Towards the end of the Obama Administration, the President not only relaxed travel restrictions to Cuba but also allowed for Cuban cigars to be brought back from Cuba and other countries where Cuban goods are legal. Despite these relaxed restrictions, it was still illegal to import and sell Cuban cigars in the United States. Many in the US cigar industry saw this as a slight as it created an uneven playing field for US retailers and manufacturers that cater to the US market because there was no opportunity for retailers to import cigars or use Cuban tobacco in cigars for the US market.

In this post we’re going to go over some minor cigar myths that, while important to debunk, don’t necessarily warrant a full post by themselves.

One of the most prevalent myths surrounding cigars is the darker the wrapper, the stronger the cigar. While you can determine a few things from the color of wrapper tobacco, strength is not one of them. Before we get into debunking this myth though, we have a few things to go over because there is a little more surrounding this myth than just the darkness of wrapper tobacco.
