Knowing Cigars For Beginners

By Walter Gibbs

Are you a beginner who has just picked up his first cigar? Don’t do the mistake of confusing cigar smoking with cigarette smoking and pick up any brand available with your local dealer. A normal lighter would also not suffice; you would end up in a cough and be confused about what wrong you did.

The taste of the cigar may be too strong and unpleasant for you., causing you to put the cigar out and never pick up another one again.

Many individuals have traveled down this road. If you are one of them, you should not feel discouraged. Don’t let one bad experience stop you from finding a cigar you can enjoy. There are plenty of fine quality cigars available on the market. If you want one, you can find one. You just have to look in reputable cigar shops. There is a very slim chance that you will find a nice quality cigar in a convenient store.

The main problem lies in the production of cigars that are sold at convenient stores; they are made in bulk and have preservatives and additives mixed with the tobacco that mar the taste.

Additives are added to increase the cigar life, but it is at the expense of the taste. If you want to buy a cheap cigar, you would have to compromise on the taste as no cigar with 100% tobacco comes cheap.

Premium quality cigars are usually hand rolled and made with tobacco that has been aged to perfection. Most of the tobacco is imported from places that have the perfect climate for growing and harvesting tobacco year round. These cigars are made from 100% tobacco with the occasional filler. None of these fillers are ever odd or strange. If the cigar has any fillers, it is a natural filler that is made to enhance the flavor of the cigar. A good example would be the CAO Gold Honey Petit Corona which has orange blossom honey as one of its ingredients.

Cigars are an indulgence for aficionados and this is well understood and catered to by premium brands. Cigars have to be pulled, tasted and exhaled. Cigars are not inhaled like cigarettes. Use only a cigar lighter as an ordinary lighter would exude fumes.

Buy cigars from a store with good repute for proper advice and premium quality cigars.

It is not recommended to start with stronger cigars. Take the mild ones first and then proceed to the spicy ones.

Cigar smoking is a great hobby and a Palio Cutter is the top accessory to have. Learn how you can get the best deal on a cigar holder.
