We took a look at three tips that you should bear in mind when smoking a cigar. I think my favorite of the three is to find a good drink to go with the cigar. Well, letâ€™s take a look at some things that you can consider and which will help you enjoy your cigar better.
Expand your horizons.
What do I mean by this? As a new cigar smoker, do not try just one brand or flavor. After all, you do not have much experience with the different kinds of cigars out there. Though you may start with something that a trusted friend has recommended, I suggest that you do yourself a favor and try many different kinds. You can actually buy sampler packs, which contain many different cigars in one container. This way, you can find out for yourself which kind you really prefer and at the same time, you do not spend too much money buying a bundle of each kind. This also actually applies to the more experienced smokers as well. Sampler packs are a great way to discover new kinds of cigars without weighing heavily on the pocket.
Never put a partially smoked cigar back in your humidor.
Seasoned smokers know better than to do this but a lot of newbies have made this mistake. If you do not finish smoking a cigar, either put it in a cigar savor or just throw it away.
