From seed to cigar, each hand-rolled Cuban cigar undergoes about 500 manual tasks. Cigars produced in other Caribbean and Central American nations are now similar in terms of price, consistency, and quality over the past 25 years.
Some of the experts suggest that over 95% of Cuban Cigars sold in the market are actually counterfeit. So why Cuban Cigars are so Desirable & Expensive?
Cuba's tradition of cigar production dates back more than 200 years. In a process that takes about a year, Tobacco leaves are grown, harvested and hung in drying houses called Secaderos. Before a slow fermentation that improves flavor, aroma, and burning qualities takes place. Each leaf is examined for quality, type, and appearance before being given to a Torcedor, a highly skilled cigar roller which is well-respected in Cuban society.
Each Cuban Cigar is made up of five type of leaves.
A leaf that is called Ligero, which gives strength to the Cigar. Another one is Seco, which helps in the Aroma. Another leaf is called Volado, which is incharge of Combustion inside the Cigar. Followed by the Binder, that wraps the Ligero, Seco & Volado. And the last leaf is Wrapper, it is the one that dresses up the Cigar and give presentation to the Cigar.
Before they leave the factory, every cigar is checked to see if it is well made, properly rolled and free from any flaws. It has been estimated that it takes over 100 steps to produce a single Cuban cigar, hence their high price point. It is the care and detail that goes into making each one that sets them apart from other types of cigar.
