I've snorked only irregularly, but the tie between smell and taste is clearer to me now.

Forgive my newbness, but in regards to exhaling through the nose, that obviously requires inhaling. I always thought cigars were just meant to be puffed in the mouth and back out? I have accidently inhaled a bit and almost died. Do you inhale just like smoking a cig/joint?

The video here gives you a pretty clear rundown of snorking/retrohaling. No smoke actually enters your lungs, only passes through your sinuses. Try this with your next smoke:

1. Take a normal draw off the cigar.
2. Start to exhale out the smoke as you would normally
3. When there's just a little bit of smoke left to exhale close your mouth and finish exhaling through your nose. The smoke will have nowhere else to go but out through your sinuses.

Notice you never once inhaled any of the smoke into your lungs, only forced it out through your nasal passages. I smoked cigs for years before having my first cigar and even then there's no way I can/could inhale a draw from a cigar.

It's important to remember to only retrohale a small amount of smoke out when you're first learning this technique, otherwise you're gonna have an unpleasant experience. Also, don't overdo it with the retrohales. When I was first starting out with cigars I would retro almost every draw. While this made for a very flavorful first 1/3, my sinuses would be fried by the 1/2 way point and the stick would become pretty bland or one-dimensional.

I always wondered why I enjoyed the last little bit of the cigar the most. After reading this post I realized it is because it simultaneously stings the nostrils at that stage. Now I understand how to enjoy the rest of the cigar just as much with the slight nose exhale (for lack of a better term). Thank you!

Well hopefully it doesn't sting too much, retrohaling or snorking smoke and having it sting and make my eyes water is not that enjoyable to me. Of course I have a huge effing Jew nose so....
