Being the good Kentucky boy that I am, i really prefer to drink bourbon while smoking. However I think it may be time that I find a new non-booze option...so what is your drink of choice?

Dark beer, a good porter from any brewery goes well with most any tobacco for me.

Non-Booze? Coffee for the most part, occasional cup of tea

Now that summer has finally arrived in South-Western B.C. (not that you would know it from todays 13c and rainy), I'm discovering the joys of lemonaide and VaPers in the sunshine.
Coffee and/or tea also gets a vote from me.

drink of choice while smoking Nuun10

The way this product feels in my mouth very much cleanses my palate of pipe smoke and makes me ready for the next puff, perhaps it is the sodium content. I think as a general rule, sweet sugary stuff should be avoided.

On the booze side of things, I enjoy gin or a bitter-style or IPA beer with English mixtures and hefeweizens or saisons with Virginias. A bottle of amontillado never disagreed either.

On the non-alcoholic side, coffee and tea are surefire choices, but I find ginger beer or tonic water to be refreshing as well.

Nothing, or at least a glass of non-ice water.

I prefer to taste the tobacco.


Cheers,

RR

I'm part of the no drinking while smoking group, not even water. However, I'll almost always drain a glass of something--usually water--after I finish a bowl.

This is a very interesting topic, I think a lot depends on what blend you are puffing. I like a nice scotch on the rocks as a good "go to" drink with a pipe.

I think its fun to experiment with this and see what pairs well with the other...its heaven once you discover a perfect combo.

Does the milk drown out the taste of the tobacco for you?

I sometimes enjoy an iced vanilla coffee with my evening bowl.

More often then not its just a glass of water for me. Weekend mornings I'll usually smoke some burley with my morning coffee. When I do drink something more adult oriented in the evening I do find the sweetness of bourbon goes well with Virginias and peaty scotches go well with heavier lat blends. Lagers and stouts seem to go well with everything but I find IPAs tend to be a little overpowering for most blends.

My drink of choice with a pipe is Scotch. While I prefer rich 12+ year old De Luxe blends over 1 or 2 ice cubes, my wallet often demands that I drink younger blends (Teachers is a steal for the price) usually on the rocks with just a splash of soda water. During the week, with work coming far too early in the morning, I usually drink iced tea when I smoke. I find the darjeeling, earl grey and oolong work well with a pipe.

I know that Latakia blends and peated scotch is an obvious pairing but I often enjoy a dram of Laphroaig while smoking VA and VApers. I like how the leathery, smokey campfire contrasts the spicy/sweet of a good matured VA or VAper.

Lighter VA/burley blends like OGS and Best brown are excellent with a bit of the Balvenie Doublewood (enhances the honey note IMO)

And I also love a good IPA, either Stone or Sierra Nevada, with some of the Lakeland flakes and blends. I love the "soapy" and "floral" notes and to me a good IPA should have a certain "fine soap" and "floral" taste as well

I'm a fan of Ardbeg, but smooth isn't the first adjective that comes to mind. I like my whiskies smoky and pungent, and whether a whisky is smooth or not is a secondary consideration for me. It's been a while since I've last had a glass (I have an unopened bottle waiting for a special occasion.) but I don't remember it being particularly smooth.

Indeed. Actually, if we had to split a Johnnie Walker Blue and an Ardbeg on some desert island exile, I'd be happy to let you make off with the Blue Label, if I could keep the Ardbeg for myself. However, I will give Blue Label credit for being one of the few whiskies I would characterize as simultaneously smooth and smoky.

Sorry to veer off topic, I'm still a no-drinking-while-smoking kind of guy.

Agree with s.Ireland - Laphroaig is the way to go for me.

I'm out of Ardbeg at the moment and need to get some more, I just get the 10 year...that's good enough for me @ $68 a bottle.
