Let me be the first to make one thing clear. I know absolutely nothing about cigars, the only ones I've ever had were when I'd just started smoking about 10 years ago, and the occasional one passed around at a party... Asking me which ones they were is a moot question as I simply didn't pay attention to the label on the cylinders...
So, my question is, to get an accurate appreciation of cigars and cigarillos, where does one begin? Is there a particular brand I should be finding or a particular blend? What are the main differences in each blend or brand? What should I be looking for when sampling a cigar?
And the age old question I've never had answered properly, does one pull the smoke all the way into his lungs, or halfway down, or just kept in the mouth?
I'm sure if I had some sort of guidance, my overall experience of cigar smoking would be greatly improved.
