Cuban Cigar Taste Guide

Cuban cigars are a particularly unique cigar, due in part to the specific variations in soil that can be found in different regions throughout Cuba. Due to this soil diversity, five different types of tobacco leaves are produced and are then used for rolling cigars.

The first are used for the aroma of the cigar; the second are used for taste; the third dictates how the cigar draws; the fourth are used for binding together the previous leaves; and the fifth are used for wrapping the cigar.

Some of these mentioned leaves can be aged for up to seven years before they are deemed eligible to be rolled into a cigar!
