    What are you guys smoking and drinking? Tonight, its 50 degrees out, I've got a nice fire in the fire pit and I am enjoying an Asylum maduro 70 gauge and 2 fingers of Weller's. Neat of course. Has to be the best "cheap" bourbon I've tasted. Crazy that an $18.01 bottle of bourbon will sell out almost as soon as it hits the store. The Total Wine(great shop for whiskey and craft beer) closest to me(about 25 min away) keeps it behind the counter due to the high demand and I believe they sell it for $15 a bottle. Good LAWD I hope we can upset the leghumpers on Saturday. What I will have to put up with on Sunday am will be almost unbearable if UGA doesn't georgia! GO GATORS!

    I now doing Crown Royal, just the plain one without maple etc. Cigar- is Romeo & Juliet.

    Try Capt Morgan Pumpkin rum with Trader Joes Real Ginger ale. Good combo.

    Bullet rye with a splash of ginger beer. My favorite whiskey, though, comes from the highlands.

    I used to celebrate every time the Gators won with a cigar. Unfortunately that’s not very often this season. I really like an Avo XO Intermezzo with a Manhattan made with Makers Mark. Good whiskey and a cigar make the world a better place.

    Johnny platinum. Got a couple bottles on the last cruise cheap.
    Suffice it to say my cigar is not tobacco.

    Rarely smoke, but it is always a good Cuban (readily available here in Mexico.) Drink mostly small batch Mescal from Oaxaca, but I do have a Bowmore 18 and a Lagavulin 16 on the shelf. Prefer the peaty Islays to a highlands myself.

    Bib & Tucker is my favorite bourbon. Amazing stuff, but goes for around $60/bottle. Rowan's Creek is another small batch we like, it's about $40.

    The only think I smoke is meat in the smoker...

    Not a drinker myself but I buy a few bottles of Woodford Reserve every year for my long time friend, he says it is his favorite especially when I buy it :)

    I admit I'm very new to the world of cigars, but I'm a definite Scotch drinker and I'm with you on the regional choice. i have a couple bottles of Macallan 18 around, but my go-to is the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. I much prefer the more robust flavors of the Islays

    Laphroaig is a great choice with a Tampa Cuban Handrolled and a Tampa Cuban.

    Don’t know how y’all do the peaty whisky. I’m a highland guy. Glengoyne, Scapa and Balblair are lights out.
