Cameroon Wrapper Cigars

The word Cameroon among cigar enthusiasts refers to cigars adorned with a tobacco wrapper grown in the central African nations of Cameroon and the Central African Republic. They are produced from Sumatra-seed tobaccos introduced to the local farmers by Dutch colonists in the early 1900s. The tobacco is sun-grown, unlike other top-quality wrappers like Cuban and Connecticut grown underneath tapados. The Central African climate is less variable than these areas. The tropical environment features clouds which act as a natural sun-ray filter for this tobacco. This produces a uniform texture and color to the leaves. Central Africa has some of the best dark brown wrappers outside of Cuba.

African Cameroon wrappers are the toothiest of all tobacco wrapper variants. Tooths are pockets of oil that are formed on some types of tobacco. They resemble little goosebumps on the leaf and harbor flavors that cigar enthusiasts consider desirable. Cameroon wrappers are also known for their delicacy, especially compared to San Andrés or Ecuador Habano. These wrappers produce large amounts of flavor without excessive levels of intensity. Tasting notes of cinnamon, cedar, baking sodas, and nuts are characteristic of these wrappers. There is also an accompanying balance of sweetness and pepper. Cameroon wrappers adorn many premium hand-rolled cigars. La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet, H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon, and NUB Cameroon are some cigars blended with a Cameroon wrapper leaf.
