THIN VS THICK CIGARS
The key difference between thinner and thicker cigars is the ratio of the wrapper leaf in comparison to the binder and filler. Many cigar experts believe that the wrapper contributes about 60-80% of the overall flavour of the cigar, which is quite a hefty contribution to the smoking experience. Within a thicker cigar, there is less wrapper to smoke and more binder and filler - making the taste of the wrapper a bit washed out. Furthermore, when it comes to thinner cigars, they burn a lot quicker, making it the perfect cigar to smoke for short occasions.
