What is a good Cuban cigar

The debate has raged on for a very long time over which is the best Cuban cigar. The fact of the matter is, there are so many different and amazing Cuban cigar brands (Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas, etc) for you to choose from that it is impossible to choose just one.

It has a lot to do with your personal taste because every cigar is going to be a little bit different. Even different cigars within the same brand are going to be unique in their own way, especially a high-end cigar that is made from great tobacco and is hand rolled. If you live in an area which allows Cuban cigars, those are by far the most popular. However, a real cigar connoisseur may have another favorite or perhaps several favorites from other areas of the world.

Since it is impossible to really pin down which cigar is best, it is important for you to understand exactly what goes into a cigar and the different ways in which they are judged. People who love cigars really tend to be fanatical about the ones that they smoke. They may even have their own snipping and lighting ritual which they follow religiously every time that they light up. They would simply be out of their element if they didn’t have a high-end cigar in their hand. What is it, however, that makes a cigar great?

A cigar is basically made up of three different parts, the core, the binder and the wrapper. Each of these add something that is very unique to a cigar and unless all three are high quality, and the cigar is well constructed, you will not really be able to enjoy it to its full potential. You also have several other ways to judge which cigars you will enjoy. For example, the color varies from cigar to cigar, depending on the tobacco that is used. The size is also different, typically referred to as the vitola.

If you have been smoking cigars for any time length, you will easily recognize the difference between the various cigars. Even if you had two very nice cigars to compare, they can be as different as night and day as far as taste is concerned.

There are, of course, many other ways for you to pick a good cigar. The best thing that you can do in this regard, however, is to simply begin smoking them and to get a taste for the various brands. It will not take you long to be able to distinguish one from the other and to pick one that is your personal favorite. Start off with something mild in taste like the Fonseca and work your way up to a Partagas or Montecristo and then finally Cohiba cigars.
