Drew Estate Pappy Van Winkle Tradition Belicoso Fino

One of the best pairings while smoking a cigar is a nice bourbon.  The flavors compliment each other nicely and are perfect for a nice relaxing nightcap.  Pappy Van Winkle is one of the greatest bourbons on the market so I was excited to hear that they teamed up with Drew Estate to produce a couple of lines of cigars.  The first one using Kentucky tobaccos that was barn fire cured and fermented in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels in …
