Cigar Mouthpieces

I'd like to get the opinion of Jorge, our resident cigar guru, on the merits/demerits of cigar holders or cigar mouthpieces. I would have to liken it to engaging contraceptive sex: that is an entirely artificial falsification of the real thing.

The 19th century Smoker's Guide, Philosopher and Friend, by "A Veteran of Smokedom," puts it this way: "For our part, to smoke a cigar through a mouthpiece is equivalent to kissing a lady through a respirator." (p. 61)
