Choose a cigar based on your personal preference
When someone describes the body of a cigar to you, they are not talking about the shape or length. The body relates to how powerful and strong your smoke is.
No one can tell you what type of cigar you like to smoke, it's your preference, but experienced smokers usually want something complete, while beginners and newcomers in the cigar game often prefer cigars with a smoother body. Again, this is your choice.
While the size of your cigar can have an impact on your body or the taste of your cigar, an important factor in choosing your cigar size is how much time you have to enjoy your smoke.
Choose cigars based on quality
Judge the cigar by its cover- The packaging must be free from cracks or tears and must not be torn. You want a smooth, clean exterior, which means high-quality workmanship.
Cigars must be uniform in color- You shouldn't see or have spots that feel darker than the rest. There should be no mold stains (after all, stored in a humid environment). You want a nice uniform color throughout the cigar.
