Many cigar lovers must have heard that cigars are alive and require careful care from the initial rolling, to sale, and then to your hands. And when you own a cigar, you can't smoke it immediately. You also need to give it enough room to grow, let it mature, and make its flavor more mellow. Therefore, every step of the cigar is delicate. If you don't take it seriously, the rewards it gives you may not be the most satisfactory.
Why can't you bite off the end of a cigar like you would a cigarette?
Because biting off the cigar head directly will make your mouth full of cigar tobacco. Firstly, it will make the cigar unsightly. In addition, if you bite it, the cut of the cigar will be irregular, and the integrity of the cigar cap will make the enjoyment smooth. And the smoothness of combustion is affected, which will also affect the texture and taste of cigars. Therefore, it is best not to bite off the cigar head directly.
Professional cigar cutters will cut the cap with a large cut, and the cigar will taste richer. The cut of the cap cut by the cigar cutter is small, and the burning speed of the cigar will be slower, which is suitable for those who have time to enjoy the cigar carefully. When everything is fully prepared for tasting the cigar, we use cigar scissors to cut the cap. Only when the cut is appropriate, smooth and of moderate caliber can the cigar taste the best. So we need a professional cigar cutter!
