What is a gacia vega cigar?

A garcia vega cigar is a stimulant for smokers, usually made from a mixture of tobacco varieties from countries such as Brazil, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Java and Sumatra. garcia vega cigaris derived from the Spanish for  turning : “girar”. Another reading is that it would be a Maya word, namely  sikar.

 garcia vega ciga vs. cigarette

There are differences between garcia vega cigar and cigarette smoking, in the sense that a garcia vega cigar takes much more time (they usually last for at least 45 minutes), but also that it smoke is not intended to be inhaled. Where cigarettes are therefore particularly harmful to the lungs, cigars act on the throat. In addition, it generally serves not so much to satisfy nicotine hunger – although this undoubtedly plays a role – but aims to separate a specific taste in the mouth, making different cigars different from each other in a more pronounced way than in cigarettes. Another big difference is the temperature of a cigar, which is considerably higher than a cigarette.

Short Filler

Cigars can be divided into two types: Long Fillers and Short Fillers (and a small part of Medium Fillers). Almost all types are made up of interior material, the cover and the cover sheet. The interior of a Long Filler consists of rolled up tobacco leaves from which the main vein has been removed (so-called frog-legs), in contrast to Short Fillers: the interior of these cigars consists of short pieces of (cut-up) tobacco, often from different regions.

Long Fillers must be well preserved (in a so-called humidor), between 68-72% humidity. The temperature is less relevant. When the percentage falls below 60%, the Long Filler becomes dry, breaks easily, burns too quickly and tastes too sharp. At percentages higher than 72%, the garcia vega cigar burns more difficultly, but the taste is fuller. At percentages higher than 80%, the fungus starts on the cigars (not to be confused with flour).

Short fillers are usually made in countries where tobacco does not grow, but is only skipped (in the port). Consider brands such as Ritmeester, Hajenius, Olifant, and the like. Exceptions to this are cigars from, for example, Brazil and Indonesia (here the tobacco is grown and the garcia vega cigar produced). Short Fillers should not be kept moist (although often claimed differently), often do not need to be cut and have a different taste than Long Fillers. A short-filler is best served by a humidity of around 65%.
