As a public service, CigarMKE likes to educate the novice cigar smoker on the terms used with our passion.
According to Thompson Cigar Company, here are some common terms used in cigar smoking & their definitions
FILLER: Inner tobacco bulk of the cigar.
BINDER: Leaf that holds the filler together.
WRAPPER: The outer tobacco leaf covering of a cigar.
Medium Brown – Colorado, Connecticut, Sungrown & Natural
Dark Brown – Maduro
Reddish Brown – Rosado
Light Green – Candela or Cameroon if grown in Africa
Measuring system for cigars is done with length being shown in inches & thickness (or diameter) of a cigar in units of 64 (64 is equal to 1 inch).
Therefore a 5” x 48 cigar is, 5 inches long & ¾” diameter (1/64 x 48).
