QUICK TIP: Occasionally you will run into a cigar that has a cracked wrapper. Maybe the wrapper cracked when you cut your cigar or maybe the cigar already had a cracked wrapper, either way this can adversely effect the performance of your cigar. Imagine trying to drink through a straw that had a hole in it. That hole would ruin the vacuum and therefore make the straw difficult to use. A cigar is the same way, if the wrapper is cracked it might be hard to to draw through it. One way to overcome a cracked wrapper is to carefully slide the cigar band over the cracked area of the cigar which can seal the crack just enough to save your smoking session.
