When it comes to tobacco, there is usually a well-defined distinction between the Regular Vs. Premium kind.
You will often find 'premium' tobacco products, such as cigars, priced at outrageously high rates. These rates are only attached to products that have the premium label attached to them.
Are you craving a taste for premium tobacco? Tabanero Cigars has got you covered. Their range of premium yet well-priced cigars are sure to satisfy your cravings, as well as your budget.
Today, we will look at a typical example of a premium tobacco product - such as premium cigars - and make a judgment on whether a booming difference in prices is justified. We shall also go over some common types of tobacco and which products are available in the market.
A premium cigar differs from a non-premium cigar in several ways, including the work, craft, and price. The production of premium cigars is manual. Non-premium cigars, on the other hand, are frequently manufactured by machinery.
Premium cigars use tobacco solely and are harvested, cured, and fermented in the same way as non-premium cigars. Non-premium cigars, in opposition to premium cigars, may be treated chemically.
Non-premium cigar makers can change the color and flavor of their tobacco by treating them with chemicals. The color, aroma, and flavor profile of premium cigars, on the other hand, are all created through the curing and fermenting process.
Each of these cigars is rolled by hand to showcase the workmanship associated with premium cigars. As you may have seen, the price gap between premium and non-premium cigars is large.
Premium cigars are more expensive because of the time and effort required by cigar rollers to hand-roll your cigar.
There is also a distinction in the locations where premium cigars are supplied.
Aside from pricing, the location where you buy the cigar may indicate whether you're obtaining a premium or non-premium cigar.
One of the easiest ways to identify if you're buying a quality cigar is to inquire about its origins and whether it's hand-rolled or machine-rolled.
Furthermore, understanding the roots of how your cigar was rolled can give you a new respect for the effort and dedication that went into making it.
While some quality cigars are more expensive than others, not all premium cigars are.
So, do you think the high price is justified for a premium tobacco product? After going over the above information, it might be so.
Tobacco can be smoked, chewed, or sniffed. Cigarettes, cigars, bidis, and kreteks are examples of smoked tobacco products. Some individuals also use a pipe or hookah - also known as a water pipe - to smoke loose tobacco. Chewing tobacco, snuff, dip, and snus are all chewed tobacco products. The type of chewing tobacco known as snuff can also be sniffed as opposed to chewing.
Cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, bidis, chuttas, and kreteks are among the many smoking tobacco products available on the global market. Blended tobaccos are used in cigarettes and cigars, and the type of tobacco used in these products has a significant impact on the physicochemical nature of the smoke produced.
Plant genetics, farming practices, climatic conditions, and curing procedures all influence the chemical composition of tobacco leaves. The leaf tobacco frequently used in cigarettes is classified primarily by curing procedures and tobacco kinds.
There are two or more varieties in each class. Individual flue-cured tobacco types are no longer easily distinguishable, and the type identification usually solely refers to a marketing region. Although different countries use different words for categorization, the underlying premise remains the same.
The wrapper refers to the cigar's exterior tobacco leaf. Because there are so many varieties, the wrapper can have an influence on the full flavor and appearance of the cigar.
Wrappers are often taken from the larger, thinner leaves near the bottom of the tobacco plant. However, Maduro wrappers are frequently sourced from top leaves. The leaves are aged from their natural green tint to varied degrees of brown perfection. The variety of flavors and aesthetics is vast, with no less than fifty wrapper types.
As you guessed it - here we will be discussing the Maduro Wrapper. We will be going over what a Maduro Wrapper is and what exactly makes Maduro Wrappers unique from other wrappers.
Maduro Wrappers, unlike most other common wrappers, are not really defined by their country of origin or even the type of leaf involved. Maduro is a Spanish word that means matured. Maduro wrappers, on the other hand, are made from matured leaves that have gone through a natural fermentation process, resulting in a gorgeous dark brown leaf.
Maduro wrappers have deeper and more nuanced flavors as a result of their age. The end product is determined by the type of leaf used, albeit not any leaf can be used as a Maduro wrapper. Just those who have the rigor to withstand the aging process for years are eligible.
You can choose from a wide range of Maduro wrappers to suit your preferences. They're easy to recognize because of their darker color, but keep in mind that they differ depending on the type of leaves utilized.
Natural wrappers are lighter in color, whereas Maduro wrappers are darker. Because the color of the brown can range from dark brown to midnight black, there are many different sorts of Maduro.
The Maduro receives more sunshine throughout the growth phase, as well as an extra fermentation during the processing of the tobacco leaves, which results in the color variation.
After undergoing a lengthy fermentation process to convert the starches in the leaves into sugars, the wrappers are cured for an extended amount of time to achieve their trademark black, oily surface.
Natural wrappers with a lighter hue are created from tobacco that has not been exposed to direct sunlight. To shelter them from direct sunshine, some tobaccos are grown in cheesecloth.
The darker Maduro, on the other hand, has been exposed to direct sunshine. Natural wrapper leaves are also dried at a slower rate, giving them their distinctive light golden tan hue.
The extra fermentation that the Maduro wrapper receives gives it a richer, more nuanced flavor than the natural wrapper. Maduro wrappers have a spectrum of flavors from chocolate to peppery, with a sweet taste from the extra fermenting that makes it a perfect match with cognac or rum.
Many people love Maduro-wrapped cigars during the cooler months, gently smoking them and being warmed by the deep, sweet flavor and a natural pairing with cognac and whiskey. Natural wrapped cigars, on the other hand, are popular in the spring and summer because of their light flavor, which goes well with hot, humid weather.

As people watch our rollers, they often ask why cigars come in various lengths and gauges. The size of the cigar dictates several cigar characteristics. First the length of the cigar helps to dictate how long you want to smoke the cigar for. For example, if you are interested in a short duration smoke you may want to consider a cigar between 4-5 inches in length. For a longer smoke, an hour to an hour and a half you will want to consider a cigar 6-7+ inches long. The thickness, or gauge of a cigar will also dictate the strength of the cigar. In general, the thicker the cigar the stronger it will be. This is simply due to the cigar having more room for tobacco filler. The shape of the cigar is also important. For example a torpedo allows you to control the amount of smoke that you take in on each draw. The more you cut from the end of the cigar the more smoke you get with each draw.
When visiting the factory people often ask the question, “What is your best cigar?” The answer simply put is, “It depends.” It generally depends on how often you smoke and how long you want to smoke a cigar for. For people who are not seasoned cigar smokers, we will often recommend to them a Tabanero Blend One Robusto size cigar lasting 30 minutes and having a mild body. For the everyday cigar smoker we will often recommend the Toro sized cigar, our top seller and most popular medium bodies cigar lasting an average of 1 hour. The other thing to consider is the time of day you smoke cigars. People often find themselves smoking one of our premium cigars in the morning with their coffee. For this time of day, we recommend a Tabanero Robusto size cigar which is mild in body and lasts roughly 30-45 minutes and pairs nicely with coffee. As the day progresses and our palette matures, we recommend transitioning into a Tabanero Toro and Torpedo sized cigars to experience a medium to full body. These sized cigars are great in the afternoon and evening after a meal or with a fine liquor such as a single malt whisky.
There are many reasons for having different size cigars. At the end of the day it really comes down to personal preference. When determining what size cigar you are interested in you can ask yourself some basic questions based on how long you have to enjoy your cigar and the strength of the cigar.
