Once the tobacco leaves have aged properly through the curing and fermetation process, they are sorted for use as filler or wrapper. How the leaves are used - either as filler or wrapper - depends upon their appearance and overall quality. While in transition, the leaves are carefully maintained and consistently moistened. The leaf will continue to be aged, inspected, dried, reinspected, and processed again repeatedly through the aging cycle. Each manufacturer seeks something different in the leaf, and when the leaf has reached its maturity according to the manufacturer's specifications, it will be used to make the cigar.
