Whisky Advocate: Big Smoke Meets WhiskyFest Gets Big Reception In FloridaNovember 2, 2021
For the first time ever, Cigar Aficionado’s Big Smoke event teamed up with WhiskyFest at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on October 30. A bounty of whiskies were poured at the event, alongside collectible cigars from some of the world’s top cigarmakers.
Two thousand attendees buzzed around a ballroom filled with whiskies from around the world, including such sought after pours as George Dickel 15-year-old single barrel, Aberfeldy 21-year-old, Paul John Mithuna, Kentucky Peerless Double Oak Bourbon, Dewar’s Double Double 21-year-old, Glendronach 21-year-old, and Jack Daniel’s 10-year-old Tennessee whiskey, among many others, while 24 cigarmakers offered up their smokes to create a panoply of pairings.
