WHAT IS LONG FILLER?Generally, the term long filler is self-descriptive when referring to the tobacco that goes inside the cigar. A supreme quality premium cigar has two or five tobacco leaves of fillings - seco, viso and ligero, volado, and medio tiempo, which are different parts of the tobacco plant. Ligero is the top most part where the flowers bloom. Viso is the part which comes just after that. Seco is the middle part of the plantation. Volado leaves are the lowest part of the shrub. The whole leaves are large, folded or rolled together and form a tube wrapped by a binder & wrapper leaves. On the other hand, short fillers are made of chopped up leaves generally left over from a process of making pure cigars manually. It is used in a plethora of cigars that are either machine-made or a hybrid of short and some long leaves, quite called a Cuban Sandwich.CIGAR FILLER TYPES You must not have come across these two terms namely: tripa and picadura. Tripa is termed as whole tobacco leaves that run the length of the cigar which is also popularly known as Long fillers while Picadura means chop as in chopped-up tobacco which means Short-filler.Ligero Leaf TobaccoLigero pronounced as lee-herr-oh is a leaf found at the top most part of a tobacco plant. La Invicta Nicaraguan Shorts is one of the other machine made cigars containing these leaves. It takes more time to mature than the leaves in the middle and bottom of the stalk. Cigar-makers use Ligero to add power to a blend and usually put Ligero in every centre of the filler bundle as it burns gradually. A few cigars that contains ligero tobacco is the Viso Leaf TobaccoViso (pronounced as vee-soh) grows on the mid part of the tobacco plant below Ligero. Viso delivers more flavour & possesses more oily substance than the seco leaves, but those leaves are not too strong than Ligero.  Rafael Gonzalez Perla Cigars box is the one of the cigar that uses these tobacco leaves. Viso when added to cigars provide a very slow burn allowing plenty of time for cigar lovers and aficionados to enjoy their smoke whereas Seco on the other hand, is more steady in burn than Ligero.Seco Leaf TobaccoShko leaves are slightly dry and it’s found in the section after Viso on the plantation. The mild flavour that Guantanamera Minutos cigar exhibits in its smoke is nothing more than the taste of the seco leaves. Mostly, for its dryness and the taste, Seco is utilised to temper the blend in a cigar and is relatively mild at the same time. Volado Leaf TobaccoThe most bottom part of the leaves is called Volado pronounced voh-lah-dough inherits no flavours, thus it burns really perfectly. One cigar that is essentially created using seco leaf is cohiba club cigars pack and montecristo puritos cigar pack both of which are also popular cubans that are machine made. All cigars that are rolled must contain use of leaves from all the three parts to produce that best burn and flavoured taste. Medio Tiempo Leaf TobaccoThe very top two leaves of the tobacco plant is dubbed as the Medio Tiempo pronounced the meh-dyo tiyempo, included in many famous cigars one of which is Trinidad shorts cigar and Montecristo open mini cuban cigar pack both of them have a huge fan following among celebrities. In recent years, the Cuban Cohiba Behike has included the very top two leaves of the tobacco plant that have been dubbed Medio Tiempo (meh-dyo tiyempo). These leaves used to be thrown in with the Ligero leaves. They’re rare, very small and get more time in the sun than the rest of the leaves, and the Cubans attribute a specific richness to them.

  • Why are cohiba cigars everyone’s favourite?

    Today, Cohiba which was earlier introduced to be a private brand for use only among the Diplomats is now loved and smoked by many cohiba lovers. Enthusiasts even browse for best shops to buy cohiba cigars online. Probably, the US trade embargo which is posed against the cuban cigars brand does not stop every cigar admirer from pursuing them. I like to admit that cuban cigars have an all time growing popularity around the globe among novice, smokers and the cigar aficionados. Since Christopher Columbus did his part of work in introducing the cuban cigars to the Europeans. Besides, several aficionados apart from Winston Churchill such as Fidel Castro have also shown their utmost favouritism towards cubans.

  • Are Cuban cigars really better? What the experts say.
    Why Habanos Cuban Cigars Are so sought for? Well, from decades onward, the Cuban cigars have retained a prominent position as a global ostentatiously expensive and luxurious tobacco product. Each hand-made Cuban undergoes an arduous effort from seeds to cigars which in return produces such a delicate masterpiece that is adored by cigar lovers. Although, over the past 15 years, there has been a vast change with cigar manufactured from different countries as they can be compared by distinct characteristics such as its price, quality and taste. Several American do complain about a lot of Cubans being fake there, but you need to have certain level of experience to augment the difference between a real cigar or otherwise. Then, why do scads of denizens have a predilection towards these. Is its eminence the main reason behind it being so expensive? The traditional methods of creating a cigar in Cuban factories remain the same after 100 years or more, where the every year tobacco plantations are grown in bulk,, harvested and placed in the secaderos for drying and slow aging while it is thoroughly inspected for the aroma, favors and burning characterize, later handled by the torcedor to roll it into a Cuban cigar.
