Pre-smoke?

I've seen a few people mention pre-smoke. What exactly is this? Is it the general gnawing on the cigar before lighting up?

it just refers to the time you have with a cigar before you are smoking it. could mean you are sucking on it like a loli or could be your just sniffing it like a perv in a lingerie shop.

Think of it as cigar foreplay

It is the natural flavor of the wrapper on your lips, and all of the above.

Our former President Bill Clinton would be the one to ask that question to. Monica may have some insight as well.

The pre-smoke is the key to me.
I clip the end and softly puff the cigar unlit. This can take from 10 to 30 seconds.I try to pre-identify the taste of the cigar.
The fun begins when you light the cigar- how close does the smoke flavor match the pre-smoke flavor, and does the flavor stay the same throughout the lenght of the cigar.
The Padron 3000 stays the same throughout- very good, but not complex. My opinion this is the best priced cigar available.
The Diploma starts very good and changes- complex- very,very good.
These are just two examples.

On that note, I'm pre smoking a flor de olivia torpedo. The wrapper is so nice and oily it is like applying chapstick to my lips! I'm playing golf in 15 and I have 5 cigars on hand. What a day.

Naw it was back home. I work at Tunxis Plantation Country Club during the summers. Free golf, free carts, free range balls all the time. Needless to say, I've been playing alot these past few years.

I definately spend some time w/my cigars before lighting. Smell, taste, touch. I try to pick up on some aromas or guess what the cigar will taste like from it, but it never really tastes how it smells. I can vaguely pick up on some aromas, from say Padrons, Fuente or the Cien Anos's, but it's pretty subtle. So I guess I do have a pre-smoke routine...
