Find A Tobacconist









Tobacconist Tip
#177
If you want to dissect a cigar and understand the individual components and their aromas, you can perform an aromatic ashtray analysis. First, take the cigar apart and separate the wrapper, binder, and different filler leaves. The filler leaves will be distinguished by their color and texture. Then, light the individual components in as ashtray, one at a time, and smell the aromas. Keep a bucket of water handy in case the fire/embers get out of hand.
