Ever wonder how they do that…Make a cigar that is. One of the unique challenges of visiting an operation as large as General Cigar is how to begin to describe the sheer magnitude of work that goes into that fine little vitola that rests in your hand. There are a lot of steps to be sure and we would love to show them all, but for today’s post we are going to show you how a cigar’s wrapper is rolled after the binder/filler process. You will also see how the elegant and eye catching La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Obelisco is rolled. But before that we show you a picture of the mold the Obelisco resides in after bunching to give it its patterned obelisk shape for rolling:
The following video is a brief video displaying the General Cigar way of rolling a cigar and of course the Obeliso rolling footage. Enjoy!
