Although filtered cigars are frequently mistaken for cigarettes, they aren’t meant to be inhaled like cigarettes, but instead should be smoked much like premium cigars. Each of these smokes is equipped with a filter that enhances smoothness, while protecting your lips from excessive discoloration, while still providing a smoke that’s similar in quality to that of traditional cigars. Filtered cigars are made with high-quality tobaccos which are usually aged and fermented, resulting in a stronger smoke and lasting longer than your average cigarette. They're sold in packs, similar to cigarettes, and have a similar filter and wrapper, so you can see why it’s easy to confuse the two. Unlike traditional cigars, which require a luxurious and laid-back manner, the tinier filtered cigars are meant for those times when you're on the go.
Available in a wide variety of unique flavors, including vanilla, peach, strawberry, menthol, watermelon and more, filtered cigars definitely have an edge over traditional cigars when it comes to flavor infusions. These cigars not only taste great, but also offer tantalizing aromas. Filtered cigars are usually machine-made with short fillers. Some of the popular brands that make filtered cigars are Prime Time, King Edward, Cheyenne, Phillies Filters, Djarum and Wrangler, among others. Pair these mild and aromatic smokes with a coffee in the morning or a light alcoholic drink in the evening.
