Pete Johnson, owner of Tatuaje Cigars, talks about how he started his company in 2003 in this 2019 interview with executive editor David Savona.
The Negatives of Smoking Cigars
Cigars are a great way to spend time with family or friends. However, they also have their downsides. These negatives range from causing irritation to others to posing a direct health threat.
Smoking cigars can cause cancer, heart disease, lung diseases, and other serious health problems. Those who are frequent smokers are at greater risk.
Smokers who quit smoking cigars usually experience a significant improvement in their health. This is because they will have lower blood pressure, pulse rate, and breathing patterns.
Quality of Cigars
High-quality cigars will be smooth, easy to burn, and taste delicious. They will also be durable, and have a nice appearance.
The age of a cigar is a vital component of its flavor. It helps dissipate any acidity that may be present in the tobacco, and it makes sure that its flavors are at their peak.
Strength & Body
A strong cigar is going to have more of an impact on the palate than a medium cigar, and it will be more bitter. On the other hand, a medium-bodied cigar is going to be balanced, with subtle flavors that won’t affect the taste buds too heavily.
The best mild cigars will be made from a Connecticut wrapper, which is light in color and flavor. These cigars tend to be more approachable, and are perfect for when you’re looking to unwind after a long day.
