Cigar 101 - Cigar How-to's from Cigar Advisor

Anything we can do to promote the enjoyment of and knowledge about premium cigars...contributes to a deeper satisfaction when it's time to light up.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor has just published an update to their instructional Cigars 101 series, defining basic terms used in the hobby of cigar smoking.

Cigar Advisor Magazine has published a new article to its Cigars 101 section, entitled “A Primer on Cigar Terms." Written as an instructional article, Cigar Advisor Executive Editor Lou Tenney explains that in 15 years of cigar smoking, he's realized that cigar makers have no problems using terms very liberally, much to the chagrin of cigar newbies everywhere.

The article begins by explaining the different terms used to describe the color of cigar wrappers, including Jade, Claro, Colorado, Colorado Maduro, Maduro, Oscuro, and the synonyms of each.

Tenney goes on to explain the constituent parts of premium cigars, including fillers, binders, and wrappers. He then elaborates on the people involved in the creation and production of cigars: blenders, bunchers, and rollers.

The article finishes by discussing the art of applying caps to cigars, and breaking down the basics of cigar shapes.

According to Tenney, "I was glad to produce the piece. There seems to be a lot of confusion about these terms, especially among newer cigar smokers. Anything we can do to promote the enjoyment of and knowledge about premium cigars and the cigar making process is useful for cigar smokers, and contributes to a deeper satisfaction when it's time to light up."
