Cigar Tips

It is traditional for a man to light up his own cigar, not allowing another to light it for you. Lighting up a cigar for a female is acceptable so long as she is smoking the cigar herself.

Make sure you do not light the cigar for a woman before asking her permission. Women more commonly abstain from smoking cigars and will find such notion offensive.

A cigar is not a cigarette. Lighting up a cigar is more intimate and personal.

Make sure to avoid inhaling deeply or frequently. Doing such will cause the cigar to overheat, resulting in an unpleasant aroma and smoking experience.

Smoking a cigar is to be done in a gentlemen’s manner. If your cigar smoke is bother others, move away or put it out

When you are done smoking, treat the cigar with the respect it deserves. Leave the stub in the ashtray and let it die naturally. If you insist on crushing it violently, be prepared for dirty fingers, undesirable smoke and a foul odor.

It is entirely acceptable to feel and smell the cigar in the store when purchasing. Avoid placing the cigar too close to your nose since nobody else wants your germs unless you are prepared to purchase such cigar.

A good cigar is soft and supple: the ultimate testament to its quality. On the other hand, if you feel lumps or voids along the shaft of the cigar, it is a poor quality product.

When you take a cigar out, squeeze it softly to avoid cracking it, if it is too dry, or seems to clog while smoking, it is most likely due to an overly firm roll.

If you suspect that the cigar is out, give it a couple of puffs, it may rekindle a hidden flame; a cigar does not like to be ignored for too long.

A cigar needs to be relit before it cools off in the event that it is extinguished. Relighting the cigar will only create a smoke akin to a bond fire, which is not the same as it was originally. Keep in mind that a cigar can self ignite up to an hour after it has been ignored.

Do not bite the tip of the cigar, it will clog the air pathway and result in a poor taste; the cigar in turn will bite you back.

According to Dr. Froid, the father of Psychoanalysis, a cigar is a phallic symbol. When someone makes this remark, you may respond, “Occasionally, a cigar is just a cigar”.

When you walk into a humidor, remember to close the door behind you, so the humidity and delicate aroma do not disappear.

Long and steady ash at the tip of a cigar is a testament to its solid construction. When the ash is good and ready, a crack will form between it and the cigar. Only a gentle tap will be needed to properly dispose of the ash into the tray.
