The Art of Cigar Smoking
Cigar smoking is a leisurely activity. Since rules and leisure don’t often mix, consider these guidelines. The best part about knowing the rules is understanding when and why it’s OK to break them.
Take your time. A minute or two between puffs is a nice pace
Use a legitimate cigar cutter
Slightly toast the foot of the cigar before beginning to smoke it
Grip the cigar between your thumb and index finger
When done, let it go out on its own
Carry a spare
Ask to try someone’s cigar they’re currently smoking
Use your teeth to clench or chew on your cigar
Use a pen knife or box cutter
Toast the cigar with direct contact from a flame — give it some space
Relight it in your mouth. Simply scrape the ash, and turn it in the flame
Linger with your finished cigar
