Stunning Personalised Engraved Cigar Cutter: Cutting that Cuban
Cuba’s production of cigars can be compared to Napa Valley’s wine culture; it’s taken extremely serious and also draws in tourists from all over the world. Cuban cigars are generally made just like any other cigar. Tobacco plants are planted late in the year and grown for three months before farmers pick them, leaf by leaf. Next, the fresh leaves are taken to the drying room where the leaves are hung to dry in a process of curing, which can take up to three months. Once the leaves are cured, the cigar is ready to be rolled. How each cigar is rolled can influence the quality of the cigar so it’s imperative that the cigar is rolled with all the leaves wrapped in the same direction, leaving a smooth and shiny wrapping. Rolling a perfect cigar is a skill and takes years to master.
Making the Perfect Cut:
The goal in making this cut is to create a smooth opening without compromising the integrity of the cigar. You want to cut enough off for a smooth draw, but not so much that you cut into the main wrapper and risk it unraveling. You need to also cut quickly so that the break is clean and not frayed; you’ll always get some little flecks of wrapper in your mouth, but much fewer with a clean cut.
