history and origin of tobacco

cigars

Indian smoking a pipe Although tobacco was known in South America over 3,000 years ago, it took a long time until today known cigar developed therefrom. The medicine men and shamans of many peoples of South America, took advantage of the tobacco then to pass through its enjoyment in contact with the gods to carry the sick to heal and special rites. To do this, shredded tobacco and gave him in simple pipes to smoke him afterwards.

The North American Indians, for example, even had a "peace pipe", which was only ever fired when warring tribes reconciled. The highlight and solemn ritual then was the "peace pipe" smoked. These Form of tobacco use would probably be a long time as gone on, would not be Christopher Columbus arrived in the New World.

Christopher Columbus saw the natives smoking screwed tobacco leaves, from these precursors, developed over the centuries then, today's cigars.

The emergence of the first cigar factories

By Christopher Columbus and other seafarers came the "smoke drink", ie the use of tobacco, to Europe and spread in the 18th century, from Spain, from all over Europe. During this time, then came the first cigar factories, as people from smoking pleasure found and did not want him to enjoy only in pipes form.

Today is a prime tobacco for cigars in the Dominican Republic , Nicaragua and Honduras cultivated, But for many aficionados of tobacco apply from Cuba as the best in the world.

Cuba the land of the best cigars

In Cuba optimum conditions to grow the best tobacco. This is the perfect climate, the soil, the seeds and the great experience in the fermentation and production of cigars. Nevertheless, that does not automatically mean that a Glimmstengel the Cuban taste the same.

That is, as always with stimulants, a matter of taste, but you have to acknowledge without envy that the Havana and Habanos, as this are also referred to, are among the top-tobacco products. But it is a myth that the Havana are always very strong. Here too Of course there is mild representatives, which are perfect for beginners.

The tobacco leaves a cigar

A cigar is divided into three components:
  • the wrapper
    The wrapper is the most expensive tobacco leaf of a cigar, because the cultivation of this is very complicated. This tobacco is almost always grown below fabric, so that the sun can not shine directly on the leaves and is called "Tabaco Tapado". Only in this way the leaves form of very fine wires, remain very thin and supple. Finally, the cover page is the face of the cigar and is supposed to be flawless.
  • The binder
    The binder is wound on the liner, thereby holding together these and gives her the form. In addition, this journal is for the burn dzuständig. After the binder is applied, the so-called. Wrap or doll is excited still for about 30 minutes in a press Tock, to bring it in a uniform shape.
  • the filler
    The filler consists in long filler cigars from three whole tobacco leaves, which come from the different regions of the plant. The uppermost leaves are called Ligero. These sheets obtain from most sun, and so have most seasoning and strength. The leaves in the middle part are called Seco and are fragrant and medium-bodied. The lower leaves (Seco) are the mildest and give structure to the blend.

    In Shortfiller the filler is made of torn or shredded tobacco. Here, more than three different tobaccos may be used.

cultivation and production of cigars

The drying tobacco

drying the cigar tobacco in the dry house in Cuba
After the tobacco has been harvested, it is dried. This happens in the so-called. Dry houses directly on the tobacco plantations. The fresh Tobacco leaves are tied together in pairs and attached to poles. The drier the leaves are, the higher they are placed in a drying house.

When drying the tobacco loses moisture and slowly gets its golden brown color.

The fermentation of tobacco

After drying, the tobacco is fermented. The fermentation is a fermentation process, mined at the nicotine acid and tar and flavor is formed. Bracts are fermented only once, because they are very thin. Outer leaves or leaves on the deposit are fermented up to three times.

The rolling of cigars

The rolling of Cigar
(1.) The cigar rollers, also called Torcedor, taking three leaves and folds it like an accordion together.

(2.) He then rolled the binder to the insert sheets. This is called "winding". The wrap is applied for about 30 minutes in a press floor, so that it retains its shape.

(3.) Following is the cover designed so it has nice, clean edges.

(4.) Now the rolls Torcedor the cover sheet on the roll. This must be done very carefully and, with the most difficult during rolling.

(5. and 6.) Now is a drop-shaped piece of the remaining cover sheet - the flag - cut out and attached to the mouthpiece of the cigar.

(7.) Now is cut with a circular knife is a circle from the remaining cover sheet and glued to the end of the mouthpiece. After that the cigar is still cut to the correct length, and finished the cigar.

As a last step, the cigar will be cut to the appropriate length of the rolled format. That sounds very simple, but it is not. A scooter must practice intensely for at least 12 months before he can roll simple formats. In Cuba, the Torcedores or scooter start in category 7 - the lowest level and if you can roll all formats perfectly, then change the Category 9 - the highest in Cuba - on. Only about 5% of the scooter in Cuba, make it into this category rise.

Handmade pleasure and relaxation

The classic cigar smoker is a sensualist who only smokes a cigar, if the situation is right. The cigar smoke is not inhaled and, finally sit the taste buds on the tongue and so not in the lungs. This is also a big difference to Zigarretterauchen. For Cigars one needs time and rest and just at the present time that is often lacking. A fine cigar forces you down a gear switch and to focus only the use of tobacco.

The real luxury is often not the cigar itself, but the time you take it. It is extremely relaxing, if you can focus for 45 minutes only to smoking a cigar. It pauses for a moment and let the day or the week reminisce, revels in sweet memories or converses in good company.

Zino Davidoff once done across an aphorism on smoking. I can only fully agree and I too say: "smoke less, but better!".
