    Very cool vid. Used to blow my buddies minds when I'd do that with a cigarette... No way in he!! I'd do it with a 60rg cigar though... Very impressive Josh!

    I love how he made Josh put the lit end of the cigar in his mouth. Alex's pallette is like gold. You can't risk it on such a dangerous experiment. I bet he gets Tim to pre-chew his tortilla chips for him too ;)

    that is a great explanation of a fundamental concept in blending and tasting.

    Good video! I havent smoked many coronas but I did just get some MOW PA's and will do some fine tuning and see what I like best.

    Watched it yesterday. It was great, I never really thought of that having an effect. Keep em coming Alex.

    To be honest I never considered the smoke velocity when smoking. I only factored, smaller rg, more influence the wrapper would have in the overall taste. Definately some more things for me to consider and experiment with. I would like to hear some thoughts on belicosos and chisels and how those tapered ends also affect the taste,,As in funneling more smoke into a concentrated output. I have also heard this is why guys use a punch vs cutters,, to created more of a focused effect???

    I use a punch because I always end up spitting out small bits of loose tobacco all the time I'm smoking one that I've used a cutter on. I find it annoying.

    I'll smoke those pointy-ended things but whenever possible I'll still use my punch.

    that is exactly why i used to punch everything. now i punch very little. the wider draw seems to have peaked my interest.

    my 10k post contest will probably include a punch.

    Perfect timing. I find myself prefering the corona vitola in some of the blends I wanted to re-visit. For example. I had an AF Gran Reserva Maduro in the Corona Imperial (on recommendation by a BOTL). Before I had the #50. As much as I loved the #50 the Corona is now my preference.

    Now it wasn't me but I've seen people do that with one of those special rolled herbal cigars. SHOTGUN !!!, Very interesting, nice video.

    Anyone else feel dirty as you watched the thick white smoke billow out of the bigger ring gauge?
