What Makes A Quality Cigar?

There are a few key signs to watch out for to make sure your cigar is of high quality before wondering if it's right for you. Cigars professionals announce that quality control can be broken down into three headings: appearance uniformity, and smell. Let's take a look at each.

Uniformity

When viewing and handling cigars, be careful to ensure that the cigars are evenly covered. You can also buy high quality cigars via https://tabanerocigars.com/collections/cigars.

The cigar should feel the same way every time and there should be no extra slippery or hard spots – this indicates that the cigar is properly filled every time. Even filling means a smoother, more satisfying smoke. 

Appearance

The cigars should not only look and feel the same, but they should also look the same overall. That may sound silly, but there's definitely a lot you can say on the cover of a cigar. Take a look at the packaging, it should be professionally sealed, it should be close enough to the cigar, and be neat. 

Smell

The first whiff of the cigar should be almost as satisfying as the first drag. The cigar should give you ideas of what it is going to feel like before you’ve tried it. If you can't smell much when giving your preferred cigar a sniff, it’s apparently not going to taste great.
