Ok, please go easy cause I am new to cigar smoking. At the recommendation of a fellow brother I starting following cigar manufacturers on twitter. I saw something I never heard of before called a cigar tasting. now I would just assume and I could be wrong they just would give out a free stick to everyone and that is the tasting would they? then I started imagining that they cut a stick into pieces and that's how you would do it, but then I thought that may effect the taste. I am sure I am over thinking it, but please fill me in. Thanks.
