All references to “mild” is only a descriptor of flavor. No cigar should be considered to present a reduced risk of harm compared to other cigars. Take the advice of Al Remp from Thompson Cigar when it comes to smoking a cigar. Mr. Remp has been in the cigar industry for 50 years, and in that time he has tasted thousands of cigars. So if you want to know how to properly light and puff on a cigar, watch Mr. Remp here.
