Little else will ruin the experience of smoking a great cigar more, than a cigar with a very tight draw. Cigar Advisor Executive Editor Gary Korb notes that a tight draw is usually the result of poor rolling. His research also pointed to, who wrote, “The manner, or technique, in which the cigar is rolled and the placement of the filler leaves determine how loose or tight a cigar will draw."

Gary empathizes with readers who have been in this position: “You're about to light up that cigar you've been looking forward to all day, when you realize that the draw sucks; or to put it another way, doesn't suck. There's nothing more frustrating than a cigar that won't ‘pull.’” Though tightly-rolled or plugged cigars are more often the exception than the rule, many cigar smokers can relate to a cigar that was too tight to enjoy. In some cases it can be just one, a few, or all of the cigars in the box or bundle.

Additionally, Korb advises, a plugged or tightly-rolled cigar will smoke too hot, which also prevents the flavors and aroma from developing properly. “Fortunately,” he writes, “not all is lost. There are several solutions for freeing-up the airflow in most plugged cigars.” His article describes how to fix cigars with these symptoms.
