Cigar news you can use: Where did that come from?

Cigar news:

Cigar tobacco is typically categorized into several main types of leaves, each contributing to the overall flavor, aroma, and characteristics of the cigar. These types include:

  1. Wrapper: This is the outermost leaf and has a significant impact on the cigar’s appearance, flavor, and aroma. Varieties like Connecticut, Habano, Maduro, and Sumatra are commonly used.
  2. Binder: Found beneath the wrapper, the binder leaf holds the filler together. It plays a role in combustion and contributes to the cigar’s construction and flavor profile.
  3. Filler: These are the innermost leaves and are responsible for the bulk of the cigar’s blend. Different types of filler tobacco, such as Ligero, Seco, and Viso, are used to create a balanced and complex flavor.
  4. Ligero: This type of filler leaf comes from the top of the tobacco plant and tends to be rich and bold in flavor.
  5. Seco: Positioned below Ligero on the plant, Seco leaves provide a smoother and milder flavor.
  6. Viso: Filler leaves in between Ligero and Seco in terms of position and flavor intensity. They contribute to the overall complexity of the blend.
  7. Aromatic: Some cigar blends may include flavored or aromatic tobacco leaves to enhance the smoking experience with additional scents and flavors.

Cigar makers carefully select and blend different types of tobacco leaves to achieve the desired taste, strength, and complexity for their cigars.
