Pro Tip: How To Relight A Cigar
Updated: Oct 22, 2020
So what happens when you light up one of your favorite ticks and get sidetracked? Maybe you start chatting with a friend or making new friends. Either way a good amount of time has passed. When you get back to your cigar it has burned out. There is a right and wrong way to relight your cigar so it tastes as good as it did prior to burning out.
Purge your cigar. Clean out all the ash from the burned out part of the cigar. I personally use a cigar draw that is in my case. You could also use the wooden stick of a match and ion a pinch a plastic fork. Either way clean out as much of the ash as you can.
Begin to relight your cigar. Be patient it will take more time than the first time you lit it up.
While keeping the flame on the cigar blow into the cigar instead of taking a draw. This will help to remove the toxins and bad stuff form inside the cigar. It will rid the stick of the harshness.
Enjoy your revived cigar.
