Whiskey and cigars: it’s a great passion for some and many aficionados and the curious turned out to make The Cedarville BBC Oak & Smoke a sold-out event Wednesday night. (July 18) Patrons were treated to a five-course tasting menu, whiskey samplings and cigars were for sale.
Why do whiskey and cigars make such a great pairing?
“Both are meant to be consumed slowly over time,” explains BBC Culinary Director John DeFranc, who designed the special menu. “Cigars will warm your mouth while the spirits warm your stomach. All can have hints of oak and smoke so we wanted to prepare foods with those tasting notes.”
