The Basics of Cigars

Cigars are made up of a variety of tobacco leaves wrapped together. Unlike cigarettes, cigars do not contain any steams or byproducts. They are handmade and crafted entirely out of tobacco from the filler to the binder leaf.

Smoking cigars is a social pastime that can be shared with friends and family, or can even spark a friendship or business relationship. It can also be a great way to relax and decompress.

The Cigar:

The cigar is a rolled bundle of dried and fermented tobacco leaves. It comes in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and varieties. The wrapper is the outermost layer of the cigar and can be in different shades to indicate the type of tobacco, age, and fermentation level.


The tobacco used to make a cigar is sourced from different countries and is mixed for strength, aroma, and flavor profiles. Generally, fatter cigars hold more filler leaves and allow for a greater potential for the creation of complex flavors.


Cigars should be aged properly, so that the flavor is mellowed and refined. It can take many years for tobacco to develop the rich, deep notes of almond, raisin and orange blossom that cigar smokers love.

A Good Construction:

A well-made cigar will draw and burn correctly, offering a fine, consistent smoke experience from start to finish. A cigar that isn’t constructed properly can be difficult to enjoy because it won’t draw well, or it might not burn evenly.
