When you buy a box with cuban cigars the first thing that you do when you get the box is to check every cuban cigar from it to be sure that dont have cigar beetles. You never know what issues you can discover on them, and considering that you pay quite an amount of cash you need to know if the cigars are without defects. However, when you check them you realize that they don’t have any issues. So, you take a cigar in your hand, cut its cap and light it up. Afterwards, you notice that the burn is not even. What can you do in such case? Or, why this thing happened?
Usually, a bad burn appears because of the smoker. He rushed in lighting the cigar or he didn’t use the right combustion item, and it has simple happened. Now, there are different types of bad burns that can put in jeopardy your cigar, as a following you will not be able to properly enjoy your cigar.
Canoeing bad burn it is the most common issue that can appear during a smoke. This type of burn can be easily identified sometimes the people that grow tobacco at home know how identify this bad burn. You will notice that on a side the cigar is burning faster than on the other side. Actually, this thing means that on a side the cigar is overheated, while on the other side not. So, a smoker can easily identify and stop this bad burn by paying extra attention to both sides of the cigar. You will have to smoke the cigar more slowly, to give time to the other side to catch behind the overheated one. The overheated side of the cigar will cool down sometimes the methods of maintaining a cuban cigar fresh dont are the best, and the other one will continue to burn slowly until it gets at the same level. However, if you still have this problem you will have to let your cigar down. It will cool down and after this thing will happen you must cut the end of it and start smoking once again.
Tunneling bad burn usually appears at the cigars that stay too long on a side. They are not smoked properly, which leads to the combustion of the core of cigar. The binder leaf will burn slower than the filler. The tunneling can be noticed due to the lack of smoke and the ash will not appear on the foot of the cigar. You can stop this issue by fixing the burn with the help of a lighter and by starting to smoke again, but this time much faster. You can also let it to cool down and afterwards to cut the end and start smoking again, all depends about the type of cuban cigar.
Coning bad burn appears at the cigars that burn too fast or better said are smoked too fast. The coning is quite different of the tunneling. In this case, the filler will remain almost intact while the wrapper will start burning very fast. Once you identify that you have this issue you must immediately let the cigar to cool down. After it is cooled you can retake your smoke, but this time make it slower.

Hi, thanks for having a look at my blog. I'm Monique. I was born in the south of France where the great Dutch artist Van Gogh painted those famous sunflowers, so perhaps that was why I grew up wanting to be an artist.
After I qualified as a graphic designer one of my first commissions was to design packaging for one of the large cigars importers. When I was finished they not only offered me a job in their Geneva office as a full-time designer but as a bonus for my good work several gift-wrapped packets of their best cigars.
My initial thought was these would make lovely gifts for my male friends and relatives. Till one of my friends asked – aren’t you even going to try one?
Well to be honest at that time it was pretty unusual for women to be seen smoking cigars. But actually, I found out that a growing number of women are starting to enjoy this luxury just as much as men. At first of I was the only one of my crowd but as I pointed out the days when the men retired to smoke cigars after dinners are fortunately long gone.
Before long a few of my woman friends began to enjoy them too. And soon I had a reputation as a bit of a cigar expert. Both male and female friends and colleagues would often ask me for advice on what they would enjoy or which cigars they should buy as a present for friends. As I love sharing this knowledge so much I hit upon the idea of writing my own blog about the many different aspects of choosing and enjoying cigars. I find the feedback and comments from readers make it very rewarding.
I hope that you enjoy reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
All the best,
