EASTON, PA--(Marketwired - January 27, 2016) -  Famous has just released a special two part series of cigar and rum pairing review videos featuring the highly regarded Blanco Cigar Company and Papa's Pillar Rum. Famous Smoke Shop in association with their digital cigar and men's lifestyle magazine Cigar Advisor bring a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business's top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle, including pairing review videos such as these.

One of the featured cigars is The American Legion -- a well-recognized U.S Veterans organization have partnered with Blanco Cigars to bring you this collaborative cigar. With a diverse Nicaraguan core mixed with a flawless Habano Rosado wrapper, the American Legion is a medium bodied offering loaded with flavor. What's even more interesting is that a portion of proceeds of the sale of this cigar get donated directly to the American Legion to help with operational and administrative costs, among other things. In essence, this is a highly popular cigar that goes to a great cause.

Papa's Pilar rum is heavily inspired by American literary rock star, Ernest Hemingway and his famous Pilar he traveled the shorelines of the southern United States and Caribbean. With an attitude of living life and enjoying the finer things in life inspired by this legend, Papa's Pilar began making their rums. Pairing cigars with the Papa's Pilar Dark and Blonde rum was an enjoyable experience. The sweet yet complex flavors of these libations followed up with the smooth finish made for a satisfying cigar pairing. Each batch is finished in Spanish Cherry casks, and has been highly rated by many spirit publications. 

Cigar review panelist and Famous Smoke Shop Graphic Designer Kevin Beck said of the pairing "I love rum, and I'm sad to say I had never tried the Papa's Pilar Dark Rum before this review. Where has this been all my life? The finish was long and rich, which only amplified the dominant flavors from the cigar. This may have been the first time trying this pairing, but it certainly won't be my last."
