What is “Fuerte?”

Q. “Fuerte.” Does this describe strength of cigar?
– Damon P.

A. Yes, it does – in a way. Fuerte means “strong” in Spanish. However, when it comes to cigars, “strong” is a very subjective word. Fuerte in this sense, means “full-bodied.” The Griffin’s Fuerte, Indian Tabac Super Fuerte, and Fonseca Serie F, for example, are all full-bodied, but not strong in the overpowering or especially spicy sense.
