In episode 18 of Cigar Sense Podcast, we propose you a sensory exercise that will help develop your palate. We’ll talk about how to differentiate aromas from tastes and tactile perceptions. This is an exercise you can very easily do at home, it’s a classic in sensory education.

You’ll also discover that there are some challenges when experimenting with a cigar. The aromas and tastes confusion among cigar lovers is very popular. This episode tries to explain why it’s hard for many cigar reviewers to describe aromas vs. tastes or tactile perceptions. A sensory exercise like this would be good for anyone to be more aware of the confusion that a product like a fine cigar can generate in our senses.

You can also listen to this episode where we discuss another very useful exercise that will help you further develop your palate.
