Anatomy of a Habano


Cigar structure

Filler

tripasThree types of leaf are blended to form the filler, or tripa, source of the rich flavours and aromas that immediately distinguish a Habano from the rest.

Volado: Light-flavoured leaf, especially valued for its combustibility - also known as Fortaleza 1 (Strength 1).

Seco: Medium-flavoured, the most important leaf for aroma - Fortaleza 2 (Strength 2).

Ligero: Full-flavoured, slow-burning for a touch of strength - Fortaleza 3 (Strength 3).

Wrapper

The wrapper, or capa, is the exquisitely thin and supple leaf that forms the outer surface of the cigar.
