The colour (which ranges from light green to darkest brown) of a cigar can affect its taste. For example, darker wrappers indicate a concentration of sugars in the leaf and such cigars often taste sweeter; not bitter as you’d expect. Conversely, a light coloured wrapper usually offers a drier taste There are over 65 different shades of Havana cigar wrapper alone. All Havanas in a box are colour matched with the smallest tonal variances, arranged with the darkest cigar to the left and the lightest on the right, and banded by hand at exactly the same height on every cigar. Beware of any box of Havanas containing multi-coloured cigars.
