When you have visited Woody’s Smokes & Brews, you may have noticed that we often keep some cedar strips by our register. Also called a cedar spill, these are used to light cigars. A spill imparts a nice little cedar flavor to the cigar and is an elegant way of lighting a smoke. One word of caution—if you wear white, beware of the ash residue from a burning spill. A spill can be quite messy, especially in untrained hands, so be careful not to turn a shirt into an ashtray with an errant wave of the hand.
