Good day! I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I did a lot of searching around the site and could not find a dedicated thread to the below questions so I wanted to invite the conversation around the topic of purging while smoking cigars. In case anyone does not know, based on my understanding, purging refers to the act of blowing through your cigar for a brief period of time. It is said to remove any impurities or bad flavours the cigar may have picked up while lighting or smoking. I was talking to a friend the other day and he mentioned that purging is very important to the cigar smoking process and that he does it after lighting as well as a few times while smoking the cigar but more specifically when ashing. So far, I've tried it a few times and I find it does make a pretty big difference when compared to not doing it. However, based on very limited knowledge, I also feel like the cigar does not evolve the same way it does when you do not purge. The question is present to every one is.... do you or do you not purge? If so - why, when and how often? If you do not, how come? As I am still relatively new to cigar smoking, I would love to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions on the topic if you care to share!
