What to Buy a Cigar Lover!

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Cigars and cigar smokers have been around for many years. But how many people know enough about cigars to really get the best from their habit?

The Cuban Cigar

Since the 1800s, we have always heard of Cuban cigars with nothing but high praise. Anyone that started smoking cigars would automatically want “Cuban cigars” because of their reputation for their exquisite taste. Another appeal of the Cuban is the illicit appeal – the fact that due to the cigar embargo, most of them are actually illegal in the United States. Forbidden things are always more attractive, unfortunately, and it seems cigars are no exception!

With all the problems the Cuban government and tobacco industry has had to deal with through the years, the Cuban cigar industry has declined to an almost completely nonexistent state. Many avid and dedicated cigar smokers have determined that the Dominican, Honduran and Nicaraguan premium cigars have everything that the Cuban cigars do – and for less money to boot! So nowadays, there are still many places that sell Cuban cigars, but they no longer control the market so to speak, as they used to as far as taste and quality were concerned.

Cigar Humidity and Humidors

As with cigarettes, most cigar smokers have their own certain favorite brands, but will also smoke a cheaper brand for everyday if they like the taste. What many cigar smokers don’t realize is that in order for the cigar to taste its best, they do require a certain kind of maintenance. Just as perishable food will spoil if not refrigerated, so will cigars spoil if not kept in a proper container – a humidor. Many people mistakenly feel that a humidor is just a box for storage – any old box! A humidor, however, is much more than just a box, it’s to your cigar what a refrigerator is to your fresh food.

When a cigar is rolled, it is made up of many layers of tobacco leaves rolled together. If the humidity is not right, it will affect the flavor of the cigar. The importance of a humidor is that it keeps the inside of the cigar at the required environment – 70 degrees Farenheit, and 70% humidity. If the humidity starts to lessen, the outside of the cigar will dry out, but the inside will still remain damp at first. The result will be the outside layers will shrink, and the inside tobacco will swell – causing the dry outside to split open. This causes a cigar to lose its flavor. By having the proper humidity levels that a good quality humidor provides, you will get better burning speed, less heat and therefore ultimately more flavor. It is also important that the humidor be in good condition, so that it closes properly without letting air get inside.

Therefore, cheaper cigars can possibly taste as good as less well-looked after more expensive ones, if they are properly stored and taken care of. It’s a known fact that the longer cigars are kept in a properly shut humidor, the more flavor they will.

Review of Balkan Sobranie 759

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Puffing on a big bowl of this is one of the finer things in life. It provides full flavour from the moment it receives the gentle stroke of a match. This dark brown tobacco is quite rich and heavy, as is its aroma, owing to its high oriental (including latakia) content. Still, it contains enough Marlboro to have a lively flavour. The receptionist at work, who is generally anti-smoke, enjoys its smell, as it reminds her of being out in the woods with a campfire. It burns well, smokes smooth, produces a fine grey ash, and doesn’t burn the tongue. Its slight bitterness is perfectly balanced by its slight sweetness. Not only is this excellent in a briar, it is great in a clay or in a corncob.

Manufacturing of tobacco products by British American Tobacco

Monday, June 21st, 2010

“Manufacturing tobacco products is a large-scale global operation and we have factories all over the world.

Our subsidiary companies produce some 724 billion cigarettes through 50 cigarette factories in 41 countries. Five of these plus one separate plant also make either cigarillos, roll your own or pipe tobacco. We also have a factory making smokeless snus.

As well as tobacco leaf, we purchase a wide variety of other goods and services from suppliers all over the world. We promote continuous improvements amongst our suppliers in business practices, efficiency, quality, innovation and corporate responsibility.

Inside the factory

When processed tobacco leaf arrives at the factory, it is checked for quality and carefully blended with other ingredients that the brand recipe may call for, such as flavourings or expanded tobacco.

Keeping track of the various types of tobacco and blend components in use is key and computers are increasingly used to track production runs.  Moisture content is also crucial.  Too dry and the tobacco leaf will crumble; too moist and it may spoil during storage. The blended tobacco is treated with just the right amount of steam and water to make it supple and is then cut into the form used in cigarettes.  Excess moisture is then removed so the cut tobacco can be given a final blending and quality check.

The technology has advanced dramatically over the years.  Cigarette making, once done entirely by hand, is now almost fully automated, with the cut tobacco, cigarette paper and filters continuously fed into the cigarette-making machines. Quality is a top priority.  Each cigarette is automatically quality controlled to ensure that it meets every aspect of its specification.

Packing machines put them into the familiar brand packs, wrap the packs in protective film and group them into cartons and cases.  There is more testing at each stage to make sure the cigarettes are properly protected before the completed cases are ready for distribution.

Manufacturing changes

As a multinational business, we work to ensure that our costs are globally competitive and that we use our resources as effectively as possible. To improve productivity and to continue building a sustainable business, our companies have had to take some significant and difficult decisions to reduce manufacturing overcapacity by closing some factories and downsizing others.

We fully recognise the impacts of these decisions and work hard to mitigate the outcomes for employees and the wider community. These changes are also enabling us to rationalise our machine technology to establish a more cost-effective operational base for the future.  Most machinery in factories being closed or downsized is transferred elsewhere and we aim to standardise machinery at each location.

Machinery that cannot be redeployed within the Group is destroyed, not sold second hand, to ensure that it cannot fall into the hands of counterfeiters.”
