In episode 14 of the Cigar Sense Podcast we deep-dive with Claudio Sgroi, master blender and president at Mombacho Cigars, into the defects caused by what could go wrong during the premium cigar production.  Together with Claudio, we review the key processes of the premium cigar production to identify critical risks of defects which, when it comes to enjoying our cigars, translate into loss in flavor or off-flavors.

Off-flavors, differently from those flavors that we simply do not like, are those perceptions that are connected to undesirable compounds, substances that end up in the tobacco or in our cigar, but are not meant to.
