Full cigars appeal to the more experienced smoker. These cigars have a wide range of complex, full flavors and full body strength that is best enjoyed after a meal and not recommended for novice smokers. Full bodied cigars often have rich, dark wrappers and fillers while others have hefty ring gauges. Popular full bodied cigar brands include Liga Privada, Aging Room and Cohiba.Read more
If you don’t know the definition of a full cigar, it’s only because you’ve never had one. Full cigars are well able to introduce themselves and even give you a little history.
Okay, what is a full cigar? Well, cigars are usually categorized into mild, medium, and full. This categorization depends on many factors including flavor, body, strength, impact on the palate, aroma, and finish.
But when all is said and done, it’s the intensity of nicotine that draws the final lines. So, a mild cigar will have very little nicotine effect, a medium cigar will have some effect but not overwhelmingly so while a full cigar will go all the way up.
A full cigar is a cigar aficionado’s territory. Beginners are advised to steer clear of full cigars until their palates and endurance develops. Full cigars are intense in both flavor and strength. A good full-bodied cigar is the best way to end a long day alongside a well-selected accompaniment.
However, even for cigar connoisseurs, a full cigar on an empty stomach is a bad idea. If you want to truly enjoy your nicotine buffet, let it be after a meal.
At Gotham Cigars, we carry a beautiful selection of incredible full-bodied smokes.
