A Beginner’s Guide to Cigars, Part 1

By: Matthew Weisberg

Cigars, like any indulgence, vary in quality and taste. To get the most out of your cigar experience, follow these tips.

1. Choosing an Appropriate Cigar
If you are new to cigars, milder flavors will prove more palatable. Avoid stronger cigars as they tend to taste dreadful to those who are unaccustomed to the taste. Additionally, mild cigars are significantly less expensive than stronger ones, so you do not have to worry about feeling as if your money was wasted. As you grow used to the taste and texture of your cigars, ask smoking partners to recommend you a stronger brand and flavor.

2. Inspecting Cigars
Pick up the cigar you are contemplating and give it a gentle squeeze. Do you notice any soft or hard spots? Such texture indicates a bad draw, meaning the right amount of air will not move through the lit cigar. If your cigar should happen to be plugged, or packed too tightly to burn, return it to the vendor, explain your situation, and ask for a refund or exchange.

3. Protecting Cigars
Cigars retain their flavor and texture inside their cellophane wrapping. If you plan to smoke occasionally, buy just a few cigars at a time and keep them in their wrapping until you are ready to consume them. Uncovered cigars dry out quickly, so if you do unwrap a cigar and find yourself unable to smoke it, place it in a sealable bag or container. Consider investing in a humidor, a box that is specially designed to store and preserve cigars under optimum conditions.
