Cigar smoking and vaping can be considered two of the tastiest habits one could have. Recently, on the vape market, there are many Cuban cigar flavors that appeared and they guarantee the same taste like a premium stogie. The main question is whether or not the taste is the same. As a fact, cigars and e-cigars are very different, even though both are delicious and we listed some of the main facts about them in order to better understand both of these delights.

1. Cigar smoking and vaping

Cigars are made from tobacco leaves but in comparison with the cigarettes, their smoke is not to be inhaled. The smoke of the cigars should be kept on your palate in order to feel the taste and aroma of the cigar. Inhaling the smoke of the cigar can be very unpleasant because it can be very heavy and irritative. This is why learning how to properly smoke a cigar can take some time.

On the other hand, vaping is for inhaling. Vape juice contains nicotine and this whole industry comes as a substitute for regular smoking. It is considered by many a good alternative to regular smoking and it is actually allowed in many public places.

The e-cigar, the device that produces the vapors, needs batteries and electric power in order to make the vapors. The device itself is not very complicated but it requires some maintenance over time. The device can be set to different temperatures and based on that, the density of the smoke will also differ.

E-cigars come in all sizes and shapes and they can be smoked in many public places while the cigars are not allowed in most of the areas.

2. The taste of cigars and vape

Both the cigars are e-cigars are renowned for their great taste. The cigars have a very long history and the brands that produce them have secret blends that they have been using for generations in order to make the best possible cigars. The cigars can be divided roughly in light, mid-range, like Hoyo de Monterrey Double Coronas and full-bodied based on their strength. This characteristic is very important for the taste and this is why there are some companies that focus on one particular type. Of course, there are also strengths in between these three main types. These are light to medium-bodied cigars or medium to full-bodied represented by Cohiba Secretos Maduro 5.

The e-cigars focus on the type of vape juice for the taste. Depending on the personal taste, you can choose from classic tobacco, which is also one of the first tastes to ever come on the market, or you can go for fruity combos. The flavor range is very diverse and you can choose from thousands of combinations and possibilities.

These flavors are mainly artificial and this is why many convinced cigar smokers say that they don’t necessarily fancy the vapers.

3. The experience of the cigar and the vape

By experience, we refer to the smoking process. The cigars are not for daily use unless you are a great fan and smoker. They are for relaxation and delightful moment. The cigar smoker usually finds a nice atmosphere to smoke a cigar and fully enjoys the moment. Also, remember that cigars are not to be inhaled and they are not additive in any way.

Vape smokers usually use it as an alternative to regular smoking because it also contains nicotine. Being allowed in many places, e-cigars can be used on a daily bases and to supply the smoker with nicotine.

Of course, there are some vape smokers that don’t use nicotine juices and they just use this device for the taste. The diversity of tastes allows the smoker to switch in between juices and to not settle for one. The cigar smokers, on the other hand, try numerous cigars until they find their favorite one. Once this thing happens, they settle to a very small range of cigars that they will consume regularly.

Both cigars and vapers are delicious and they can be easily enjoyed. The differences above are meant to show you the main differences in order to guide you to your next delight.
