Pairing: Merlot wine and the 18 year Habanos Churchill

Merlot wine known for its blackberry fruit and its velvetiness is the perfect paring with our 18 Year Habanos Churchill. The 18 year Habanos Churchill initially exhibits fruitiness, licorice, and sweet coffee flavors. In the the middle and into the end of this smooth finishing cigar is a faint sweet peppery taste that will linger on your palette ever so subtly as you wash it down with the deep fruits of the merlot. Interestingly The 18 year Habanos Churchill is triple fermented with the first fermentation using the assistance of merlot to balance the acidity..so it’s only natural that these two blend perfectly!
