Capa: Another word for a cigar wrapper.

 

Carotene: A compound found in an aged cigar.

 

Casing: A process used during the production of a cigar, whereby the aged tobacco is slightly moistened, making it easier for hand rollers to perform their function.

 

Cedar: A type of wood used to create cigar boxes, as the lining of humidors, and for the walls of cigar aging rooms. Known to add a “wood” flavor to cigars.

 

Chavetta: A knife in the shape of a crescent, used by rollers to cut leaf, shape the cigar, and pack filler. Also known as a tuck.

Churchill: Named after the man of the same name, the Churchill is a large Corona cigar roughly 7 inches long with a ring gauge between 48 and 50. The cigar was named after Winston Churchill, who smoked between 10 to 25 cigars everyday, and went to great lengths to ensure that he could smoke them whenever he pleased.

Hi,

Here's the second article in the Ultimate Cigar Glossary series, where I try to sum up all the cigar terms that start with the letter C. Not surprisingly, there are quite a few. If you feel that I missed some, please drop me a line and let me know!
