Our focus is on matching cigars to personal aromas and tastes preferences. We are not aiming to provide a search engine based on pure biographical cigar data. Therefore, the detailed wrapper color classifications (eg claro, colorado claro, etc) coming from our analyses are aggregated to offer a high-level grouping of colors.

When setting up your Cigar Sense profile, you are only asked if you have preference for “natural” or “dark” wrappers. Dark wrappers typically relate to maduro’s or oscuro’s. Given the many processes used to get to a result that is marketed as maduro/oscuro, we have opted this simpler selection for you to indicate your wrapper preference.

All of this is meant to simplify the user profile definition and the search in our database.
