WHAT IS A CIGAR?
Cigars come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes, colours, flavours, strengths, packs and prices. Also there are many countries that produce cigar tobaccos with distinct characteristics, and there are a number of different production methods that can be used to make them. For a newcomer the array of products can be bewildering.
CUBAN CIGAR CONSTRUCTION
However, in order to be classified as a “cigar” each and every one must have three component parts. These are:
Wrapper: Thin leaf that dresses the outside of the cigar and is used more for appearance than for taste.
Binder: Just beneath the wrapper are the binder leaves. They are used for construction, to hold the cigar together.
Filler: The filler leaves form the main body of the cigar. It is here that most of the cigar’s strength, flavour, aroma and character are found.
