5 steps to your first smoke.
1.) Visit a local tobacconist store -
Learn from the expert and stay away from stores that don't specialize in cigars.
2.) Try a couple different cigars -
Open your mind and palate and try several different types of cigars to determine your preference.
3) Lighting instrument -
Wood matches and torch lights are best. PLEASE stay away from cardboard matches, they will ruin your smoke.
4.) Cutter -
Since this post is for newbies, have the store cut yur cigars or invest $2 bucks in a plastic cutter at the cash register!
5.) Drink Pairing -
This will vary widely until you determine your cigar preference. I recommend a nice scotch or brew. Keep in mind, your tobacconist is a good resource for pairing recommendations.
