Cuban cigars are rolled from tobacco leaves found throughout the country of Cuba. The filler is made of separate leaves folded by hand along their length, to allow a passage through which smoke can be drawn when the cigar is lit. The binder leaf holds the cigar together and is usually two halves of coarse sun-grown leaf from the upper part of the plant. The outside wrapper dictates the cigar’s appearance. Cuban cigars come from different parts of the island. Each brand may be rolled in several different factories in Cuba.
