For the most part, you’re not going to see a whole lot of variety when it comes to cigars. I mean, of course, they differ in size and shape and shade, but all cigars are made out of the same three key elements: a wrapper, a binder, and the filler.

 

Cigars are typically long, cylindrical, and rounded as well. This shape is usually referred to as “parejo,” which means parallel in Spanish. That being said, there are numerous cigar shapes available today, (for example, Torpedos, Perfectos, etc.) which differ slightly from each other, although, parallel cigars remain the most popular.

 

Here’s a breakdown of the key parts of a cigar:

 

Wrapper: A cigar's wrapper is the outside layer of tobacco, a full leaf, that holds the cigar together. It is also the essential source of the cigar's flavor. The wrapper is typically the most premium quality leaves and is available in an assortment of colors - from lightest, Double Claro, to the exceptionally dark, Oscuro.

 

Filler: Filler tobacco makes up the internal body of a cigar and typically consists of a blend of different tobaccos. The filler leaves determine the quality of the cigar and the majority of the flavor. 

There are two kinds of filler: short filler, which is composed of small scraps of tobacco and leftovers, and long filler, which is composed of whole, single leaves clustered together.

 

Binders: Binders are the leaves secured together with a paste that holds the bunch of filler tobacco together.
