My first cigar was a medium/full cigar, nothing in my stomach and ended up on the couch for an hour sick haha. I didn't let that experience ruin cigars for me though and kept on learning.
I totally did that when I first started. I made this video (not the best quality) about not getting sick.My first cigar was a medium/full cigar, nothing in my stomach and ended up on the couch for an hour sick haha. I didn't let that experience ruin cigars for me though and kept on learning.
This was also my noob mistake. Now as long as my RH is between the ranges of 63% and 70% I leave em alone. I would also constantly check the RH when I got my first setup.My noob mistake was freaking out about RH. I have a tupperdor set up inside a wine cooler and couldn't get the RH down with boveda's. Or so I thought.. Ended up being a hygrometer issue and once I got that figured out it reads steady at 65%.
Noob here,Not a mistake, but something a buddy taught me: if your smoke is getting too hot and making it difficult to enjoy the flavor gently blow through the cigar rather than drawing, this will make your cherry hot and give you a good draw but cause (at least) the next few pulls to be cooled down quite a bit.
I think I still have the crime scene photos..lolYou're not alone.
There's someone else here who punctured himself looking for a sandwich under his truck seat.
Spanish cedar is Cedrela odorata and is found in central/south America and even Africa around Cameroon. It is definitely not in the cedar family at all, it is an alternative to mahogany in those parts of the world, and used for humidors, mmmmm.Red, white, yellow, northern, western, eastern, you name it cedar is not the same as Spanish Cedar.
Using cedar instead of Spanish Cedar is like cooking with castor oil instead olive oil. Both are oils and have oil in the name, but the end product ain't the same, and neither will be the enjoyment. Same goes with Spanish Cedar and other cedar both are wood and have cedar in the name, but the end product ain't the same and neither will be the enjoyment.
The key to short fillers is to use a punch.. Trust me..I'm the king of short fillersWent to my local B&M and quickly went for the bottom shelf for some of the daily cheapies I like to buy. Grabbed one from a brand not familiar to me trying to expand my horizons. Took it home and cut it, expecting to smoke immediately. On the pre-light draw I took in a bunch of small bits of the filler tobacco. Quickly researched and found it to be a short filler stick.
Wasn't a bad smoke save for picking the bits off my tongue for the next hour. Lesson learned, check before buying
