The amazing thing about premium cigars is they’re the ultimate form of nature’s perfect simplicity. They are made of one thing and one thing only, and that’s tobacco. Pure, unadulterated tobacco. Unlike mass produced cigarillos or cigarettes, not a single leaf is chemically treated or artificially altered for taste. Everything from the cigar’s flavor to color is achieved through natural means.
Premium cigars come in a variety of types, and when people normally refer to cigar types they’re generally talking about the wrapper color, what region it’s from, and the physical shape. Each and every one of those characteristics tell us a lot about the cigar. That’s why Cigar World put together a helpful guide so you can always be in the know around how a cigar’s wrapper, country of origin, and shape will determine the cigar type.
