeys, etc. Hell, doesn't even need to be whiskey. If you like a good rum, tequila, whatever. Put that in a flask. I don't find ANY fault if someone wants to smoke cheap Swisher Sweets and drink cheap whiskey, as long as they're out fishing while doing it. I smoke a cigar most aficiondos would consider "crap" or "not real". But I love them, taste good. And I chaw on the butt when I'm done with it (yup, that quote will be quote of the year I tell you lol). Again, it comes down to what you like. Guess what? I know a few guys who don't care for tobacco at all (chew, cigarettes, or cigars) and drink just sparingly. BTW, when you come home, don't forget to bring me my Soju.
