ARTICLE/  PLAYLIST FOR A SUMMER SMOKE


 
 
 

A cigar is best enjoyed at ease. Contemplating one’s ash or the curl of blue smoke adds to the enjoyment, as does the right liquid accompaniment (whiskey, cognac or hearty beer in the evening; coffee or even Diet Coke by day—always with water on the side, of course). Music magnifies the experience. Suitable cigar-pairing genres are the blues, classical, country, electronic, folk, jazz, R&B, trip-hop and Southern Rock. Try pairing them all together. Insanity? Trust us on this. We field tested this playlist with an Aging Room Small Batch M356 Mezzo, and it all dovetails. Settle in for about an hour of pure pleasure.
