How to Select A Quality Cigar

Do you enjoy the taste of cigars but don't know how to tell if they are high quality or not? Below are several tips we've learned over the years that can help you spot good cigars in the future.

Step #1: Closely Examine the Cigar 

One way you can tell if a cigar is top quality is by closely examining it. What is the cigars condition? The outer wrapper should not have any tears. You should also be wary of cigars that are discolored, spotted or that don't have a consistent color. Be on the lookout for cigars that have a slight sheen or luster. 

Step #2: Roll the Cigar Around in Your Hand to See How it Feels

Avoid cigars that feel dry or flaky. Quality cigars should feel solid and not brittle like it's going to break apart as soon as you pick it up. Cigars should feel consistently firm without any divots. Avoid smoking dry cigars since it will probably have a bitter taste. If you enjoy the cigar brand and have patience, you can save bring it back to life with a humidifier if the wrapper isn't cracked and oils haven't yet evaporated from the tobacco fillers. 

Step #3: Notice How the Cigar Smells

Lastly, hold the cigar up to your nose and take a deep breath. Do you like the way it smells? If you enjoy how the cigar smells you'll probably enjoy how it tastes after you light it up.
