    I bought a Ghurka Cellar Reserve cigar and I'm confused about something pretty basic. There's a pigtail and a nub. I always thought you smoke if from the nub. I'm reading you smoke it from the pigtail. You can't smoke it from both ends.....this is where you come in....

    Thanks!

    Trick is w/ pig tail ends is not over cutting. You only need to clip the pigtail just a smidge up from where it joins the cigar leaving a small draw hole where the smoke can get through.

    Don't over cut as the leaf will completely unwind.


    Good luck.


    BTW: If you want a superb daily cigar. You might try the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso. One of the best all around consistent smoking cigars I have ever had. About $9-10/.

    And you draw from the pigtail end even if it has a nub on the other end correct?

    That will be the next cigar I buy!

    That cigar looks like you are cutting both ends. You clip the pigtail away and smoke from that end w/ the other end also getting a cut but normal larger cut-away is being applied which is your lighting end.

    There probably isn't a hole already in the nub right? It doesnt look that way from the images I am seeing. I have never had a cigar like this. If both ends are closed, then this is how it should be smoked.

    The nub end actually has a hole. You can see the tobacco. At first I thought there was paper covering it but there's not. Ill probably just call tomorrow and ask.

    Ok then you clip the pig-tail lighting that end and smoke from the nub side.

    Enjoy your smoke. :D

    Isn't it pretty much the rule-of-thumb that you smoke from the end where the band is?

    I'm no expert. That would make the most sense though

    If there's a pigtail and a nub, you just light it in the middle and then smoke from either end. Pretty sure that's right.
