Cigar tobacco takes great work as any agricultural products. The harvesting is the
backbreaker. Countless days in very hot fields are how tobacco pickers spend their
days. The take the leads by hand and gather them into bushels and then hand them
off for aging to the factory. Cigars are then rolled in the factory starting with
the folding of the leaves.
The leaves are placed on top of one another to allow the air to pass through properly.
This results in a subtle draw that is one of the key characteristics to a premium
cigar. Further the amount of leads in the cigar matters to the taste. Also the ash
will not hold as well or as long if the tobacco leaves are not dressed properly.
One of the signs of a premium cigar is the actual hold and this is done through a
generous amount of cigar tobacco used in the filler. The binder which is the leaf
surrounding the filler tobacco is also instrumental for a long ash.
The wrapper leaf on the other hand is used intentionally in the combination of filler
to produce the end result and desired body of the cigars taste
