TobaccoOne of the main differences between filtered cigars and cigarettes is the tobacco used. The tobacco in a filtered cigar is usually aged and allowed to ferment. Additionally, cigar tobacco is usually from only a single source. This creates a filtered cigar with a smooth and rich flavor. Fermenting is not part of the process for creating cigarette tobacco. The tobacco in cigarettes is processed quickly. It can contain extra additives. This creates a cigarette with a harsh and sharp flavor.
Flavor Selection of Filtered CigarsFilter cigars come in a wide selection of different flavors and grades. Some cigars are available in a variety of pleasant flavors such as vanilla, black cherry or chocolate. The flavors accent the natural taste of the aged tobacco. Some producers of filtered cigars even offer different strengths of tobacco so that a person can choose the intensity of the flavor. Cigarettes do not come in different flavors beyond normal or menthol. This is because there is a legal ban on flavored cigarettes.
Size, Weight and Appearance of Filtered CigarsThere are a number of physical differences between filtered cigars and cigarettes. The most noticeable is that filtered cigars are heavier than cigarettes. This is partly because of the weight of the tobacco. Filtered cigars are larger and can be much longer than a typical cigarette. Filtered cigars are easily differentiated from cigarettes because the paper used to contain the tobacco is different. Most filtered cigars are wrapped in paper that is brown, very dark or tinted. This is different from the stark white paper used to wrap a standard cigarette. The filter on certain filtered cigars might also be longer than the filter on a normal cigarette.
Taxes of Filtered cigarsOne final difference that is important to some people is how the two products are taxed. Cigarettes are highly taxed across many different levels. There are federal and local taxes in most areas. Filtered cigars are not taxed in the same way largely because of how the tobacco is treated. The lower taxation often means filtered cigars are less expensive than purchasing cigarettes.
