Cigars 101…Cigar Terms

CigarCabana.com is full of great information about cigars including some of the most used terms when referring to cigars. Here are a few that have to do with the construction of a cigar:

Binder
The tobacco leaf that holds the filler of the cigar together. Chosen for its durability, the binder is normally a coarse leaf that is often found on the upper part of the tobacco plant. 

Cap
A small, round piece of wrapper leaf attached to the head of a cigar. The purpose of the cap is to secure the wrapper. 

Cigar Band
The label that sits around the head of a cigar. 

Filler
The tobacco leaves that make up the body of a cigar. A combination of leaves from the top, middle and bottom of the tobacco plant are normally used for the filler. 

Foot
The end of the cigar that you light. The foot of a cigar is usually pre-cut. 

Ring Gauge
The thickness, or diameter of a cigar.

Wrapper
The tobacco leaf that is wrapped around the filler and binder of a cigar. A cigar’s wrapper should be perfect: no wrinkles, spots, veins or tears should be evident.
