an puff across to take the edges off and make a round end after a few minutes and its all good
grab a glass of your favourite liquor ( i'm a cognac or scotch fan ) enjoy!
Oh yeah, I've heard that plus other theories of getting that perfect light....or how not to ruin a fine cigar!
And the spirits, that is another whole additional level of the Aficionados, all the different ways to enjoy a cigar. Single malts, cognac, scotch, the country club stuff or I like a good Canadian Blend over a few rocks.
(Don't tell anyone but I also enjoy Diet Coke with a ton of ice too.)
