November 22, 2016 (Newswire.com) - EASTON, PA - Cigar Advisor, the nation's premiere online cigar magazine, proudly serves cigar enthusiasts with a uniquely down-to-earth perspective on the enjoyment of premium cigars. Handpicked by Managing Editor John Pullo, his newest 2016 CA Report titled "Top Thanksgiving After Dinner Cigar Picks" is a compilation of eleven cigars that range from medium to full bodied - and when paired with a quality whiskey, wine or craft beer, "do wonders to soothe the overfed belly," he writes. This buying guide is aimed at cigar enthusiasts who enjoy a smoke after dinner, and are in search of a premium handmade cigar that will complement a big holiday meal.
"It's the sweet spot: between the serving of coffee/bourbon/football and a tryptophan-prompted coma, that's the perfect time for my after dinner smoke," writes John Pullo, Cigar Advisor Managing Editor and author of the magazine's newest CA Report. And to fill it, Pullo has recommended eleven cigars that he feels put the perfect finishing touch on a cigar lover's Thanksgiving. "A good after dinner cigar, in my opinion, is mostly full-bodied," he says. "For cigar enthusiasts, something that's very hearty is a great topper to a similarly big and hearty meal. It's epicurean - the same way a foodie will chase a savory gourmet dinner with a rich dessert. A good after dinner cigar can be very satisfying and rewarding in that same way."
John's "Big Feast" after dinner cigar picks include top shelf brands like Padron Serie 1926, Oliva Serie V and Montecristo White Vintage cigars. Boutique cigar makers are also well represented, with a nod to RoMa Craft's Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion cigars, Laranja Reserva and Sobremesa from Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust. Many of his picks are accompanied by a whiskey or wine pairing: "I can easily see [the Whiskey Rebellion] enjoyed alongside the burn of a hearty red wine," writes John. "The Aging Room Solera is blended in the manner of some Spanish dessert wines"; and for the Oliva, his advice is to "wash it down with two fingers of scotch." Just the same, he admits that many of his picks - including Herrera Esteli Norteño, San Cristobal Elegancia and Joya de Nicaragua Cuatro Cinco go great with a simple cup of coffee over dessert.
