Of all the steps in the making of a cigar, aging the tobacco is one of the most important ones. Here, Alejandro Turrent of Casa Turrent Cigars shares a tip on how to tell if you’re smoking a cigar with a well-aged wrapper.

Transcript:

The fermentation, the aging of the tobacco leaf, not the cigar, fermentation of the tobacco leaf is the most important. People say that as a marketing tool, that the cigars have been aged for many years.

In my experience, what you need to age is the tobacco leaf itself. Not so much the cigar. That’s the case of our tobacco, and I’m talking in particular about the tobacco from Mexico and the San Andres Maduro. And a way to know if the wrapper, at least, is well-aged, is well-fermented, is when you see that it burns without any white or cream line while it’s burning, and it leaves small grains of kind of a salt. Then is when you can tell, when you can say that the wrapper, at least, is very, very well-aged.
