Shocked by the results. Can someone link the thread here with everyone's guesses about what they expected the results to be? I couldn't find it with search and it would be fun to compare the guesses with the final results. I can't remember now what I guessed but I'm pretty certain that OJ was not on my list. 

Great experiment!

Grab a cigar and your favourite drink

At the 15 min mark Smithy posed a question, what drinks actually featured the most favour notes in common with cigars?

I would argue you were missing drink that has most in common is;

Jose Cuervo 1800 Anejo

Cedar, Caramel, spiciness, citrus, grassiness, honey it's all there.

I read somewhere that Winston Churchill spent a day in Cuba smoking cigars and eating oranges, so must be something there!

For me it's gotta be a nice smooth aged rum from Barbados (Mount Gay XO, Doorly's XO, Doorly's 12, Rum Sixty Six), or St Lucia (Chairmans Reserve, Admiral Rodney).

But mostly I reach for Doorly's XO.

Really enjoying watching this, and I intend to replicate this experiment with a couple of cigar buddies.

BTW I enjoy most nowadays with a cigar:  honey bourbon (really honey Tennessee whiskey) OR bourbon with a spoonful of honey OR an Irish whiskey with a spoonful of honey. Seems to bring out the flavors way way better than a scotch or plain bourbon or whiskey. Must be the sweetness of the honey that I like.  Now onto orange juice!

when i drink tequila i go for don julio, if you want the the OJ effect with the sweet acidic taste go with BLANCO it has a nice lemon, lime and grapefruit taste or a sweeter drink AÑEJO CLARO  you have vanilla, honey and toasted oak, or if you want a real treat the REAL has vanilla flavors layered with caramel, chocolate and almond undertones it isn't cheap tho around $400 bottle 

for my money i go with the REPOSADO with dark chocolate, vanilla and light cinnamon

Further suggestions - Champagne, Riesling (sweet), and dry English cider.

Oh, and Malmsey Madeira.

I’ll have to try a Monty 4 with OJ one morning this weekend. The most common pairing for me is a black Americano but also enjoy rum and cognac.

If you do another test with other drinks it would be interesting to see your comments on an XO cognac.

Would be interesting to do this test with a different cigar to see if you get the same results.

You need to try with this bad boy a san pellegrino aranciata. One of my favourites.

The combination doesn't sound so odd when you consider:

Lindt Lindor Milk Orange 200g

 

I intend trying OJ,  But I mostly drink water when I smoke- or coffee if it's not too late.  Good video.

OJ, that's crazy! I typically drink coffee, water or Port mostly. I'll have to try Muscat and OJ. Fun video, gents. Thank you.

Quite enjoy stout and rum with cigars, never thought about having orange juice though. 

The Fohrensics videos are great, keep up the good "work" guys!
