Why Cigars Are So Relaxing
Cigars are an artfully crafted product that can offer a wide range of flavors, aromas, and complexities. In addition, they can provide enjoyment and relaxation. This is particularly true for cigar aficionados, who enjoy the process of trying different brands, regions and blends to develop a refined palate.
There are few, if any, consumable products that are as natural as a premium cigar. A cigar is made from one thing and one thing only – tobacco. The leaf is grown without the use of dyes or ripening accelerants, and its various alluring shades are produced through a natural, chemical-free process.
Compared to cigarettes, cigars take 30 minutes or more to smoke – providing an opportunity for relaxation and enjoyment of a great smoke. They are often enjoyed with friends and colleagues, providing a social experience that can help to create bonds and camaraderie.
The subtlety of cigar flavours is another reason to appreciate them. A good cigar will reveal a variety of notes and flavours in the mouth, ranging from sweet to spicy to bitter. Taking the time to fully enjoy a cigar can be a wonderful way to relax, unwind and escape from a hectic or demanding lifestyle.
Cigars are a great way to unwind and enjoy the company of friends or family, as well as to celebrate important milestones in life. Cigars are also a perfect accompaniment to an evening meal, port or brandy, and can be enjoyed with coffee, cocktails or wine.
