Smoking cigars is an elegant way to enjoy tobacco and a ritual, too. The cigar is an iconic product and a status symbol surrounded by legend and secrets, so here are a few things that you might not have known before:
- Cuban cigars are still the most renowned, but no longer the best – the cigars from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Dominican Republic are becoming more and more appreciated by connoisseurs and not only for their favorable price, but also for their quality and can be found through Denver distributors;
- Cuban cigar manufacturers employ readers – the best Cuban cigars are made manually while someone reads the daily papers or some fiction aloud to entertain the workers;
- The most experienced cigar rollers can make up to around 200 cigars a day;
- One single cigar might contain as much nicotine as an entire pack of cigarettes, that’s why cigar smoke should never be inhaled and most cigar enthusiasts do not smoke on a daily basis. If you are a cigarette smoker just about to try a cigar for the first time, be very careful and pay attention not to swallow the smoke – swallowing the smoke is a reflex of cigarette smokers and doing it with cigar smoke might cause not only severe coughing, but stomach irritation, nausea and dizziness as well.
