• Why do I have to use a special lighter for my cigar?

To ensure a good smoking experience, it’s recommended to use a butane lighter or long wooden cigar matches to light your cigars. Both of these options provide an even and consistent heat source and do not affect the taste or aroma of the tobacco.

  • Can I smoke half my cigar now and the other half later?

It’s recommended to smoke a cigar in one sitting as it tends to lose its flavour due to the retained heat in the tobacco if left unsmoked for an extended period of time. It’s important to take the time to relax and enjoy the smoking process without feeling rushed.

  • Why do I have to Cut the cigar?

Cutting the cap of a cigar creates an opening for airflow making the cigar more enjoyable. Additionally, cutting the cigar the right way is very important as it can affect the taste of the cigar and the whole smoking experience.

  • What is the best cutter to use for my cigar?

The choice of cigar cutter largely depends on personal preference and experience. There are several types of cutters available including: cigar scissors, v-cutters, straight guillotine cutters and punch cutters. If you’re new to smoking cigars, it’s recommended to start with a guillotine cutter as it’s easy to use and provides a clean cut.

  • How do I store my cigar collection?

Cigars should be stored in a humidor. A humidor is designed to maintain a consistent level of temperature and humidity with the ideal humidity level being 65%-72% .

  • I have a humidor and yet my cigars keep drying up. Did I get a faulty humidor?

If you find that your cigars are drying out even though they are stored in a humidor, it’s possible that the humidor itself is faulty. However, to eliminate the possibility of a faulty humidor, it’s important to consider whether the humidor box was properly seasoned before storing the cigars. Additionally, it’s important to regularly check the humidity level inside the humidor and ensure it is within the normal range for storing cigars. By doing so, you can ensure that your cigars are stored in the best possible conditions and reduce the risk of them drying out.

  • Should I throw away my dry cigars?

You can attempt to rehydrate dry cigars by storing them in a properly humidified environment such as a humidor, but it’s important to note that the process of restoring them to their original condition can take a significant amount of time, and there’s a possibility that some of the essential oils and flavors may be lost in the process. Additionally, if the cigars have become too dry and brittle to the point of cracking or breaking, rehydration may not be successful, and the cigars may need to be discarded.
