In this week’s episode we light up the Plasencia Reserva Original Robusto, a Nicaraguan puro and the world’s first certified organic cigar. For the first time, Lisa from the 7-20-4 Lounge jumps in to do the pairings with us. It just so happens that the Reserva Original is Lisa’s favorite cigar, and she knew just what to pair it with, Michter’s Toasted Barrel Bourbon. But in the middle of our fun Lisa got pulled back upstairs as cigar legend Nestor Miranda of Miami Cigars shows up out of the blue at the bar.
For the pipe tobacco, we light up on of Pastor Padron’s longtime favorites, G.L. Pease Haddo’s Delight. But Lisa was trapped upstairs and unable to come back down with a pipe pairing. Would the Michter’s do just as well with Haddo’s?
Of course, just because something is “organic” doesn’t mean it is good. Is the Plasencia Reserva Original good? Is it worthy of being a Thanksgiving smoke? Is Haddo’s really a delight? Or is Pastor Padron caught up in his love for all things G.L. Pease? Listen here or follow the link below and find out!
