Cigar Taste Rating Scale
Cigar Taste Rating Scale


Cigars are of a personal nature, a direct relationship between the "cigar" and the individual. Every cigar is an individual experience; each of us searches for our Perfect Blend. 

Our "Cigar Taste Rating Scale" is to give you an approximate guide as to the taste of the cigar related to it's "body" or "strength". Different cigars have different blends of tobaccos which give them different levels of body such as "Light", "Medium" and "Full". 

A full-bodied cigar isn't strong or harsh, but a "heavy" smoke may be tough for a beginner to handle until they get used to cigars. Full-bodied cigars are usually aged longer and have a higher tar and nicotine level which many people need to work up to. In general, we recommend that beginners start with mild to medium bodied cigars first. Some beginner smokers appreciate full bodied cigars from the start, but this is usually the exception to the rule.
