The Top 6 Mistakes Cigar Smokers Make

1.  Smoking Too Damn Fast!

 

Where's the fire pal? Well it's frickin' raging at the tip of your cigar when you smoke it too fast. Ya, I know it tastes good, but you're gonna ruin that goodness by giving it the Lewinsky treatment.

Tobacco Plant Nutrition…Growing a Bitchin Crop - Parta Cenco !

Beyond nutritional needs, tobacco is sensitive to acidity, expressed as "pH," an indication of the percentage of hydrogen detected.

 

High Acid soils damage the tobacco's roots, causing root rot and black root rot. That’s real bad Root Rot ! The common remedy for acidic soils is the application of lime (calcium carbonate). Rainy climates tend to be acidic, because the water washes away the calcium-bearing carbonate.…

Tobacco Plant Nutrition…Growing a Bitchin Crop - Parta Tres

Calcium is important, dah…Momma told us that all our growing up. Because depressed calcium levels stunt the growing tips of the leaves, and roots don't develop satisfactorily...And the Bones will not develop Big and Strong ! Calcium is important for the cell membranes' (cell walls') it make them smart, health, and with integrity ... literally holding the cell together. Without this, the plant cannot grow.

Tobacco Plant Nutrition…Growing a Bitchin Crop - Parta Quattro

Manganese is another important element. In conjunction with magnesium, it aids in the formation of chlorophyll. It is a catalyst, stimulating the oxidation of plant tobacco's enzymes, creating enzymatic changes in the ongoing process of plant metabolism. We all know how important it is to have great metabolism…it makes our bodies absorb what we put in it !!! Even in relatively minute concentrations, Macanese is important in helping the plant to absorb and use the calcium,…

5 DRINK PARINGS YOU'VE (POSSIBLY) NEVER HEARD OF

Coffee. Scotch. Rum. Beer. Fine cigar smokers are as particular about their drink parings as they are about the stick they're smoking. The art of cigar appreciation is a dance of nuance and subtlety. Anything influencing the palate will also enhance or contaminate your puffing experience.

Tobacco Plant Nutrition…Growing a Bitchin Crop - Parta Dos

Ever wonder why some tobaccos kick you in the neuts and some don’t?

 

In tobacco leaves, the proper amount, distribution, and balance of the various nitrogenous compounds is essential for satisfactory color, good grading, and other desirable qualities of a good cigars tobacco. Too much nitrogen causes tobacco leaves to be dark…not good! Too little produces a harsh-smoking, poorly colored leaves..not good!. Here’s a snag of important…

Tobacco Plant Nutrition…Growing a Bitchin Crop - Parta Uno

Ever wonder what gives tobacco it’s distinct and different flavor? I did, and that’s why I jotted down this little diddy on the subject. Looking across a field of harvest ready tobacco…at first glance you become mesmerized by the emerald green flow of smoky goodness, leaves swaying back and forth and then staring back at you saying…”Pick Me…Pick Me. You're gonna want to roll me next!" While all seems tranquil…inside the plants themselves there is a complex and rapid activity…
