As much for its pleasure, smoking cigars is widely associated with rich and powerful. Winston Churchill, the former British Prime Minister who successfully led UK in World War II, is perhaps the most popular cigar smoking personality in history. Let us explore cigars in more detail -
A cigar is basically a tightly rolled bundle of dried and fermented tobacco. The tobacco can be ignited so that the smoke may be drawn into the smoker's mouth. Cigar smoking was common during the 19th century; a time when cigarette smoking was relatively rare. The cigar business was a predominant industry, where many people were employed, rolling cigars manually. As a matter of fact, even today, quality cigars are still hand-made. There are some cigars that are totalmente a mano, i.e. "totally by hand" or hecho a mano, i.e. “made by hand". A major part of a cigar is made up of fillers. Fillers are basically wrapped-up bunches of leaves inside the wrapper. Some cigars, especially the premium brands, make use of different varieties of tobacco for the filler and the wrapper.
If the proof of popularity of a product or a brand is in the presence of its counterfeits, then Cuban Cigar is undoubtedly the crown king of cigars. It is estimated that most of the “Cuban Cigars” sold in the United States are counterfeits. Cuba is well-known as the land of best tobacco all over the world. Cigars made from Cuban tobacco are regarded to be of higher quality and better taste. It is believed that the first plantations started in the 18th century, by the East of the Island, and gradually extended to the West. Cuban natives regarded tobacco (or Cohiba as they call it) as a miraculous medicine, and an integral element in social, religious, and political ceremonies. Most Cuban long-filler cigars combine tobaccos from various parts of the island to impart several different flavors to the cigar. Some cigars also make use of a third variety of tobacco leaf for the “binder", i.e. the filler and the outer wrapper.
