18th March 2017A Guide to Understanding the Popular Flavours of Cigars
There are so many flavoured cigars available today that choosing which to buy becomes a challenge. The best practice is definitely to try out various options and determine which you enjoy the most. However, if you need some pointers on where to start, this guide to understanding the popular flavours of cigars should help you decide.
Remember that up to 75% of a cigar’s flavor can be from the wrapper, so you can’t always guess whether you would enjoy the piece or not simply by your initial reaction to the smell.
The Flavour of Earth
Surprisingly, this rather peculiar flavour is getting more popular nowadays. It literally does smell and even taste like earth, but not the kind kids eat at a playground for a dare. This type of cigar leaves a musky, salty, mineral aftertaste deep in the back of your throat. The flavour is a bit shocking at first, but it’s quite sobering in its general effect. This is the kind of cigar you should try if you have a fondness for strong, bitter tastes and want to give your palate the experience of dissecting the very essence of tobacco and the ground it comes from.
When people describe the taste of nuts, they usually say ‘buttery’ and it holds true for the cigars as well. Although, when smoking tobacco infused with nut essence, you get more of a ‘roasted buttery flavour’. These cigars vary based on nuts, and some of them (cashew and walnuts) have easily identifiable distinct tastes. However, sometimes it’s difficult to determine what kind of nut is used. In general, when smoking this variety, you will get a smooth and almost silky feeling at the back of your throat with the sharp taste of the nutty essence coating the inside of your mouth mid-inhale.
The Many Flavours of Spice
Of the many popular flavours of cigars no ‘category’ is so versatile as Spicy. There are dozens of spices, which allow for the creation of hundreds of flavours. You can enjoy both single-spice cigars, like cinnamon or clove, or a mix of the subtle, deliciously maddening aromas from exotic countries. This experience can be extremely different, depending on the spice in question. However, it’s sure to be enjoyable.
Fruit cigars are delicious and vary in the strength of flavour. Cherry is, probably, the most popular of them, but each kind is nice in its own way. If you are looking for something smooth and gentle, go for peaches. You can also try a mix, such as apple cider with cinnamon.
