Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Ernest Hemingway, Jul/Aug 99
(continued from page 5)
I like to consider myself a "serious" cigar smoker. Not because I have been smoking a long time, about five years, nor because I smoke a lot, about once a week. I am serious about cigars because, when I light up--and I do know which end to light--I am lighting a quality cigar, even though it's not a Cuban.
How do I know this? Simple research. Be it word of mouth from a friend, or better yet, the Tasting section in Cigar Aficionado. This allows me to decide what to try. If I like it, I'll keep buying it. If it doesn't work for me, then I discard it and move on. Without this section, I would be out there wasting good money on bad smokes until I found the better ones.
