Cigar Tasting Tips with Jesus Fuego (video)

When it comes to cigar tasting tips, few people have better advice than Jesus Fuego of J.Fuego Cigars.

Transcript:

Hi, everybody. This is Jesus Fuego with J. Fuego Cigars. We’re here at BestCigarPrices.com talking cigars and talking cigar experiences.

Here’s a question that I get from a lot of smokers in my travels and in my events: How to better taste the cigar, how to better enjoy the cigars, and sometimes how to identify this flavor that people talk about.

I don’t consider myself that experienced to tell you exactly what to look for in a cigar, but I would say a good tip or a least what gives me a very good result is forget about the band. Try not to get influenced by the hype or the story behind the cigar, although I like the story, too, or I like parts of it.

I think a good way to enjoy a cigar is to get rid of any preconceived ideas and let the cigar talk to you, because at the end there are only two cigars: the one you like and the one you don’t. So I would say a nice way to enjoy a cigar is to just relax. Please, if you can help it, don’t smoke a cigar while you’re walking or when you’re in a hurry. Set time aside, light the cigar properly.

Personally, I like my cigars on the dry side but there are people who prefer their cigars more humid. Whatever your preference is, try to make it work. I think a good way to enjoy the cigar is to just relax and let the cigar talk to you, and keep in mind that there are a lot of people working behind that with the only goal of bringing enjoyment to you. So just don’t over-analyze it. Have fun with it.
