Cuban cigars

The Cuban Cigar was born more than five hundred years ago, when the Taino Indians rolled and burnt some mysterious leaves, which they called "Cohiba". The 1492 Spanish expedition commanded by Christopher Columbus saw tobacco for the first time in the New World. The heart of distinction is the tobacco and its taste, born of a combination of four factors that exist only in Cuba: the soil, the climate, the varieties of Cuban black tobacco seed, and the know-how of the tobacco growers and cigar-makers. Also the anatomy of the Habano (Filler, Binder and Wrapper) are 100% from Cuba and mostly coming from the same top farms. Habanos can be classified in different sizes and shapes. 
Referring to ring gauge, it can be classified as follows:

Grueso - between 46 (18.26mm) to 58 (22.62mm)
Medio - between 40 ( 15.88mm) and 44 (17.46mm)
Fino
 - between 39 (15.48mm) and 26 (10.32 mm)

Parejo, Figurado and doble figurado are the main shapes to consider.

There are 27 premium brands which are available in an impressive 220 different sizes, offering endless possibilities for the cigar aficionado to explore. All tobacco leaves for Cuban cigars are fermented at least twice and aged for months or even years; and the longer they are aged, the more mellow and refined the taste of the cigar becomes. This is why sampling and choosing Cuban cigars is so fascinating, as there is always something new to discover.
