View Full Version : Cigar Notes

11-10-2003, 20:56
I figure as a new cigar enthusiast that I would benefit form taking notes as I enjoy a herf, much like I do when drinking new bourbons (and to post here as well). I was just wondering WHAT should I be looking at in a cigar (equivalent to color, nose, taste, mouthfeel, finish in bourbon). Knowing what to look for should help me decide if I like it or not, and to pass my thougts on to you.

Thanx for the help.

You will see a lot of the same flavors that can show up in Bourbon plus others .....vanilla, spices of all kinds, cedar, coffee, cream, pepper, leather, woody, etc. Be sure and make note of the wrapper's color, texture, and general appearance (ie smooth and oily or rough and veiny). Make a note of the burn....even with a nice white ash or irregular. Finally, categorize it as mild, mediem or full bodied. Look forward to your reviews.
