Learning Your Way Around a Cigar Shop

Before I lit up this delicious smoke with I used a punch cut on this bad boy. I’ve said this before and will say this again, punch cuts allow the most outpour of smoke. So, for my first time experiencing smoke, I try my best to do a punch cut.

Once I punch cut the Heritage, I did my cold draw test and immediately detected one single rich note of dried fruit; specifically raisins. I’ll chalk up the dried fruit flavor note to the Nicaraguan tobaccos that make up the binder and filler.

By the look of the smoke at face value, I assumed I’d be tasting an abundance of chocolate and wood to go alongside the raisin note. So, I was excited to light this up and see what I would be tasting.
