EMS (English Market Selection): English Market selection denotes that a wrapper has a natural color wrapper (ie; not a lighter or darker shade).

 

Entubar: Another method of rolling cigars. Begun in Cuba, this method calls for the roller to roll the individual leaf back upon itself, bunching them all together when he is finished. It is said that this method creates both an even draw and an even burn, and is often favored to the booking method.

 

Escaparates: A cabinet used to cool and keep cigars while they are still at the factory. After being rolled, cigars are kept in an Escaparates for several weeks.

 

Fermentation: The process of composting tobacco under a very controlled process. Tobacco leaves are placed in large piles (remember bulking?) causing them to heat up and remove excess chemicals and concentrate the flavors.

 

Figurado: This Spanish word references cigars with shaped sizes, such as the pyramid and the torpedo.

 

Filler: This is another component of a cigar. The filler can consist of anywhere from two to five different types of filler tobacco. There are two fillers: long and short. Short means that the filler is made of scrap of tobacco and tells you that the cigar is most likely machine made. Long means that the filler is made up of long strands of tobacco leaf.

 

Finish: After you take a puff on a cigar, you may not a lingering taste. This is known as the Finish. The strength of your cigar determines the degree that you will notice this finish.

 

Flag Leaf: These are used in place of a cap, and are simply a continuation of the wrapper leaf, shaped to the head of the cigar.

 

Foot: The end of the cigar that you light.
