When Should You Tap A Cigar’s Ash?

When should you tap a cigar’s ash? This question has been asked for as long as there have been cigars. Some aficionados let the ash go for almost the length of the cigar. While this is an impressive feat, it could create some issues. At any time, the ash can break off and ruin your clothes or even fall into your food or drink. Either way it could get messy. 

Also, while the ash helps to cool the ember, too long an ash will tend to affect the cigar’s flavor profile and make it seem harsh. So, when’s the best time to tap that ash? Most cigar experts recommend that once the ash hits the one inch mark it’s time to knock it off. In an ashtray of course!
