Premium cigars are hand crafted masterpieces of tobacco, skill, and just a smidge of vegetable paste to glue everything together. They are painstakingly assembled from cured tobacco leaves. They are one small jewel in Nature’s crown of wonderful discovery and creation. Cigars are an all natural, centuries old product.
So how fragile are cigars? The answer is: extremely fragile, and surprisingly tough. Cigars are a lot like an egg. All things considered, an egg is remarkably strong for being composed of a thin outer shell. Cigars are bunched tobacco leaves bound in a binder leaf and finished with a generally very beautiful wrapper leaf. The wrapper is a truly unique leaf. It gets selected because it tastes good, it looks good, and it can stand up to the rigors of being the outermost layer of the cigar.
