A cigar is a great way to relax.You have to know how to choose the right cigar, cut it, and light it.The flavor of a cigar is more important than the smell.If you want to learn how to smoke a cigar in no time at all, follow these steps.
Step 1: You should be familiar with the different types of cigars.
You should know how to distinguish different types of cigars.When choosing a cigar, ask the salesman for help.Being aware of the different types of cigars will make you feel more knowledgeable when you start smoking them.There are different types of cigars to choose from.The name is the Corona.The diameter of the cigar is 6 inches (15.2 cm) by 42 ring gauge.There is an open foot and a closed and rounded head on this cigar.There is a pyramid.The cigar has a closed head.The torpedo.The cigar has a bulge in the middle and a pointed head.The Perfecto.This cigar has a bulge in the middle and two closed ends that make it a rounder cigar.The name is the Panatela.The cigar is longer and thinner than the Corona.There is a Culebra.The cigar is braided together.It appears to be a thick rope.
Step 2: A mild cigar is a good choice.
Sampling a few different types of cigars is necessary to get started.Don’t buy an entire box of the same kind of cigar, only to find that you dislike the first one.You can find a variety of cigars that fit your needs.A mild cigar will be less expensive but will have a less intense flavor and is better for beginners.The bigger the cigar, the more intense it will be.The longer and thinner cigar is less likely to make you cough if you’re a beginner.
Step 3: The cigar needs to be inspected.
You should squeeze the cigar to make sure there are no hard or soft spots.This could mean that the cigar won’t be smokable or that it will give you a bad draw.The tobacco at the end and the wrapper of the cigar should not be discolored.
Step 4: Store the cigar in a way that is appropriate.
Make sure to transfer your cigars into the box immediately if you own or have purchased a humidor.If you don’t own one, only buy a few cigars at a time, because they will dry out in a couple of days.Don’t remove the wrapping.Don’t leave a cigar unattended.They can be stored in Tupperware or another sealed container.
Step 5: The cigar has a blade on it.
The cap is placed on the head of the cigar to keep it from drying out.Ideally, you’ll be using a guillotine, but you can also use a sharp knife or blade.Unless you want to tear the cigar, don’t use dull scissors, teeth, or butter knife.If you want to put the cigar in position, just tap the head with the blade.Don’t cut into it yet.To keep the cap from falling off, aim the blade at the place where the cigar meets the wrapper.
Step 6: Cut the cigar.
The goal in cutting it is to allow you to smoke the cigar.The guillotine is held with one hand and the cigar with the other.Place the head of the cigar into the guillotine and cut into its cap, which is about 1/16 to 1/6 of an inch down.Cut off the cap or head with a knife.If you do it slowly, you will be more likely to tear the wrapper.
Step 7: The lighter should be the right one.
Long wood matches or butane lighters won’t change the flavor of the cigar.Don’t use scented candles, gas lighters, or paper matches.You can get a cigar lighter at the store where you bought your cigars.
Step 8: The tobacco should be warm in the foot of the cigar.
You will actually light the foot of the cigar.If you want to warm the foot, hold the flame below it and rotate the cigar a few times.It will make it easier to light your tobacco.
Step 9: The cigar should be lit.
Don’t touch the flame in front of the cigar.So that the cigar is lit, inhale just enough.Don’t breathe in the smoke.
Step 10: Blow on the foot of the cigar.
It is possible to make sure that the light is evenly distributed.The lit portions of the cigar will light up orange if you turn the lit end towards your mouth.
Step 11: Smoke it.
You can draw in the smoke by holding the cigar up to your mouth.If you want to taste it, hold it in your mouth for a few seconds.The smoke came from a cigar.A cigar isn’t the same as a cigarette.The flavor is meant to be enjoyed.
Step 12: The cigar should be rotation every 30 seconds to a minute.
Continue to do this to keep the cigar in tip top shape.A good cigar can last up to 3 hours.
Step 13: The band should be removed after twelve puffs.
The band is placed on the cigar to stop the tobacco from tearing, but you won’t need it anymore once your cigar is lit.The band will fall off on its own, due to the heat, after twelve or so puffs.
Step 14: You can enjoy a cigar with an alcoholic beverage.
An alcoholic beverage can enhance the smoking experience and bring out the flavors of the cigar.Red wine is one of the most common beverages for smoking a cigar.Coffee can bring out the flavor in a cigar.AnIPA beer is a perfect companion to almost any cigar because it has the same flavor as a cigar.It’s a great drink to have with a cigar.A Martini can also be enjoyed with a cigar.
Step 15: When you’re done smoking, Extinguish the cigar.
Put it in the ashtray.After a minute or two, the cigar will burn itself out.If you blow through the cigar, you will be able to expel the smoke.Most aficionados prefer to throw out a partially smoked cigar because it results in a strong, bitter taste.
