Unlock the Uniqueness of Partagas Culebras Cigars
At Surrey Cigars, we invite you to embark on a cigar journey like no other with our Partagas Culebras Cigars. These intriguing cigars, known as the "snakes" due to their intertwined nature, offer a truly distinctive smoking experience. Whether you're a seasoned aficionado or a curious explorer of the cigar world, the Culebras cigars will captivate your senses.
What Are Culebra Cigars?
A Culebra cigar, derived from the Spanish word for 'snake,' is not a single cigar but a captivating trio of cigars braided together and bound by tradition. These cigars typically measure 5 to 6 inches long with a slender 38-ring gauge. The Culebras are more than just cigars; they are a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of tobacco blending.
Unraveling the Mystery of Origin
The origin of Culebras cigars carries a touch of intrigue and legend. One common tale suggests that these distinctive cigars were crafted to prevent cigar factory workers from exceeding their daily allocation of three cigars. Smoking a straight cigar would expose them as pilferers. Another theory traces the Culebras' beginnings to the Philippines in the 19th century, where intertwining thinner cigars was believed to expedite maturation.
While the exact origin remains shrouded in mystery, the allure of Culebras cigars lies in their unique form and rich history.
Crafting Culebra Cigars
Creating Culebra cigars demands a delicate hand and an intricate process. These cigars are intentionally smaller than standard varieties, resembling Panatelas with a 38-ring gauge. They are initially rolled with a slight underfill to reduce their size and are carefully moistened to prevent the wrapper from splitting during the braiding process.
The three cigars are artfully intertwined and secured with ribbons at both ends. Over time, as they age together, the extra moisture evaporates, and the cigars maintain their intriguing twisted shape, even when unbraided for smoking.
Savouring the Culebra Experience
While the temptation to smoke all three Culebras cigars at once may arise, we recommend savouring them individually. Start by gently removing the ribbons from both ends and carefully separate the cigars. Then, select one Panatela to enjoy while keeping the others safely stored in a humidor.
For special occasions, consider sharing the Culebras experience with friends by separating all three and indulging in a unique and social smoking adventure.
