Cigar Wrappers For Sale
What does the Cigar Wrapper contribute to Cigar Flavor?
The Camacho Candela was now available in a reissue. It came wrapped in an unusually olive-drab green wrapper. I started to think about how different wrappers can affect the flavor of cigars. This Camacho Candela was so much different than any other Camacho cigars I've ever tried.
The wrappers are what give cigars their look. They can also be used to help you get an idea of what to expect. A creamier golden wrapper will have a different flavor to a dark brown wrapper ( that is so dark it is almost black).
How much of this is due to the cigar wrapper and not the various tobaccos used in cigars today? The wrapper can have a significant impact on the cigar's flavor, contrary to popular belief.
The wrapper is what makes your cigar taste different. It is located on the outside of the cigar and is against your lips. If you don't know anything about the cigar other than the wrapper color or type, the best way to choose a cigar is to use the wrapper to guide you.
In fact, while on vacation, I have done exactly that. If I stayed with the darker wrappers, I was able to find decent cigars in countries where cigars were scarce (but not English speakers). Similar to what I smoke in the United States, something like the Maduro cigars .
I digress. But back to the main point. I believe that cigars have a lot more flavor than the filler tobacco or the binder. The cigar wrapper is often more influential than the flavor. The wrapper can actually be responsible for more than half of the flavor.
It is important to understand what type of wrapper we're talking about in order to determine how much flavor the wrapper will deliver. A Connecticut Shade wrapper, for example, is often considered one of the lighter-bodied wrappers available.
Connecticut Shade cigars are known for being some of the most mild. The wrapper, although it contributes a lot to the flavor of the cigar, is unlikely to make up more than half of the overall flavor. The cigar's tobacco is therefore more important than any other cigar.
Now, think about a dark, oily Maduro Oscuro wrapper. It is so flavorful and delicious that it will overpower all other flavors. It is less likely that the filler or binder matters as much as the flavor of the Maduro cigar you are smoking if you enjoy a dense, thick cloud of smoke.
Camacho Candela, the Camacho Candela I smoked yesterday (that mossy-green wrapper I mentioned earlier), imparted much the bittersweet and sweet flavors that I enjoyed. It was also quite strong and delicious.
However, the wrapper does not determine the cigar's flavor. If you want to decide which cigar you smoke, it is important to consider the wrapper.
It can be difficult to choose a cigar, especially if you are unable to find it somewhere.
Knowing that the wrapper provides most of the flavor in a cigar will help you find one you like, even if it's not what you usually smoke.
