Aroma of a cigar

news54The aroma of the cigar is usually the lesser recognizable contribution to the smoker’s taste experience. The main taste experience is delivered by the flavors on the smoker’s taste buds. The way a cigar smells is better known to the people around the smoker, rather than by the smoker himself.

So yesterday when a good friend lit up a great tasting cigar I purposely resisted the urge to light up, too. I took the chance to let only my nose accompany the cigar. It was well worth the effort, as I was rewarded with plenty of the wonderful aroma of a great tasting cigar. Passive smoking, once in a while.
