Choosing The Right Cigars
It can incredibly difficult to find the perfect gift for someone, even if you know them extremely well. However, if you know someone who enjoys cigars, then you can relax. Here we will look into the ins and outs of cigars and everything you need to know about finding that ideal gift.
It is possible to categorise cigars in several different ways: shape, strength, origin, manufacturing and size. The size of a cigar is determined by the length in inches and the cigar diameter which is commonly measured in 64ths of an inch. Each length and ring size has its own name such as Churchill, Cigarillo, Robusto, and the largest cigar of them all, The Giant. The clue is in the name with this particular cigar, as it is 9 inches in length and has a ring size of 52.
Colour & Shape
When the size of the cigar has been determined, you can begin to look at the colour. The exterior wrapper of each cigar is an indication of the leaves within and the cigars curing method. The shape of a cigar will often vary from brand to brand, with a slight flare, tapering or pyramid style.
If you are purchasing cigars for an aspiring connoisseur, it may be beneficial for you to begin your search at a tobacconist who can recommend some milder flavours to start off with. A milder cigar will cost you a lot less than a stronger flavour, and the person receiving the gift will be able to learn everything they need to know and practice without ruining an expensive cigar.
Getting the most out of your cigar is incredibly important. “Starting from the bottom and working your way up” is invaluable advice that can bring you a variety of benefits when searching for cigars. If you are getting used to your cigar experiences whilst using expensive brands then you are certain to waste a lot of money.
Finally, leave the biting off of the tip to the gangsters seen in various films. Using a sharp cutter is an invaluable part of your cigar accessories. You can find all the cigars, accessories and information you could ever need at a reliable tobacconist in your area today.
