Arturo Fuente makes some of the best cigars in the world, from the “entry level” Curly Head to the super premium Opus X, and everything in between.
One of those cigars that are “in between” is the Grand Reserva Churchill Maduro, which measures 7 ¼ inches in length with a ring gauge of 48.
Made in the Dominican Republic the Churchill Maduro is medium in flavor.
CUBAN CIGAR rollers are claimed to be the most skilled in the world, in their particular trade.
Cuban cigars are either hand made, or machine made, rolled from tobacco leaves found throughout the country of Cuba.
Cigars manufactured in Cuba are widely considered to be without peer, although many experts believe that the best offerings from Honduras and Nicaragua rival those from Cuba.
Cigars from Cuba are derived from tobacco components found throughout the country of Cuba: meaning the filler, the actual tobacco, and wrapper all come from different portions of the island.
Cuban long-filler cigars combine tobaccos from different parts of the island to incorporate several different flavours. Cuban cigars are NOT made from dried and fermented tobacco.
So when you ask yourself, “Is it worth the higher price when I buy a Cuban Cigar?” the answer is “YES!”.
Storing cigars is not as complicated as it seems. It is not all that difficult if you abide by a few simple rules.
Storing cigars in their original boxes is recommended, rather than on open display shelves. The first thing to know is that cigars should ideally stay in a humidor until they’re ready to be smoked
When it comes to storing cigars, liken it to fine wine; it must be preserved in an environment that protects it from changes in climate such as humidity, temperature variations, and light and intrusive odors.
They say that wine only gets better with age, well so does a Cuban cigar!
We love cigars – but what makes a good one ?
Cigars have long been associated with the rich and powerful, with relaxation and rich flavor. Cigar aficionados have created a culture around the art of smoking, assembling various theories and accessories to debate and facilitate smoking. Much like wine tasting, cigar smoking has been seen as a diversion of the upper echelons of society.
Some simple precautions can make a difference to those around who have not discovered the joy of a good cigar – and stop us from getting a bad name !
Smoking cigars may be a great source of pleasure in your life, but the courteous smoker knows that not everyone enjoys the taste (or smell!) of a good Cuban. With the fervor of anti-smoking campaigns still in full swing, the importance of enjoying a good stogie while not offending others cannot be stressed enough.
