Cut Your Cigar Cigar Sampler

Cutting a cigar is an art, a very simple but very important part to smoking a cigar. First, you start by selecting which wonderful smoke you’re going to want to light up. Once you've decided on the cigar, you must now choose the cut. Some people prefer to generally use a straight cut, others the punch cut and in a growing number, the V-cut. Myself I let the cigar choose the cut. A torpedo style cigar always in my opinion deserves a straight cut, but if you’re feeling adventurous you can also use a v-cut, but never a punch for a torpedo. Also I would never use a punch or even a v-cut on anything bigger then robusto size cigar (6 x 50) about the general size. The reason is that while it may start out great, when it gets to the really great part ( for me it’s the last 3rd) it can make the cigar burn hot, and create a bitter taste with the buildup of tar in the cap. Now I will definitely use a punch on a petite robusto (anything 5 ½ x 50 and under) unless the ring gauge is too small (probably not under a 45). Also last but not least, nothing else but a proper cigar cutter should be used to cut your cigar and not to cut “shoulder level”. Both of these can cause the cigar to unravel creating a very unpleasant smoking experience. There is but only one exception to not using a cutter and you actually use your teeth is when the cigars cap is a “pig tail” finish. The pig tail is designed to be bit off and smoked just like that. Some tips for cutting a cigar without having a cutter if needed is to use a golf tee or your finger nails to place a hole in the cap.

Montecristo White Rothchilde (5 x 52) With outstanding construction and a golden blond Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed shade wrapper, the Montecristo White Rothchilde is a fantastic smoke. The larger ring size packs more of the famous Montecristo White blend with aromas of wood and nuts.

La Gloria Cubana Wavell (5 x 50) La Gloria Cubana utilizes an Ecuadorian grown Colorado shade wrapper, or Connecticut Broadleaf maduro, concealing an extensively aged blend of Mexican, Dominican, Brazilian, and Nicaraguan filler leaves. The La Gloria Wavell is the number 1 seller in the entire La Gloria Cubana line of cigars.

CAO Consigliere Associate (5 x 52) The Cigar is back! The CAO consigliere a re-release from an extremely popular CAO, which was launched in 2007 but was discontinued in 2013! An amazing cigar that was scored in the top 25 by Cigar Aficionado. While smoking this cigar you can see why it would have received such a high rating. With a dark, oily Brazilian Maduro wrapper with a perfect blend of tobaccos from Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Honduras that leaves sweet hints of cinnamon and nuts on the palate.

Romeo y Julieta 1875 Bully (5 x 50) The Romeo y Julieta Bully cigar is blended with the finest Dominican filler tobacco and has an Indonesian wrapper. It has the flavors of aged cedar, nuts, and spice, this classic cigar is smooth and well balanced.

Montecristo Red Robusto (5 x 50) The new Montecristo Red is the best Montecristo ever made at the Menendez y Garcia cigar factory in La Romana, makers of all Montecristo cigars, as well as Romeo y Julieta and H. Upmann. This cigar is extra rich, smooth and savory. The delicate golden Connecticut wrapper is married exquisitely with an impeccable blend yielding complex and creamy flavors.
