How To Smoke Hamlet Mini Cigars
Instructions for smoking cigars
Please do not expect a treatise on how to or should smoke a cigar properly. Because on this topic there are no general truths, at most instructions for what seems appropriate and what you should better only do in your own garden or on your own balcony….
But we want to try to give you an idea from the beginning to the actual smoking process because there are a lot of decisions to be made between these two points. It starts with the choice of cigar, continues with the choice of accessories, doesn't stop with lighting and ends with the cigar being placed in the appropriate ashtray.
1. The choice of cigars
2. The “right” accessories for smoking a cigar
3. The right fire
4. Lighting and smoking a cigar
The choice of cigars
The first question is the one with the greatest complexity, because the range of cigars available in Germany is huge and is getting bigger and bigger. In addition to the "classic" manufacturing countries such as Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua or Honduras, Panama, Mexico and Brazil are increasingly coming into focus. But Germany too has a tradition that cannot be neglected, as do Italy, Belgium and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. A good 100 years ago there were hundreds of factories producing cigars in Germany alone. Unfortunately, not more than a handful of factories remain from this tradition, but unfortunately this is the case in all European countries. On the one hand, that's the time that goes by, on the other hand, the cigar as a luxury item is no longer the first choice. It is all the more important to explain why it is right to smoke a cigar. So now we have come a little closer to the first question. Where should the cigar come from? The next step now comes in the form of a table in which we try to outline the specifications and possibilities of the individual countries.
We apologize for the simplicity of this approach:
|country||Growing areas||Brands||General flavors and strength|
|Cuba||Vuelta Abajo, Semi Vuelta, Partido, Vuelta Arriba||Cohiba, Romeo y Julieta, Montecristo, Bolivar, Jose L. Piedra, Guantanamera||Earth, honey, very spicy, everything from medium to very strong|
|Nicaragua||Esteli, Nueva Segovia, especially the Jalapa Valley||Joya de Nicaragua, Padilla, Padron, Oliva, Don Pepin Garcia, La Aroma del Caribe||Creamy, earthy, coffee, chocolate, wood, medium to very strong|
|Honduras||Lopan, Danli, Ulla Valley, Chamelecon Valley||Flor de Selva, Carlos Torano, Rocky Patel, Alec Bradley||Creamy, woody, nutty, fruity, mild to medium-strong|
|Dominican Republic||Cibao Valley||Davidoff, Don Diego, Arturo Fuente, La Aurora, Macanudo, Griffins, La Flor Dominicana||Fruity, woody, sweet, nutty, very mild to very strong, with the|
|Mexico||San-Andre´s-Tuxtha valley||Santa Clara, Capa Flor||Spicy, nutty, sweet, medium-strong to strong|
|Holland||Tobacco is imported||De Olifant, Panter, Biddies, La Paz, Wintermanns||Spicy, nutty, woody, sweet, often flavored, mild to medium-strong|
|Germany||Tobacco is imported||Handelsgold, Clubmaster, Independence||mild to medium-strong, much flavored|
Not all countries are represented here, Brazil, for example, Panama, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, the Canary Islands, the Philippines or Indonesia are missing. However, these countries do not have very extensive production.
Now for a choice: If you are a non-smoker, start in the Dominican Republic, not Cuba, the nicotine content of the cigar would literally blow you away. As a smoker, you can also choose mild Cubans (sic) or cigars from Honduras as a starting point, as you are more trained in handling nicotine. In the format, you can see what you like and how much time you are willing to invest, because in extreme cases that can be 2 or 3 hours. But you shouldn't have less than 30 minutes either, because then you're wrong with the cigars. Which cigars you smoke is up to you in the end. As in any situation in life, testing is a good decision.
A couple of cigars to get you started:
The "right" accessories for smoking a cigar
The only really important thing at the beginning is the right fire and a tool to cut the cigar. You can basically choose between three forms of cutting distinguish: cutting, drilling, punching. The latter is a method that is rarely used. When punching, a notch is punched in the cigar head with the help of a so-called V-cutter. The cigar punch works in a similar way, it is a sharpened ring that is pressed into the head of the cigar to create a smoke opening. These two methods have the advantage that the cover sheet and in particular the cap remain intact in any case. When cutting, the area for pulling is larger, but the risk also increases that the cover sheet and not just the cap is accidentally cut. Suitable tools are the cigar cutter or cigar scissors. With small cigars you cut better, with larger cigars the drill is more suitable, at some point you will use both on a cigar, you will see.
Ashtray, humidor or case, these are questions that beginners of cigar smoking do not have to ask, even an experienced cigar smoker needs a lot of advice. It won't be cheap, so much is revealed. Serious humidors for 50 and more cigars cost a lot of money. With a small travel humidor, you are fully equipped to begin with and you will also find the right humidification solution. Oh yes, and the ashtray: It should have storage space for 2-4 cigars, friends come over quickly, and cigarettes really have no place in it.
The most important accessories:
The right fire
This has been clarified more comprehensively elsewhere, here only the principles: No gasoline, only charcoal filtered gas for the jet lighters and a lighter that is a match for your cigar. If matches, then no sulfur sticks or cedar shavings (American cedar and not mothball cedar). Please never use candles for lighting, the wax has an effect on the flame and, similar to gasoline, you can throw away the cigar that has been lit in this way. But you want to smoke your cigars properly, so stick to that.
Light up and smoke a cigar
This is where the magic comes in. Let's light the cigar in peace and then, then the magic happens. Before doing this, you can cut the cigar using one of the methods presented above, then pull out forcefully. Now you can on the one hand check the puff and on the other hand aromas appear here that you will find again in the course of the smoke. Then grab your source of fire and ROAST the foot of the cigar from a distance, with no direct contact between the fire and the cigar. Then make the entire area glow. Always stop and blow, when everything is burning evenly, the cigar can be put in your mouth. The following applies here: Smoking cigars takes time and if someone thinks that smoking a cigar on the lungs is a good idea, no! I. E. You pull the cigar 1-2 times per minute, sometimes a little faster, sometimes slower, the cigar must not get too hot, otherwise it will become bitter and the essential oils will simply be lost. And that's what makes the experience and the magic: maybe you taste cinnamon, maybe anise, certainly coffee or cocoa or nuts, earth can also taste, but sometimes also fully ripe black cherries. Incredible? We tell you, sorcery.
