Cigar smokers have long enjoyed the full, rich, tobacco taste of a quality, hand rolled cigar. Cigars produce thick clouds of smoke, and large amounts of nicotine, in addition to a premium tobacco taste. One aspect of the vaping market seeks to appeal to this class of smokers via e-cigars.
While a true cigar enthusiast may be reluctant to be won over by e-cigars, they have many advantages compared to the real thing and should not be dismissed so quickly. Most non-cigar smokers find the smell of genuine cigars to be distasteful and unpleasant. Some e-cigars do have a noticeable odor, but it is much tamer than the real thing, and dissipates quickly.
Also, e-cigars do not burn, make actual smoke (it’s vapor!), or ash. Like their e-cig counterparts, switching could make a big difference in your health. Not developing smoking related diseases, or dying, may be attractive to new users who are interested in cigars, but reluctant to take up an unhealthy habit. Furthermore, e-cigars are welcome in some businesses that do not allow use of the genuine product, such as some casinos.
Vaping an e-cigar is very similar to how a tobacco cigar is smoked. Cigar smokers generally employ two methods: puffing into one’s mouth or inhaling partly or all the way into the lungs.
If one chooses to puff his/her e-cigar, the vapor may be held in the mouth to allow nicotine absorption and then exhaled through the mouth and/or nose. An e-cigar may also be inhaled wholly or partially into the lungs by taking a small draw into the mouth, and then inhaling. This method is referred to as Mouth To Lung (MTL) vaping.
The method of drawing on an e-cigar or e-cigarette can differ slightly in feel compared to tobacco cigars, or it can feel about the same. It’s really all up to the user. Most vapers easily adapt with just a bit of practice.
A variety of flavor experiences await the user of e-cigars. They are available in traditional flavors like Cuban or Havana, or other traditional, premiere tobacco flavors. Some are available in pipe tobacco flavors as well such as apple, cherry, or vanilla flavored tobacco. Furthermore, for those who wish for something different at times, desserts or fruits may excite your palate.
Some e-cigars have refillable cartridges, which opens an amazing assortment of flavors to the user.
The traditional cigar, pipe and cigarette flavors vary widely. For those looking to experiment, the world is your oyster. Currently, e-juice comes in nearly every flavor one can imagine: desserts, fruits, beverages, yogurt, waffles, candy. Aside from improving your health by not smoking traditional cigars, perhaps some of these flavors can may even become more appealing than the taste of burning plant matter.
Like a traditional cigar, e-cigars have some “give” to them to allow the user to bite down a bit, or even chew the end. Most light up at the tip using a LED to give the appearance of a burning cigar, and from a distance they appear to be genuine. If you are looking to keep the form factor, e-cigars are a godsend!
