Know the parts of a cigar

In order for you to have a better idea of what to look for when looking for that perfect smoke for you, it is necessary that you familiarized youself with the different parts of a cigar first.

The head is the part that you put in your mouth. It is also the side that you have to cut. Next is the foot, which is the part that you will light. It also needs to be cut, but most of the time, the shops can do this for you. A cigar also has a filler which consists of dried and fermented tobacco. This is what gives you the taste and aroma. Lastly, you have the wrapper which can also add to the aroma of the smoke.

When choosing a quality cigar, consider the following factors.

Body

When you say “body”, it refers to the strength of the flavor that you get from your smokes. You will see the full-flavored cigars that usually come in dark wrappers. But since you are still a beginner, it is highly recommended that you try the medium-bodied cigars as they are milder. These are the ones that have light-colored wrappers.

Size

The commercial smokes also come in various sizes. Typically, the larger ones are those that are richer in taste or flavor. You can pick a smaller size to start. As you get used to smoking, you can always go for the bigger ones somewhere down the road.

Construction

The best way for you to choose a quality cigar is to inspect its construction. Try to roll the smokes between your fingers and feel any bumps. If you notice that the tobacco are evenly distributed, then you can be sure that it is of high-quality.
