GUEST – Wayne Newton

Pouring: Pappy Van Winkle, Pappy Cigars

Description: Holy Smokes! We’ve got Pappy Van Winkle bourbon & cigars AND Mr. Las Vegas on the same stage – “DANKE SCHOEN” to that. Join Carrie Van Winkle Greener and her cigar partners from Drew Estate along with WAYNE NEWTON to discover what makes the Pappy cigars and their bourbon so specialAccording to Advanced Mixology magazine, “There are various reasons why cigars work well with whiskey, but perhaps the most common is their very similar flavors. You can find richness, smokiness, essences of spice, and a bit of sweetness. The warmth of a cigar brings comfort to your mouth, while whiskey brings stomach fire to keep away the cold! Both are also meant to be savored slowly.” The coveted line of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon is no exception and is the reason why Pappy & Company offers some of the most unique bourbon barrel-aged cigars in the world..
