Privada Spirits: Scotch
Privada Spirits. We created the idea for Privada Spirits well over 2 years ago. We realized very early on that people love cigars and spirits but they rarely did it right or understood how to pair the two together at all. So we came up with a fool proof plan for knowing what spirit goes with what cigar. Even if you do not drink alcoholic beverages, these cigars are all fantastic on their own. To create the cigars we submitted our idea for Privada Spirits to 6 different factories. In the end, Tabacalera Perla, the same manufacturer that makes our beloved Paul Stulac, outperformed all. These cigars are all natural and use natural fermentation and blending to achieve the clear flavor notes that are hard to achieve. Each one is as good as the next and each cigar on its own, released by a boutique brand, would be touted as a must try stick. How we came up with all 5 of these in one line of cigars is beyond me and a testament to the power of the Privada movement. #wearefamily #wearetheindustry #weareprivada
Body: Peat and apricot.
Foot: Peanuts, slight peat and rich tobacco.
Cold Draw: Dried peach or apricot. More peat and rich tobacco.
Tasting Notes: In the first third I am met with with dried peach, slight peat, creamy smoke, cedar and a Christmas cake/fruit cake umami. The retro is red pepper and ginger snaps. I love how you can hold the cigar by the band.
In the second third I get more dried peaches along with peat, ginger snaps and browned white toast. I also get an umami of roasted peanuts. There is a strong white pepper and cream for days. The cake thing is there if I think about it, but it is a nuance for sure.
In the final third I get more peaches but with floral notes. Cedar and cream but with the addition of milk chocolate. Cream and strong white pepper. Slight flavors of peat, peanut brittle and fennel. Wow this thing is a beautiful cigar.
Pairing Notes: Scotch. Waffles. Milk chocolate. Roasted peanuts. Peanut butter ice cream. Peanut butter cookies. Toffee cookies. Christmas cake. Fruit cake. Caramel. Frapuccino.
