Good evening, tonight’s pairing is the Johnny Walker Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky and a Padron Handmade 6000 cigar. The whisky has a smoky flavor to it. The scotch whiskies used varies within the 12-year-old blend. The Johnnie Walker Black Label Scotch whisky is rich and smooth. You can detect cocoa-chocolaty notes within the whisky which makes it an excellent choice to have at the end of a long, hard day at work or following your evening meal. The Padron Handmade 6000 cigar has a perfecto tip, is about 5 and a half inches in length and is a medium-full bodied cigar.
The smoothness of the Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky pairs up very well with the Padron Handmade 6000 cigar. The flavors of both are consistent and silky. The combination of the whisky and cigar flavors might bring to mind the taste of a Terry’s Chocolate-Orange. The Padron Handmade 6000 flavors are creamy, cocoa, chocolate and some spice which, when combined with the smokiness of the whisky, reminded me of that delicious treat!
With the flavor remaining consistent throughout the pairing, I would definitely recommend both the whisky and cigar to enjoy when down-time is needed. The Padron 6000 Series Handmade Cigar compliments the Johnnie Walker Black Label Blended Scotch Whisky.
