Walt White teaches smokers how to handle cigars that aren't burning properly

Cigars are a wonderful thing. They have the ability to lift your spirits when you’re down, ease the tension when you are stressed, and bring people together. Still, with all of their positive traits, sometimes they can be a source of stress.

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor Magazine has published a new article by contributor and Stogie Review co-founder Walt White, entitled "Burning Issues: Tunneling, Canoeing, and Runners." The article was written as a beginner's guide, in which White investigates these three most-common cigar burn issues, explaining the causes and solutions for each.

At its core, White argues, cigar smoking is about relaxation. "Cigars are a wonderful thing. They have the ability to lift your spirits when you’re down, ease the tension when you are stressed, and bring people together," he writes. White continues, "Still, with all of their positive traits, sometimes they can be a source of stress."

White explains tunneling as when the "the inner fillers are burning at a faster rate than the surrounding tobaccos and causing problems. This particular issue typically happens as a result of one of two things," he explains, those being manufacturing issues or smoking too slowly.

He next covers canoeing, which "can be caused by a soft spot in the filler. Unlike the tunnel, which happens towards the middle of the bunch, the canoe can occur due to a soft spot on the outer edge of the bunch. The result is a large hollow dish burned out of the side of your cigar, which as the name implies, looks like a hollowed out canoe."

Finally, White discusses runners, which he conjectures are "caused by small veins within the leaf, which can act like a fuse by creating a path for the burn line to follow rapidly."
