Damaged cigars - repairable?

By Richard on August, 28th 2008 - 11:55 am

I often get asked about damaged cigars and how damaged one must be before it effects the smoke of the cigar. You would be incredibly surprised at the resistance and construction of these Cuban hand rolled cigars. As the wrapper is purely for decorative purposes, the binder is the leaf that actually holds the cigar together, surface damage will not have any effect on the cigars' smoke. Cigars like the one shown above right, simply need a dab of odorless vegetable gum or glue to re-stick the loosened leaf. Remember, this is exactly how the cigar is constructed in the first place! Do not be afraid to get closer with your smokes. Touch them, clean them, move them in the humidor and take care of them when slight damage occurs. You will find odorless (remember your cigar is like a sponge, it will absorb any odors around it) vegetable gum or glues at most tobacconists or on-line.

first off, thank you for allowing me to join your wonderful site. I just started my passion for cigars only a few months ago and soaking up everything I can. I happened to be at a play in studio city , California and seen a gentlemen with a cigar. I asked, what he was smoking, said "partagas" from cuba, i said "huh, cuban?" he said , .

sorry about the side story, but your topic on damaged cigars is very interesting. Thanks for the tips, even though at this point, I still must visit shops for my smokes, and have not purchased a humidor myself. But sometimes I honestly do not believe that local cigar shops here , actually care about cigars to the point, they actually give them the proper amount of attention.
