How To Cut And Smoke A Cigar?

Which end of the cigar do you cut?

On a new cigar, one end — the “foot” — is already open.

The other end — the “cap” — is enclosed by a small piece of tobacco leaf that’s separate from the main wrapper.

As the cap end of the cigar will go in your mouth, it must be cut open before you can smoke it.

How do you prepare a cigar for smoking?

To prepare for your first smoke, hold the cigar in your hands and place the tip just above the flame. If you stick the cigar directly into the flame, it can dramatically affect the flavour. Allow the cigar to burn slightly to prime the tobacco before taking your first puffs.

Do you have to cut a cigar?

Short answer- YES most likely! While some cigars don’t need to be cut, most of our range do. Machine made cigars and cigarillos are pre-cut, but almost every other cigar is hand rolled and will need to be cut before you can smoke them.
