Premiere Cigar Magazine Debuts Free Online Resource to Cigar Smokers

Cigar Flavor Wheel from Cigar Advisor

Cigar Advisor Magazine Releases Cigar Flavor Wheel as a Free Online Tool

​​​Cigar Advisor, the nation's premiere online cigar magazine, proudly serves cigar enthusiasts with a uniquely down-to-earth perspective on the enjoyment of premium cigars. The magazine has released a Cigar Flavor Wheel as a free resource to all cigar enthusiasts.

A flavor wheel serves primarily to help cigar smokers comprehend the flavors and aromas of their cigars. It also provides a common language for fellow smokers, regardless of their experience level, to use and be able to discuss the sensations and tastes they detect in their cigars. Flavor wheels are commonly used for tasting wine, bourbon, scotch, and coffee, as well – and this Cigar Advisor release fills a need for cigar smokers looking to knowingly identify, share and discuss simple and complex flavor components. “It’s created in of the spirit of sharing knowledge with fellow cigar lovers,” says John Pullo, Managing Editor of Cigar Advisor.

How a Cigar Flavor Wheel Works

Using this powerful tool will allow cigar smokers to think about their cigars, and how they appeal to the senses, a little differently. First, look at the inner groupings of Animal, Spices, Plant, and Other flavors. If your cigar tastes spicy, you can use the wheel to narrow the kind of flavor down to Sweet Spices, Dry Spices, Toasty, or Buttery. From there, a smoker will be able to derive and identify further specific notes and flavors that they may subjectively taste; overall, this flavor wheel features 176 specific tasting notes that range from general to very nuanced flavors.

“The first time I ever used a flavor wheel, it really helped me understand my cigar better”, says John Pullo, Managing Editor of Cigar Advisor. “This was our chance to pay it forward to other cigar enthusiasts, and help them do the same.”
