- Chi-kah-go (not Chi-caw-go)
I think he's probably smoked enough cigars to know that there is no need for extended foreplay or voodoo or $300 lighters. Put fire on end, puff, smoke. I used to believe that the extended toasting and everything was "keeping the cigar cool" and "making it taste better" but c'mon…it's all just pretense. I light mine as quick as I can, as little exposure to the flame as possible, gets a perfect burn and zero difference in taste that any other way I've ever tried.I've seen the way Shanken lights a cigar on his interview with Jordan, his opinion is no longer valid to me. I actually enjoy Halfwheels reviews quite a bit.
