Cigar Drinks

Guinness for strenght
The official quality grades for cognac are listed on the bottle as: VS  stands for Very Special and is the youngest  stored at least two years in cask, VSOP stands for Very Special  Old Pale, where the youngest brandy is stored at least four years in a cask, but the average wood age is much older, and XO Extra Old, stored at least six years. The xo is a higher grade and better quality to have with a cigar.  When it comes to wine, I find the full-bodied reds go best with a cigar, but my favorite will have to be a stout like Guinness.
