A cigar is dried tobacco, rolled up into a tube of any number of sizes, ranging from the 3 1/2-inch cigarillo to the 9 1/4-inch gran corona. Cigars are made with three often different types of tobacco leaves — filler, binder, and wrapper — and hail from numerous countries, largely in and around the Caribbean. Cigars have long been intertwined with the consumption of alcohol, particularly fine rums and whiskeys — with some spirits designed especially for such purposes. At Drinkhacker, our occasional cigar reviews are designed with such pairings firmly in mind.
