Toasting the Foot ?
Got a question. Why toast the foot? Am I right in assuming the first 3/16 of the foot is dry compaired to the rest of the cigar and toasting ignites that dry tobacco without pulling the harsher smoke through and affecting taste. Does toasting ignite the tobacco so when you remove the fire ( match or lighter) you don't pull the fumes from the fire through and affect the taste? Intrested in learning why we toast the foot and how does it affect the taste.
The Native Peoples of the Americas gave tobacco to the world.
