Smoking Cigars with Christian Eiroa (video)

Christian Eiroa of CLE Cigars imparts some wisdom on how to better enjoy your cigar.


Hey, guys, Christian Eiroa with CLE Cigars and Eiroa Cigars.

We also get asked a lot about how to taste cigars and how to best enjoy cigars. Definitely, you’ve got to learn how to blow the smoke out your nose. That’s the most important trick. You put your tongue on the roof of your mouth, and just blow out very gently. Now, I warn you. You’re going to look very funny the first few times you do it. You’re going to make funny faces, but once you get it, you’re going to kick yourself for not having done it well before.

You know, as far as what to drink with them, I like whiskey. I like it nice and neat. I don’t like ice, don’t. No water just nice and neat. It gets your throat nice and warm, you’re able to enjoy it. But the most important part, make sure you select your location that you’re going to have a full hour, hour and a half to be completely relaxed. You don’t have to get up. I’m not a big smoker when I drive, and things like this. I have to make sure it’s a very comfortable environment where no one is going to bother me for a good amount of time.

I make sure I ask all the turkeys around me if nobody minds about the cigar smoke. If nobody minds, then I’m golden. But that’s the most important thing. Remember, this is the most selfish thing you can do for yourself. Make sure you make the time for it and enjoy it the right way.
