Tasting A Cigar, Part One
There are many different components that culminate when tasting a cigar.
To start, we will take a look at the different plant tastes that can be detected when smoking a cigar.
Grass, Hay and Moss – Milder cigars often can have a grass flavor, especially those in Connecticut Shade Wrappers. Hay can also be detected at times. It is similar to a grassy flavor with a barnyard component. Sometimes, the milder cigars have a mossy flavor, which is a combination of an earthy taste and grassy flavor.
Tea – Heavily aged cigars often have a tea flavor.
Tobacco – While this may seem obvious, “Tobacco” is often used to describe a flavor in the stronger cigars.
Vegetal – This flavor is likened to flavors that resemble “green plants”.
In an upcoming post, we will be exploring the “woodsy” flavors often associated with cigar tastes.
