best-flavored-cigars

If you haven’t tried a flavored cigar you could be missing out on a magnificent cigar smoking experience. Flavored cigars are not for everyone, but those who do enjoy them often exclusively smoke flavored cigars.

Beginning cigar smokers should not be dissuaded by some alleged cigar ‘experts’ who claim flavored cigars aren’t true cigars. The reality is, a good flavored cigar can be a nice sweet treat, and an inexpensive way to enjoy a relaxing smoke.

There are a lot of brands, sizes, and flavors to choose from, but here are five of the best flavored cigars that are on the market today:

  • Price: $119.00 (box of 20 – Corona) – $5.95 per cigar

One of the more interesting and unique flavors available, the CAO Moontrance has a bourbon vanilla flavor blended with exotic fruits. In addition to those flavors, they even manage to slip in a little honey essence to top it off. It sounds like an abundance of flavors, but they all blend together nicely to create a sweet little smoke. CAO also offers other flavors like Bella Vanilla, Earth Nectar, Eileen’s Dream, and Gold Honey. Continue reading “Top 5 Best Flavored Cigars” »

How to Properly Light a Cigar

Lighting a cigar is not rocket science, but there are a few things to remember to make sure that it is done right.

First, you must choose the method for lighting your cigar. This is a choice between matches and lighters. Either method is acceptable, but be careful because not all matches are equal, and not all lighters will yield the same results.

How to Cut a Cigar

Properly cutting a cigar is crucial to the enjoyment of your smoking experience. The head (the end of the cigar that you put in your mouth) needs to be opened to allow proper air to flow through the cigar. There are many ways to achieve a cut, but there are really only three that are still popular and effective.

How a Cigar Wrapper Influences Flavor

cigar-wrappers

A cigar’s wrapper influences the experience of a cigar greatly. The wrapper doesn’t just dictate the outer appearance of the cigar, it can contribute as much at 10% of the flavor of the cigar. Some wrappers are oilier than others, some are thicker than others, some are lighter colors, and each of these factors contributes to the taste and smoking experience of a cigar.

    Nub

    4 x 60

  • Country of Origin:

    Nicaraguan

Oliva Cigar Co., the makers of the Oliva Serie V – “Rated 94” and “The Top Cigar of the Year” by Cigar Aficionado – have introduced a new cigar innovation that is creating tremendous buzz. “Nub”, is a genius concept that seeks to deliver only that most enjoyable part of the cigar. The idea for the nubs came from cigar enthusiast Sam Leccia’s theory that a cigar finds its “sweet spot” at the 3 ½- 4 inch point. All “nub” cigars must exist within this window. No “nub” is longer than 4 inches. The cigar starts at the sweet spot and gets better from there. The large ring gauge allows for a dense ash which insulates the cigar keeping it cool as you smoke. The large amount of smoke also allows you to really enjoy the complex flavors.

Cigar Smoking Etiquette

By Richard Greco

Cigar smokers are not a rambunctious bunch, more a respectable group of enthusiasts who have an elegant taste for tightly rolled tobacco. But being one of these enthusiasts does not come easy, cigar smoking is accompanied with some unwritten rules that if not abided by, can be accountable for giving all cigar smokers a bad name.
To start from the beginning when holding a cigar, the proper grasp is between the thumb and index finger. Most people try to put the cigar between their index and middle finger, like a cigarette, but that right off the bat will be the telltale sign of a cigarette smoker, not a cigar enthusiast.

All About Avanti Cigars

When it comes to smoking cigars everyone has this ideal image of sitting in a nice chair with a glass of aged scotch and a Cuban sparked up between their lips, but you may not need to go to Cuba to find the right cigar. America has been producing cigars for years and although they may not have the novelty of a Cuban, for the past 25 years many smokers have been happy with their choice to pull on the end of an Avanti.

Avanti Cigars

The Bourbon and Anisette flavor is packed with fresh tobacco grown strictly in Kentucky and Tennessee because the nutrients in the soil help create a heavy flavor that is bound to leave a warm feeling in your stomach and a little light headedness as well. After the 100% real tobacco is machine-rolled, an Avanti is dry-cured in hickory smoke and aged four months to reach maximum flavor.
