Cigarillo: A petite cigar, roughly the size of a cigarette that is made of cigar tobacco. Usually machine made and containing short filler, ensuring an even burn.

 

Claro: A cigar wrapper that ranges from pale green to light brown, grown in the shade.

 

Clear Havana: This cigar was manufactured in the United State prior to the days of the Cuban embargo.

 

Cohiba: A native variant of the word tobacco, used to name the cigar made specifically for Fidel Castro.

 

Color: An attribute associated with cigar-leaf wrappers, denoting the shade of the wrapper. Colors range from light green to black. Each shade sports its own name, such as the Colorado and the Claro.

 

Colorado: Named for the Spanish word for “colored”, Colorado is a type of wrapper that is brownish-red in color.

 

Connecticut: This type of wrapper can sometimes be confusing. Traditionally grown in Windsor Connecticut, today you can find Ecuadorean tobacco grown from Connecticut seed.  This type of leaf can be found in both natural and maduro cigars.

 

Consistency: A staple in any premium brand of cigar, consistency refers to the way cigars look and taste. A cigar from a particular premium manufacturer should have the same look and taste in every box.

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!
