Q & A: Wrapper/Binder Tobacco Leaf

Q.
What is the difference between wrapper and binder tobacco?

3/21/16 | by SR of Reno, NV

A.
Simplified, the difference is solely in appearance. Wrapper tobacco is specially fermented, specifically a slower fermentation process than leaf used for the filler. This ensures even coloration, which is further supported by a rigorous selection practice. Wrapper tobacco that doesn’t pass the aesthetic requirements is often used as binder, the cigar’s structural backbone. While essential characteristics for binder leaf include thickness and strength, the most important quality, as with all cigar tobacco, will be the flavor, aroma, and burn quality.

Review: The Griffin's Nicaragua

Dave A More Powerful Creature

I’ve always been a fan of The Griffin’s. When you’re in the mood for a reliable morning or mid-day mellow cigar, they never let you down. So when I heard that Davidoff was releasing The Griffin’s Nicaragua, I knew I had to try one. True to Nicaraguan form, it is a complete departure from the original Connecticut offering. In fact, the only thing they have in common was the superior construction. The Griffin’s Nicaraguan packs quite a punch right from the start, especially the Short Torpedo size. Wasting no time, you are immediately hit with a bold spice up front along with notes of chocolate, leather, and cedar in the background. I did detect a slight bitterness on the tongue on the finish towards the end of the cigar but nothing that made the cigar any less enjoyable. This is a well-blended, medium to full-bodied cigar that brings The Griffin’s brand into a whole new realm for fans of full-bodied, Nicaraguan tobacco. And despite all its boldness, a hint of that signature Dominican tobacco in the filler still lingers.
