been indulging glp odyssey and cuba libre. noticed it before, but sweet drinks tend to compliment tobacco rather well. usually drink diet pepsi with my smoke, but this cuba libre kick it up to another notch.
Back in my Nightcap days, I used to keep a jug of iced tea, sweetened and lemoned, pretty handy. The lemon seemed to bring out a nectary aftertaste, almost like honeysuckle dew.
That, however, is about as sweet as I get. I haven't had a canned soda in years.
For me, sherry goes well with many pipe tobaccos, especially to offset the slight bitterness of latakia.
Scotch and cognac are fine, but when paired with tobacco, the strong flavours seem to drown each other out.
@bullet08 - you mention Greg's Odyssey which is an excellent blend having a sweetness of its own. The VAs contrast wonderfully with the latakia.
Jackknife Plug and black coffee with sugar ... aaaah!
Mac Baren Club Blend and Arizona Green Tea w/Ginseng is a perfect match.
Dunhill Early Morning Pipe and Mt. Dew Throwback (cane sugar version) is a great way to start a hot, hot day.
The list goes on (and your mileage will vary).
Vernors and Prince Albert in a cob ...
