Pair a cigar with Islay Scotch for me.

I've got a bit of Port Askaig 110 proof (think young cask strength Caol Ila if that helps) that I'd like to pair with a nice Cuban cuban. What would you reach for?

QD50 possibly. bread and orange would likely go well with lemon and kippers

R&J wide churchill may be quite good or a RASS. Cherry / fruit notes I think would go quite well with Islay malts.   

Oban Distillers Edition 2018 & a 10 year aged H.Upmann No.2 is a pairing I had recently and was next level.

I drink a lot of peated scotch. My experience is the stronger cigar the better. Boli PC, partagas shorts are two I smoke often. I feel like the flavors of a QDO are lost with scotch that flavorful. 
‘I had some Lagavulin last night with an older RJ belicoso  and the scotch was too much for the cigar.
