Cigars are comprised of surprisingly few component parts. Cigars are all tobacco whereas cigarettes have filters, two different kinds, and colors of paper, and filler ingredients other than tobacco.

What makes a cigar so different from another is the type of tobacco, where it’s grown, when the leaves are picked, how the picked leaves are cured and fermented, and how the finished leaves are cut and rolled. Because there are many cigar manufacturers around the Globe, there is a diverse range of products.


The wrapper is the outermost layer of cigars. Cigars in Florida are made from the finest tobacco leaves, and it has a huge impact on the cigar’s aroma and flavor. Cigar wrappers vary in color. Because the wrapper color is most visible, cigars are often described by the wrapper color. Here is a list, from lightest to darkest:

  • Double Claro: It is a very light color. The color comes from leaves that are picked immature and cured quickly.
  • Claro: It is light-brown or yellowish-brown color, which is the result of tobacco plants grown predominantly in shade.
  • Natural: light-brown or brown.
  • Colorado Claro: It is medium-brown color and is most often associated with Cuban or Dominican Republic tobacco.
  • Colorado or Rosado: reddish-brown.
  • Maduro: It is dark-brown color and is a very popular color among serious connoisseurs of cigars.
  • Oscuro: It is very dark-brown to oily black and typically exudes a pungent aroma and deeper flavor.


Cigars are mostly composed of filler tobacco. Cigars have a filler consisting of three basic types: Seco, Volado, and Ligero. Seco filler Cigars are drier and have a lighter flavor. Volado filler cigars have a mid-range of flavor. Ligero filler cigars are the darkest and oiliest, producing lots of bold flavors and aromatic smoke.

It is good to choose thicker cigars as it has more room for filler tobacco. In these thick cigars, the cigar maker adds blends of Seco, Volado, and Ligero varieties. These cigars generally produce more varied and complex flavor combinations.


Many low-end cigars only use wrappers and fillers. But the best quality cigars have another component binders. You can visit this link to know the role of binders in cigars and how it helps the cigars hold the filler material together in a more cohesive manner.
