Medium strength cigars offer a balanced experience halfway up the potency scale. You're definitely smoking a cigar, but you're not getting the same powerful nicotine impact of full strength smokes. You're also not getting completely let off the hook, either. Turn your back on a medium strong cigar and you'll be surprised that there's enough punch in there to get you buzzin'.
Unlike full strength cigars, these medium smokes generally don't rely as heavily on ligero leaf. Instead, they often incorporate more seco leaf. Seco is harvested from the middle height of the tobacco plant. These leaves are milder than those found higher on the stalk, and don't provide the same high smoke output.
Medium strength cigars are great as all-purpose smokes (try the Romeo y Julieta 1875 or Cohiba Red Dot, if that's what you're after). They're unlikely to overpower whatever you're pairing them with. Instead, they enhance the flavors of morning coffee, afternoon meals, or evening cocktails. Many people rely on medium strength cigars as their everyday smoke, especially those people who like to unwind with a cigar after work.
One last thing: balanced and medium isn’t code for boring. Check out the Drew Estate Acid Blondie to taste the creative possibilities.
