Depending from the darkens of the wrapper,  the influence on the taste of the cigars vary between 7 and 15%, that's why usually the darker the wrapper is the more influence it has on the taste, the case of most Limited Editions.

Here also we can classify the cigars in 5 major categories:

  • Mild
  • Mild to Medium
  • Medium
  • Medium to Full
  • Full

It is very common to start with mild cigars when you try your first smokes  and you can go up in power until you find what suits you best.

The flavor

It's all about the taste, after few boxes,  your palette will develop and start to recognize the different aromas such spice, earth, leather, bean, coffee, cocoa, wood and red fruit.  

Every cigar has its own story to tell, even in the same box every cigar is unique and with time you will be able to find the best combination between size, color, strength and flavor and decide what are the cigars that match your taste.
