Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between hand rolled and machine made cigars?

Handmade Cigars - The entire cigar is bunched, rolled and trimmed by individual hand labor. It can be one person working alone on a single cigar, or the work can be divided between a buncher and a roller working on the same cigar. The main criterion is that the entire cigar is completely made by hand from start to finish. Handmade cigars are viewed as premier cigars. Most premium priced cigars are hand made. Machine-made Cigars - The filler, binder and wrapper are completely assembled by machine. These are quality cigars with exceptional aroma and flavor. But unlike handmade cigars, the price can be a lot less. Machine Bunched/Hand Rolled Cigars- The filler is bunched by machine and then the filler/binder combination is turned over to a cigar roller, who puts the wrapper on by hand. This technique is often simply referred to as machine bunched. These are the best of both worlds and priced accordingly.
