Compiled by Marcy Shortuse Contributing writers Xander Kyle, Sabado Domingo and Gary Korb of Famous Smoke Shop This is the first in a three-segment series on how to seek perfection in three very important things – the perfect cigar, the perfect steak and the perfect coffee. It’s amazing how dried, fermented tobacco rolled into leaves can change a person’s life. If you’re an aficionado of a good cigar, you understand what it means to take a quiet moment after dinner and sit down with a glass of good port or whiskey and a cigar that makes you happy. Everyone’s taste in cigars is different, though, so sometimes it’s hard to pick one you truly are fond of. We have put together some tips for you as to finding the right cigar, pairing the perfect cigar and a little do-it-yourself cigar repair. After all, if you’re going to have a vice you might as well explore its perfection! An Introduction to Cigars Among the many discussions smokers have about their smokes, every cigar smoker will agree that cigars are very subjective to personal preference. Overall, cigars are a great, positive experience for both newcomers and seasoned veterans alike. Maybe, like many, you like to come home after a hard day at work and enjoy a full-bodied cigar on the porch to de-stress. For others, it might only be when special occasions call for it. The one thing held in consensus is, cigars are best shared amongst friends. If you’re among the first of your friends to venture out onto the cigar scene you might have to play the role of tour guide. Be sure to show them around, teach them the intricate nuances of premium cigars and share your stogie knowledge. Be warned, it can be a little tricky when trying to bring your friends in, as you don’t want to throw too much at them and turn them off from cigars forever - no pressure or anything, right? The devil is in the details. Where, when and how you introduce them to it matters, keep in that mind that your duty is to ensure that your friends are welcomed in with ease.
