Cigar Sense is delighted to announce a new series of virtual seminars available to all Cigar Sense users for free! During these interactive seminars, Franca will lead a sensory game with a discussion. The objectives are:
- draw the attention on how everybody’s tasting notes can be different from others’ and why
- provide hints on how to identify flavor notes when tasting a cigar
- focus on substantiating a cigar’s characteristics rather than promoting the cigar
- make the cigar tasting a game rather than a rigorous exercise
You will hone your ability to articulate your sensations as you taste a cigar, but will also compare your tasting notes with the other participants’ findings. You will be able to enjoy the sensory game regardless of how experienced you are in the cigar world. It is sufficient to know how to cut and light a cigar.
Register for free!
You need to have an account with Cigar Sense (free members are welcome!) to access the online form that will be used during the seminar.

We began the Cigar Sense Virtual Seminars in April, 2020, with a series of live events involving the best in the field, all focused on the common thread of consumer learning to maximize the cigar experience.
