Spice & Nutty
When a cigar is described as spicy, it often refers to the complexity it bestows upon your palate, with specific spiced notes, like cinnamon, nutmeg, or chili, but it can also be used to refer to the strength the tobacco content imparts on the smoking experience. You may notice some cigars have more of a flavorful kick, while others are more mild.
A cigar is made up of three main parts: The Head, the Body, and the Foot. The Body refers to the cigar itself. The Head is the end of the cigar you smoke, and the Foot is the end of the cigar you light.
The binder—or filler—is the layer of tobacco directly underneath the wrapper that helps a cigar burn smoothly and hold its structure. They are often crafted from a single leaf, but Double Binders feature a blend for further complexity.
“This beautiful cigar opens with great spicy notes and a hint of leather. Rich floral notes during the smoke give a great balance to the earth and wood notes that come together with a touch of licorice and walnut."
