Cigar Service

Magnums Academy 1 hour and 41 minutes

The appreciation of fine cigars, like the appreciation of wines, is a unique form of art. First, the definition of a fine cigar: a fine cigar is handmade using only 100% tobacco. Nothing matches the centuries-old culture of cultivating cigar tobacco or the massive amount of time the tobacco farmer and cigar maker puts into creating a fine cigar. Very few things in the world are known almost without question to be the best of their kind. At the heart of a good cigar is the tobacco and its taste.

In this course, you will learn everything you need to know about cigars. Magnums Academy instructor Josephine Ive will share her passion for cigars and will take you through a brief history of cigars, tobacco plantations, the various regions and different shapes and sizes.

Josephine will also discuss how to serve a cigar, how to present it, what to serve it with, the importance of cutting the cigar properly and how to light it up, and the necessary conditions for storing cigars.

Magnums Academy has also kindly provided a glossary of the most critical key terms so that you can communicate effectively with cigar shops, your guest cigar smoker and other cigar smokers.

Lastly, an assessment with a pass mark of 80% will follow to ensure complete understanding and competence.
