Cigar Terminology for beginners
The single leaf that practically wraps around the outside of the cigar is known as the wrapper. It contributes about 60% of the cigar’s final taste.

A cigar’s core leaves, which are nearly always a mixture of several sorts of leaves.
It is tobacco. It is used to keep a cigar together. It’s the most challenging leaf in the cigar, but it’s also the most flavorful.
The diameter of a cigar measured in sixty-fourths of an inch is known as the ring gauge. The diameter of the cigar increases as the ring gauge increases.
Head or cap
The end of a cigar that is cut and placed in the mouth is known as the head or cap. Make careful not to cut off the entire cap, as this will cause the wrapper to unravel.
The lit end of a cigar is referred to as the foot. Before lighting, take a breath of this end to get a sense of the amount of tobacco inside.
Strength and Body
The terms “strength” and “body” are not interchangeable. The strength of a cigar refers to how strongly its nicotine affects the smoker; the body relates to the influence of the cigar’s tastes in the mouth and the mouthfeel and overall richness.
