Bands on or off?

It matters not to me whether the band is left on while the cigar is being smoked; really, who cares? Someone unfamiliar with cigars, and the bands on the cigars, is not going to be impressed by a paper ring. And, those who are familiar with cigars – especially a connoisseur smoker – can immediately tell by the ‘perfume’ in the air whether the cigar is quality or not. In my opinion, band on or band off – lit or un-lit – there’s nothing finer than a Fuente Curly Head maduro.
