    In fact, leaves of tobacco while burning produce tar. But this particular cigar is an exception i hope lol

    Thanks for the info on this. Had this happen to me a handful of times, most recently about 15 minutes ago. Just happened to be my one and only 5 Vegas Limitada 2012. As with the few previous occurrences, I didn’t notice it until well after I had it good and going, probably about 1/2 – 1 inch ash. Then as I went in for another delicious puff, the the dreaded taste of bitter tar enveloped my pallet. Just as described in the article above, YUK! I clipped a bit off the end and started over, but I couldn’t seem to recover this time. Though there did not appear to be tar oozing from the head anymore, every single puff from there on out tasted completely bitter and undesirable. Not sure if it really did taste that way or if the contact with the tar just messed up my taste buds. Either way, with about 2/3 of a cigar left, I gave up and tossed it in the bottom of my ashtray. Of course, being a limited release cigar, they’re sold out everywhere now. Bummer.

    Thanks for the clarification. Finally a beautiful spring day to sit out and enjoy a cigar. All of a sudden, the bitter taste hits me. I look at the freshly cut end and see little droplets of goo oozing out. Touch it and it’s like molasses. A quick search in an effort to save it gave me this site. I promptly chopped off 1/8″ and all is well. Some good bourbon took the bitter taste from my mouth.

    This happens to me with almost every single cigar I smoke, From Opus, Davidoff, tatuaje, Padron, and CC. It’s very aggravating, maybe it has to do with the person?? Not really sure but for me it’s just about every cigar, I wish it did not happen.
