  • How are Cigars Different from Cigarettes? A cigar is defined, for tax purposes, as 'any roll of tobacco wrapped in leaf tobacco or in any substance containing tobacco, ' while a cigarette is 'any roll of tobacco wrapped in paper or any substance not containing tobacco.' Most cigars are made up of a single air-cured or dried burley tobacco

  • These differences are due to the long aging and fermentation process used for cigar tobacco and to the fact that the cigar wrapper is not as porous as cigarette paper

  • Also, because the cigar wrapper is less porous than cigarette paper, the tobacco doesn't burn as completely

  • And that tobacco column is then wrapped with a cigarette wrapper paper in order to contain it and hold it in place

  • The cigarette wrapper paper itself has certain characteristics that are involved in the operation of the cigarette, primarily certain additives that are put in the paper, and the paper porosity, how porous it is in terms of its ability to allow gases to exchange across its surface

  • The filter plug, or the cellulose acetate material, has been itself contained in what's called the tipping paper, which is yet another kind of paper that surrounds it and holds it in place, and also to help hold the filter material together, these fibrous strands, there is a plasticizer generally that's added to the filter material as well

  • Now the filter has to be joined to the tobacco column and cigarette wrapper, and that's done by using what's called a -- a tipping paper, and the tipping paper is typically the brown or cork-like paper that you see on the end of a cigarette, and it covers not only the filter plug and its plug wrap, but it overlaps the tobacco column and cigarette paper a small distance so that it can be glued on
