As mentioned in the above graphic, one very useful tool for identifying the flavors of a cigar is a flavor wheel. These helpful charts outline several common flavor descriptors (cocoa, earth, cedar, pepper, etc.) as grouped by core flavor components ( nuts, herbs and spices, woody, mineral, etc.)

These can come in handy while training your palate to recognize flavor components, and help you to identify more complex flavors as your palate develops. Below are two different Flavor Wheels that we sometimes use as reference when tasting and reviewing cigars.
