Default What line do you use to discribe a BAD CIGAR?

Every now and again someone give me a stick, if it bad, and they ask later how was that _______, I gifted you?

When I will never buy another one, I try & be polite. I say, "it was intresting".

I am not expert, and I know there are brands, and blends I hate. That other love.

It all boils down to smoke with you personally love, price is just price.

Just remember it’s the thought that counts. When someone gifts me something i know I’m not going to smoke I’m very gracious for the thought, and that’s true, if they ask me why I’m not smoking it I’ll usually say I’m going to save it and smoke it when i have time to really enjoy it.

While it is the thought that counts, I will not accept something that I know I will not smoke. I simply thank them for the offer and tell them to give it to someone who will appreciate it.

Usually I'll just smile thoughtfully and tell them it brought to mind the flavor profile of an aged Cremosa or Hacienda Rio. And I sincerely thank them regardless of whether it was good or bad.

Of course, if it's a good friend I may be a bit more direct in my analysis.

Its like what my favorite, can name one, but their sure are the ones I would smoke more of. Back in the 1950's, and 1960's there was no were the number of Cigar brands for sale as today. Most common Cigars were White Owls, El Productos, and Dutch Masters.

Today between the big names there are hundreds of Boutique brands. Some are only found online, or have limited distribution because they Boutique brand just have limited distribution.

Like I told someone this past weekend like what you smoke, smoke with you like, keep trying new thing, you might find a new love.

If someone offer me a stick I will take it, and try it. Why because I might find something I love.

Cigar shop near my home, Everytime I go over to buy some stick give me one of their "house blends", have never had one I would not buy.

All their house blend are made by big name companies for them, they all great so far, and the bet part is their $3.50-$5.00 a stick.

Hence the reason I said "if I KNOW I will not smoke it, I won't accept it". Will never smoke another Connecticut wrapped cigar...end of story. No need in "wasting" a stick that I know I will not enjoy. I've been gifted a ton of cigars and enjoyed most of them.

Default Re: What line do you use to discribe a BAD CIGAR?

I’m in the grateful for gift crowd and then stuck with sticks I will smoke eventually unless they are flavored then a I will accept but they are for the wife when she annually smokes a cigar with me. I will explain that I’m grateful but my palate generally enjoys such and such types however my wife will like this.

If I’m smoking a series of cigars in one setting, after two it almost doesn’t matter what I smoke as I can’t taste anything and actually I start preferring mild cigars so I don’t get a nicotine hangover.

Gifted cigars seem to range the gambits from flavored to popular Dominicans which are nice but not really in my wheel house, e.g. a brother-in-law just gifted me two Cohiba Red Dots and I will smoke them eventually but I gifted back two CC’s and now he and his buddies want to get more hah. I think he was a little annoyed I didn’t fire up the Cohiba Red Dot right away but I was mid H Upmann Anejado so nuff said.
