Is it me or the Cigars?
I have a question but first I'll provide some info. 50 years old and smoked cigars for 31 and nothing but handmade premiums for 28. Although I smoke a lot of robust or full body cigars I tend to prefer mild to mid pre-noon and medium post noon. The past several years, I tend to pull a full body out at prime time (evenings after dinner). I do this not because I like them but because I want to like them ( stupid huh). Seems to me, the best quality of cigars recently is in the more robust or full body realm. Take for example the Olivia V, it is simply beutiful to look at and feel, but for me they are a little to robust. I have to be very careful in the first half or I will get dizzy smoking them. I can only nasal about 10% on the exhale but after about a 3rd of the cigar is done it always gets much better and I end up nasaling significantly more and enjoying the experiance much more. I find this true the vast majority of times regardless of the body of cigar, but I notice it more on full body smokes. The back half is always better than the front half. One thing I notice, starting a full body smoke is a little rough on the nasal passages but they wet up and I increase the exhale thru the sinuses on the back half. I ussualy have to blow my nose toward the end. So, my question is; Is it the cigars that change in mid stride or is it me (my senses)?
