Non-spirited drinks are but two: coffee (9 out of 10 times in the morning) or Jasmine green tea (9 out of 10 times in the evening).

Beer...well, my signature gives a hint. Porters and stouts as well.

Straights...bourbons or scotches. I find wine to heavy on the pallet (red, that is..can't see myself smoking to a white).

I'm all about matching the drink to the smoke with alcohol.

I find that the green tea works with everything, though, so that gets the most mileage. Two cups tonight with my Escudo.

Scotch or Bourbon with a pipe or cigar. Sometimes a Budweiser with a cigar is my go to. That is what I had tonight.

Seems like Scotch is the drink of choice so far.

Jameson when possible. Otherwise, coffee or water.

Mmm, a nice Caramel Macchiato goes perfect with a pipe for me.

Oooo Oooo... this is the part I like...

...so, my darker tobacco blends seem to go nicely with my Glenlivet 18. Recently, I bought, on a whim, a bottle of High West Double Rye, and it's super spicy...great for mellow and thick aromatics smokes. I get lost on my porch with those two, it's like meditation! Very Happy I've been experimenting a LOT with rye whiskey lately, Bullet being another I plan on adding to the collection soon.

My burley blends (especially with the Virginias mixed in) like the beers, especially some of the German smokebeers I've been getting into. A brewer called "Mikkeller" has this high-end malt liquor that works well here, too...very malty flavors off of the complex lighter smokes.

Tinder Box makes a blend called "Royal Estate" that goes extremely well with espresso, I just find too much of a "nicotine high" with it usually, which is a shame... it tastes great, but I get the shakes (with or without the espresso!)--so I switched over to a more sour, cranberry mix they have called U-Got-It, which is the second best. This is also where I like the Nording Retriever, over a properly-pulled cappuccino.

Either Coke Zero, Diet Dr. Pepper, or iced tea, depending on blend. Once in a while a mojito. study

Truth to tell: nothing can beat a good iced tea when the time calls for it. Cool

I find rainwater Madeira works nicely with Carter Hall and latakia blends. (Most other madeiras would be too sweet for me, although if I ever get a bottle of Sercial, it will be fun to experiment)

for a non alcoholic drink I like a 50-50 mix of black and green iced tea, but most of the time it's Newcastle, Guinness or Scotch.

While the main staple is coffee, there are certain spirits I find very complimentary to certain blends. Very Happy

It completely depends on what I am smoking...for something sweet like aged or mature Virginias I prefer hot tea, normally Russian Kusmi Prince Vladamir with a bit of fir tree honey. For English blends both new and aged I prefer scotch with a single ice cube (Lagavulin 16) or Lapsang Souchong hot tea, no honey.

Snapple Iced Tea is what I always drink during pipe smoking. I just can't smoke and not drink something, I find my mouth is way to dry.

I must say though I love Single Malt Scotch. Ardbeg 10 is probably the smokiest I'v ever had, Bunnahabhain is more up my alley. Any Islay scotch seems to marry well with Lat blends. But most of the time, any whiskey will do just fine.

Peace-Jazzman cheers

If there's anything out there that I like as much (or more) than smoking pipes, It's a good cup of coffee. I find hot or iced (depending on the season) coffee pretty much goes with any blend. Also a room temp bottle of water does quite nice for me.

I too favor the Islay style of Scotch if I am going heavy with the pipe. One fellow mentioned Ardbeg, that happens to be my favorite whisky. As for beer, I enjoy the IPAs with a pipe, but not afraid of a belgia doppel or anything like that either. Avery's The Reverend springs to mind. Good stuff.

A good dark beer, or Laphroig (mmmmmmm, tasty) if I am smoking english.

Amaretto on the rocks matches up nicely with some aromatics.

A mocha is a good choice for coffee and a smoke...

And, I would highly recommend some Lapsang Souchong tea with milk.
