CIGAR EDUCATION - V CUT
👩🏾🏫 Also, referred to as a cats eye (rounded on the ends as opposed to pointed) and wedge cut (sharp pointed ends), the v-cut with its v-shaped blade makes a wedge cut into the cap of the cigar. Used properly a v-cutter allows incredible draw from cigars and minimizes loose tobacco bits inside the mouth while smoking. Used incorrectly a wedge cut can slice past the cap of a cigar causing it to unravel or cut so deep that the draw of the cigar can cause it to "smoke hot" (burning too fast and, or puffing/drawing on the cigar too often and too hard). If you choose to use a v-cut, always be swift and decisive.

Like smoking a combination of a semi-sweet chocolate almond candy bar and a Fudge Round snack cake infused with black pepper, honey, and mild floral notes, this cigar always opens up with black peppercorns, coffee and cocoa while ushering in cedar and earth flavors. Black pepper and dark chocolate are carried over into the second third and are now joined with creaminess, earth, meaty mushrooms (think portobello), espresso, raisins, and molasses. As this smoke came to an end caramel, dark chocolate covered raisins, earth, and mild black pepper undertones finish off the last third. Overall this cigar consistently has a balance of flavor and I always keep a few in my humidor. And don't forget I'm giving one away in my bEARTHday #14DayCigarGiveawayF that ends at midnight EST!!
