The Age Of Cigars

Human beings come into this world fresh and new, only to leave this material world old and exhausted. With all the uncertainties that are part and parcel of this life, one thing is for sure; everything will grow old. Cigars also are subject to this aging process. This aging of cigars is a very significant factor since it affects the cigar's overall flavour and taste. Whether you smoke a newly made cigar or one with a few wrinkles, both experiences are likely to be different. More often than not, it has been observed that the cigars with some years behind them are bound to be exceptional smokes. However, tobacco cigars also do reach their peaks and tend to turn bad after some time. In a perfectly developed world, one of the ways to discover the age of a tobacco cigar would be to simply ask for an ID, and waiting patiently as the cigar digs around in its place or wallet. However, in actual practice, the signs of an older cigar include slight shrinkages, the flexibility of the cigar rings to move up and down the length of the cigar without allowing for much friction, and the presence of a light grey powder, also known as, plume.

Cigars have to be smoked within a few weeks of them being rolled if you wish to get a new or freshly rolled type of flavour and taste. But, in general, experts are of the opinion that most cigars embody a better taste after a year of their manufacturing. A two-year-old cigar is usually the best one to smoke if you are going for light smokes. This is the peak time when these cigars and their flavours are at their best. Between two years and five years, most of the tobacco cigars peak to taste their best. The stronger bodied cigars, for instance, are thought to generally age better over a much greater duration of time, and they peak during their toddler years.

However, between 7 and 10 years, most of the tobacco cigars get set in their own ways. In other words, they mellow out. For most people this is equated with having too little taste and flavour while smoking.

Cigars too have their own golden years; while some cigars are done after a period of ten years, there are others who stand to survive the test of time. Some cigars simply grow old in a very graceful manner; and, they are termed the "Dick Clarks" of tobacco. The age of a tobacco cigar is a very important factor when a person is lighting up a cigar to enjoy a few joyful moments. But, like so many other things, age is not always a determining factor. Some cigars may be thought of as well past their prime age, but may still offer a unique and enjoyable taste and flavour. The age of a cigar can only be just a guideline since it all really comes down to individual preferences, opinions and tastes.

Single Action Cigar Lighters

High-quality cigar lighters such as Lotus lighters oftentimes come with many convenient additions. Many are equipped with cigar cutters and other tools.

Double and triple jets provide reliable lighting under any conditions. These lighters come in another form that makes them even easier to use. If one is tired of having to flip their lid every time they light up a cigar, a single action lighter may be the answer. These are among the most convenient of lighters.

Many lighters have a lid of one sort or another built into them to protect the components. Most often, the lid is flipped open and the lighter is lit. In a single action lighter with a lid, one need only push the button. The entire lighting process, from sliding back the lid to starting the flow of gas to producing the spark is done with one press of the button. This can be quite an advantage.

These devices are very well-suited to those who have trouble performing fine tasks with their hands. They are also excellent for those who just happen to enjoy a bit of flash in their lighter. Most often, these lighters have slide-open type lids, though some of them have standard flip-open lids. These actions are not common on fluid-filled lighters due to the ignition mechanism.

These actions are a nice compliment to the multi-tool devices oftentimes used to light cigars. In most cases, these lighters have a cutter attached. While the cutter will have to be operated manually, an auto-opening lighter is quite an elegant touch to anyone's smoking routine. These lighters are available in double and triple flame models, which makes them even more technically interesting. The name-brand lighters are of a very high-quality. Users can count on years of reliable service out of such a device.

Single action lighters can usually be opened manually should the user prefer. Having the option is nice, however, especially if one has their hands full when they're trying to light a cigar. These lighters are made of high-quality components so users should not take the complexity as presenting an increased risk of the lighter breaking. These devices are also available in a wide variety of case styles that should suit any user's preferences in that regard. Most high-quality lighter stores will have several of these models available to their customers.

How can I tell if my Yellow Cab cigar sign is old or a reproduction?

I have a yellow cab cigar sign. It is heavy and seems to be Porcelain. It has minor chipping along the edges but is in pretty good shape. I know they made reproductions of this sign and they were also made of Porcelain. How do I tell if I have an original or a reproduction?

Thank You

wrong category.

I would check with a collector or go to a collector show and have it appraised.
