Flavor–Extracting Flavor From Cigars

Monday, March 19th, 2012

I was a little pressed for time to do a proper review, so we’ll do something different today…

It’s been a while since I’ve done any kind of articles or videos that are geared towards new smokers (noobs). It crossed my mind that many smokers, ranging from new to seasoned, are missing out on a lot of the flavor that cigars have to offer. In fact, I’ve heard quite a few smokers say the flavors we describe is all in our heads, or maybe we just make it all up.

If you can only taste a “Smoke flavor” and you enjoy it, that’s great. Who am I to say you are wrong? Some smokers, new or old, want to explore the possibility of experiencing a bit more in terms of flavor. This was a realization I had as a new smoker pretty quickly, and it took cigar enjoyment to another level.

With that, I threw, and I mean threw, together a short video on how I extract flavors from cigar smoke. It may work for you, it may not.

And lastly… A lame video from some guy on the Internet does not compare to having a mentor to learn from. I am lucky that my friend and local tobacconist Ed Nazare of St. Pete Cigar really helped me out.

This video runs five minutes. Yes, I can get a little long winded. You already know this.
