A Great Cigar Wrapper

A cigar wrapper is an object of utmost importance when it comes to experiencing a fine cigar. Before choosing and actually smoking a cigar, it’s important to understand how various wrappers affect the smoking experience and flavor.

Four Popular Premium Cigar Wrappers: 

  • Oscuro: These special wrappers are made of tobacco leaves that adorn the tip of the actual plant. Oscuro wrappers are very dark, some actually say they’re black, and can seem quite harsh.
  • Double Claro: This wrapper has a sweet taste, thus ensuring that the entire experience of indulging in a fine cigar is more pleasant.
  • Colorado: The Colorado wrapper is colored in brown with some red shades and it is cultivated in shade, thus leading to a thinner leaf.
  • Claro: Differing from the Double Claro, this wrapper has a light tan color with shades of brown, actually resembling the Colorado.
  • Maduro: The color palette for this type of wrapper ranges from brown to black. The Maduro wrapper offers a sublimely smooth taste.
