WRAPPERS

Havana cigars come in a variety of wrapper shades, usually from claro to maduro. Certain cigars such as Bolivar and Ramon Allones simply look and taste better with a darker shade wrapper. Where as others such as El rey del Mundo tend to suit a lighter wrapper. Our opinion is that the wrapper imparts very little towards the overall flavour of the cigar. Dark oily wrappers, tend to taste a little sweeter to the lips, where as lighter wrappers tend to taste a little drier. Certain people prefer lighter shades, whilst others prefer darker shades and we are always happy to select as close to the customers requirement as possible.

 The image below shows some reasonably typical examples of wrapper shade

This is only a mere example to give you an idea on colours, but of course there are many many shade variations in between.
