I fancied a quick smoke and a nice whisky tonight, so I've gone for a J. Fuego Origen Ltd Original and a glass of Lagavulin 12 (2009 bottling). Normally, I don't pair very peaty scotch with cigars as I think the best pairings work on contrast, unless you find a really good match.
But the L12 is much sweeter and softer than Lagavulin 16 so I thought I'd give it a try. The L12 possibly lacks some of the complexity Lagavulin is famous for but it's a delicious scotch nonetheless. Some of the later releases have been harsher apparently - I haven't tried them - but this release works really well with this particular cigar.
Origen Originals have a reputation of being pretty robust little smokes (I'd post links to some other puffers' excellent reviews but I can't yet!) which I totally agree with. The L12 has a lemony top note, and some briny, salted caramel flavours that contrast nicely with the hefty leather and spice of the cigar. The peat is there of course, but it's tamed enough so as not to fight the flavours of the cigar - more beach barbecue than pile of burning tyres. The result is a rounded mix of flavours which I think are totally complimentary. Caol Ila 12, which might be easier to get hold of, might give a similar result.
