Cigars 101

Why do my cigars keep going out on me?

Neither retailers nor the factories do anything to the cigars that would cause them go out prematurely. Coincidentally, I recently had a cigar that kept going out almost every time I put in in the saddle of the ashtray. It was also a 60 ring gauge, which could have had something to do with it. That’s a lot of tobacco to keep lit. As you know, unlike cigarettes, a cigar will go out if left unattended. So, if your cigars keep going out, here are a few pointers which may help you:

Another factor could be the cigars had a too much ligero in the filler; the binder was either not properly cured, or it was improperly bunched. Ligero is very oily and will burn poorly if not aided by the binder. Or, it could also have been the wrapper was too moist, too oily, or a combination of all of the above.
