I am still learning this also, but I was under the impression that the reason for "blowing out" was to expell any harshness in the first smoke from lighting, not to see how well it was lit...am I wrong, please correct if I amzandor said:Wow. Lighting w/o drawing really works! I'd never heard of that before I started looking around this board. My cigars have been starting out smoother ever since.
I find blowing on the cigar to work better than blowing out to see how well it's lit though.
Exactly. I have to hide when I'm lighting in a shop because some men feel that they have to light lady's smokes. I really hate that but, don't want to be rude either.iminaquagmire said:I also like how people offer help in lighting cigars when you go to do it yourself. If they knew the intricasies(sp?) involved they probably wouldn't do that.
