the same can be said about cigars. We put
together a great sampler to explore the different
shades of wrappers to entice your palate.
So stay tuned to the end of this video to
see how you can take advantage of our special
offer. This is Neil and Gerard from Mardo
cigars and we are excited to share our experience
with you. So now we’re going to talk about
the five most common wrapper types in the
industry. I’m turning it over to Gerard to
go through our wonderful sampler for you.
Let’s do it. All right. Number one on our
list is going to be the Illusione 88 Candela,
known to be as one of the best candela cigars
on the market. So at candela wrapper is flashed
cured under charcoal fire or candlelight,
and that is why it gets a Spanish name candela.
So this is going to be a soft mild cigar and
it’s going to be included in our pack. Look
for it and enjoy it. Next up on the list is
a Connecticut shade wrapper cigar, also known
as a Claro wrapper, hence the name of this
cigar is Cubo Claro and it is made by Dapper.
Now these are grown under shaded tents, which
reduces sunlight and it protects it from some
different kind of weather conditions. Then
it gives it that tan, brownish color as well.
This is going to give you that light sweet
hints of cedar. So Cubo Claro definitely gives
that off within the smoke. I love it. It’s
a very good size. So-
It’s one of my favorites for sure.
This is his favorite, for reals. Anyway, Cubo
Claro from Dapper. Look for it in the pack
as well. Okay, third on our list is a world-renowned
brand Ashton VSG. VSG stands for Virgin sun
grown. So this has a sun grown wrapper. These
wrappers are grown under direct sunlight and
they’re not cultivated until it reaches its
own maturity naturally. So this is also known
as a natural wrapper. It’s not too dark, not
too light. So look for it. VSG, Virgin sun
grown, we’ll have that sun grown wrapper under
Ashton brand. Fourth on the list is a Maduro
wrapped cigar, which is probably the most
popular wrapper on a cigar, Maduro meaning
mature in Spanish, and these Maduro leaves
are going to be found on the highest level
of a plant.
It’s going to be thicker in nature. The reason
being, it has to withstand the pressure in
the chamber when you’re curing and fermenting
these leaves, which takes many, many years.
It’s going to be very oily, very strong, and
it’s going to have the highest level of nicotine.
So this cigar is Tabernacle. It’s a Connecticut
broadleaf Maduro. Look for it and the pack
Okay, last on our list is going to be the
Oscuro wrapper. Just like the Maduro, these
leaves are the highest level of the plant.
However, they’re left on the plant at a much
longer time, resulting in a darker, oilier
wrapper, and it can withstand a much more
intense curing process and fermentation lasting
years of it. Since the process is so enduring,
it’s very rare to find. So it results in a
very dark, pronounced flavors. An Oscuro wrapper
is always going to be a lot darker, almost
black, and a deeper color than a Maduro. So
this is La Flor Dominicana Ligero. It is the
Oscuro Cabinet L-500, which is like an extra
boost of size, which is also available in
the pack. So we have put together a pack that
has five different shades I had mentioned
and here we are. So what we’ve done for you
