What is a Cigar?
Cigars are long and cylindrical, with a mouthpiece on one end and tobacco filler in the middle. They contain a binder leaf and wrapper leaf to hold the tobacco together. The cigar’s wrapper is the outermost layer, often dark in color and displaying the brand’s name or band. The shade of the wrapper can add sweetness or dryness to the overall flavor of the cigar.
Cigar smoking is a ritual and social experience. It can be a relaxing activity that allows the smoker to slow down and savor the flavor, aroma, and body of the cigar. It can also help relieve stress and tension. Cigar smoking has been associated with class and high society since its inception, and it is often depicted in historic portrayals of the wealthy. It is often given as a gift and smoked in celebration of special events, such as the birth of a child, or for recognition of accomplishments.
Cigars are made from tobacco that is handcrafted and aged to produce a full-flavored and aromatic product. A good cigar is complex, with an underlying earthiness and a mellow spice cabinet taste. The smoke can also have notes of cocoa and coffee that are perfect with a glass of whiskey or a nice bottle of wine. Cigars can be a great addition to a night with friends and are perfect for sipping while chatting and laughing. Cigar smoking is considered a hobby by many and requires patience and dedication to master the skill of cutting, lighting, cuffing, and enjoying the full flavor of a fine cigar.
