About Cigars

 

Wrapper

The cigar leaf that is the outer covering of the cigar. A good wrapper is smooth, thick,
and oily to the touch. The best wrappers come from Connecticut , Cameroon , Cuba
and the Dominican Republic.  As much as 75% of the flavor of a cigar comes from the wrapper.
From the African nation of Cameroon , rich and spicy!
Mildest of the wraps, usually the lightest in color.
Wrappers are fermented, robust and slightly sweet.
Indonesian wrap, traditionally the crowd pleaser. 
Our special wrap using two distinct wrappers, Maduro and Connecticut

 

Size

Cigar size is very important when selecting your smoke. A smaller ring size produces
a much hotter smoke, while a larger ring size dictates a cooler longer lasting cigar. Cigars
are measured by ring size and length in inches. Ring size is the circumference of the cigar
and can very from 38 to 60.

Binder

A strong, flexible tobacco leaf found between the wrapper and the filler which holds the form of the cigar true to its shape.  If your cigar burns unevenly, the binder is the problem.
Sumatra
Sumatra binders are neutral, thus allowing the true flavor of the cigar from the filler and wrapper.

 

Filler

Cigar fillers are primarily from the Caribbean, Central and South America and Mexico.  The best leaf comes from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba and has a smooth, spicy sweet flavor.
Jamaican
Filler tends to be sweet and lighter in body.
Dominican
Filler is generally medium bodied with sweet undertones
