Here are a few of
the cigars we have tried and our very humble opinion on each.
The year was 1492. Christopher Columbus not only
discovered a New World, but a wonderful new enjoyment that is delighting
connoisseurs throughout the entire world to this day: Tobacco.
From tobacco came the cigar, and with it the unprecedented popularity that
spread throughout Europe and the United States, attracting presidents, kings,
generals, gentlemen, and a fair number of women. In fact, in 1900 an estimated
four out of five men in the U.S. were cigar smokers.
Cuba led the way in the cigar industry. Early in the 16th century, Cuban
peasants became tobacco growers. Later, the cigar became the country's national
symbol and the Havana cigar became recognized as the world's finest.
The takeover by Fidel Castro and the subsequent U.S. embargo were the start of
events that began to challenge Havana's supremacy in the world of cigars. Former
Cuban cigar-makers took their skills and seeds to the Caribbean, Dominican
Republic, Honduras and Mexico and began producing high-quality premium and
super-premium cigars for the American public.
Today, the pure pleasures of the premium cigar are all the rage. Cigars handmade
by experts from a choice blend of top-quality tobaccos and aged to perfection
are referred to as premium cigars.
The Dominican Republic alone produces almost half of the hand-made cigars sold
in the U.S.
Cigar smoking has burgeoned. Celebrities, industry leaders, politicians,
sophisticated women and men are seen at dinners and at smoking clubs enjoying
luxury cigars. The cigar is alive and well, and here to stay.
At Scotch and Cigars, we want you to enjoy the
best quality for the price. Our ranking system is different that those that
accept advertising dollars from cigar manufacturers. Although we may support
those that sell cigars, we don't accept advertising from the manufacturers
themselves. We feel that gives us the advantage of rating cigars without bias.
For more information on how we rate out cigars,
relight a cigar that you left sitting for awhile? The best way to do this is
tap off any remaining ash, then gently blow through the cigar to clear any
stale air. Then, as you light it, continue to blow gently through the cigar
with the flame at the foot for about three seconds before you take your
first draw. Doing this simple set of actions will greatly reduce any initial
sour flavor from a relit cigar.
