Just like wine and cheese, a cigar and a drink pairing go hand-in-hand. But, for your average cigar smoker, it can be difficult knowing what kind of beverage to pair with certain cigars. Even for the cigar aficionado, a cigar pairing suggestion or two never hurts.
We can see the scene playing in our heads like a movie on repeat. You pick up a brand new cigar, maybe you’ve had the pleasure of smoking it before, maybe not. You grab your standard cigar cutter that you’ve had for years, and guess what, you completely butcher it. The cut isn’t clean, you may have pinched your finger, maybe you’ve unraveled the wrap, and the filler is now anything but in unison. Absolute cigar cutter fail.
The saying goes, “a carpenter is only as good as his/her tools.” Believe it or not, a cigar smoker is only as good as your cigar ashtray. Well, that may not be entirely true, but you get the gist.
For any cigar smoker, whether you smoke one cigar a year or one a day, a cool cigar ashtray can be the perfect combination of show-stopping aesthetic and meaningful functionality.
