Colorado

 

Moving away from the Claro, we come to the Colorado, though in truth, it is still an offshoot of the Colorado Claro. It is redder the Colorado Claro, and has an oilier sheen. The taste is mostly the same, though some claim it to be a little smoother and more flavorful. It is also known for its sex appeal, as it is quite an attractive wrapper.

 

The Colorado, and its hybridic brethren the Corojo and Habana2000, are all relatively rare, but they can be found with a modicum of effort (an effort worth putting forth). In particular, the Corojo is said to give you the feel of a Cuban cigar (in Cuba, they wrap their cigars in Cuban Corojo) without all the legality.

 

Maduro

 

A real treat, the Maduro is a majestic wrapper. Requiring a long process to prepare (it is left on the plant for longer than other wrappers), the Maduro is dark brown in color and is known for its rich taste. This cigar is described as intensely sweet. Make sure the wrapper is very oily, as that means it has been properly handled and humidified.

 

This wrapper is not as “pretty” as some of the others, such as the Claro. You will find veins and perhaps even bumps on this wrapper, but in my opinion, this just lends to the experience. It is a wonderful texture in your mouth. Examples of cigars sporting this flavorful, spicy wrapper are the Punch Gran Cru and the Ashton.

 

Double Maduro

 

Twice as manly as the Maduro, and even spicier in flavor, the Double Maduro (also known as Maduro Maduro or oscuro) is thick, veiny, and dark brown in color. It is more rare than the Maduro, so finding one may be difficult. The JR Ultimate is an example of a cigar that wears the Double Maduro freak flag.

James, a few corrections for your article on wrappers. "Colorado" is the Spanish word for "colored", not for red. The word for red is "rojo". Second, maduro wrappers are not rare, they are as common as natural wrappers.

Double Maduro is not a type of wrapper leaf, it is a style of cigar, where both the wrapper and binder use maduro leaf.

Mike, just want to point out that the word for "colored' in Spanish is "colorido" Colorado and red are the same thing hence the reddish color of the Colorado(red) wrappers.

I am from the DR.

Thanks for the response and reading the article. You are right with regards to the term "Colorado" meaning colored and not red; I guess my Spanish is a little rusty! As for the Double Maduro not being a type of wrapper leaf, its more linguistics than anything else; its probably more commonly known as an oscuro or maduro maduro wrapper (hence the double maduro).

Thanks for pointing this out though, and I will make sure it gets changed!

In Dominican Spanish "Colorado" means Red. Just wanted to straighten this up. ( I am a native)
