A quick little post about an issue that bugs me: as I smoke a good cigar I want to smoke it down to the last little bit. Often a good one will cost me a pretty penny and I want to enjoy it all. The problem becomes when you get down to the “nub” it’s hard to hold because it gets too hot as the center burns. So a little trick: toothpicks. Use a simple but sturdy toothpick to hold the cigar by poking it in the side near where the cap was (not too close to the end but not in the middle). Avoid going all the way through the cigar. Just puncture it enough to hold the cigar with it. This way you can get right down to the last little bit. Alternatively you could use tweezers to hold it with.
