Backwoods are known as an all-natural cigar. They are machine-made with an aged broadleaf wrapper that gives the cigar a smooth and sweet taste. To add flavour and sweetness, Backwoods are aged, cured and stored at 70 per cent humidity. Visually, they are characterized by a frayed end, a tapered body and an unfinished head.
