The inside (the “filler”) of a mechanically manufactured cigar is made up of various threshed tobaccos. The filler is mauled into a cigar shape and enveloped using a binder. This half product, called a “bunch” is then over rolled with a wrapper to make a finished cigar. Both binder and wrapper may be natural tobacco, or reconstituted tobacco. The latter is used by our customers to manufacture cigars in a very efficient automated process. The HTL-DHT wrapper can be produced from either the customer’s by products, or from specifically sourced tobaccos. Due to the gentle nature of the processes of HTL-DHT much of the original taste of the tobaccos is retained.
The wrapper products available from HTL-DHT are geared for all automated cigar manufacturing machines in the market. The HTL-DHT wrapper is characterized by its homogenous appearance, color and surface structure. The color can be fine-tuned to each customer’s requirement, ranging from a dark black to a very bright tobacco yellow.
