Other Wrapper Color Terminology

English Market Selection (EMS)
This terminology refers to cigars which are a light to medium brown.

Maduro
In its most limited sense, the term Maduro can simply refer to a dark or black wrapper color - these color wrappers can result from late primings or stalk-cutting broadleaf tobaccos. But, a true Maduro will have a wrapper which has undergone longer and/or more intense (higher temperature) fermentation that produces a richer, earthier, and sweeter flavor.

Natural
A term used to describe light brown to brown wrapper color.

Rosado
A Spanish term meaning "reddish", it refers to cigar wrappers that have a brown-red tint.
