    These are well worth lighting up. As I've let mine rest, they've just gotten better and better.

    I'll have to do an empirical study on the ash consistency of these sticks as I work my way through mine. LOL

    That just gives you a reason to light up another one so that you can try for the super long ash!

    Does a better cigar ash last longer then a lesser cigar?

    a longer ash means a more dense pack of tobacco, as well as a better roll. this is an arturo fuente short story maduro, IMO it is about a medium body smoke.

    Great thanks for the information. I have smoked cigars for a while but never knew what i was smoking and now I am getting into it to learn all I can and start a collection.

    The Short Story maduro is kind of hard to find - they only produce them once in a while, and in fairly limited numbers.

    The "regular" Short Story - natural wrapper - is pretty easy to find, mild-medium smoke, and very tasty. Well worth a try - very complex for a short smoke.

    My personal tradition is to light them with only one standard match - a paper match or a small wooden one like cigar retailers often give away in boxes.

    While construction and density indeed play a large role in ash, so does smoking pace; moreso actually. The faster (harder) you smoke a cigar the less air space is left inside the burned tobacco (ash) and therefore the more tenaciously it holds together.

    I tend to smoke very slowly and so I rarely see an ash of more than a couple inches. Just because an ash plops off unpredictably, isn't necessarily a sign of poor construction.
