LOL, true. But no use suggesting something he can't even try now.
Just because someone else does? If someone else jumps off a bridge...
Well put! I prefer Ezra Brooks over all those except the Dickel. I can tell you that the ezra tasted just fine today.
Don't do either... like red wines and beer though!
Bingo! When I fish, I fish... no time for spendy cigar smoking. I just stick with small cigarillos such as Al Capones, Backwoods or flavored Swisher Sweets. I generally enjoy a drink at home after the trip.
A dry martini; in a deep champagne goblet.
Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet.
Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.
Romeo y Julieta Churchill.
These 2 items are totally functional, that is why we carry them. Cigars keep skeeters away and the whiskey is for medicinal purposes. Cures the aches and pains after a long day of fishing.
1.) Dry Fly Burbon 101
2.) Bolivar Belicoso (must be a TRUE Cuban)
Agree, I'm a fan of cheap browns. The bottom shelf has some good deals on decent whiskey.
I don't do the cigar and hip flask thing while fishing, since neither help with catching and oral cancer would suck. After a good day of fishing I'll relax with a cocktail though. Most cigar smokers on the beach come from Orvis and cast poppers I've noticed, must be a cult.
I found a cigar a little hard to manage (and am a little paranoid that I'll touch my line to the tip and melt it?!?!) while actively fishing, so I enjoy a pipe during my breaks stream/beach-side. Usually keep either Johnny Walker Gold or JD Single Barrel in my flask for a quick nip (or two) during said breaks...
Not sure if the pipe makes me look like a douche', but frankly I don't care too much…Nothing against cigars, just too much of a time commitment while fishing--I prefer them on the back porch or in the hot tub...
I don't smoke them while fishing, or drink to boot. It's an "off the water" thing for me. So no worries on burning anything other then my layering clothes.
Bulleit whiskey or Oban single malt are tasty even when you're not on the water. Pair that with a Partagras or Cohiba red dot and you're in it.
Also, I was given a bottle of Talisker scotch that I have fount pairs REALLY well with a medium bodied cigar. Just sayin.
Johnny Walker black, and Gran Habanos are best bang for the buck:
He is a great companion on or off the trout waters.
