The Classic Shape

A Parejo is the classic cigar shape, which means “flush” or “straight” in Spanish. As this suggestes, it’s straight with one rounded capped end called the head and a flat open end known as the foot. Additionally, Parejo can be almost any size.

Anything that isn’t a Parejo is simply referred to as a Figurado. This means that the shape doesn’t follow the conventional straightness and may alter in thickness at some point.
