The Classes

023 sigaro scont

Enjoying a good cigar is an act that must be an expression of pleasure and awareness. It is with this premise that, in 2003, the "Catador" – that is “Cigar Master" – Classes were born, articulated in different thematic lectures designed to guide the listener through culture and history, the nomenclature, the analysis of the many types of crops, the tasting techniques and much more... Lessons are held by Speakers that are selected and trained by the same Association, and they are all experts of national and international level. Since 2003 the courses have been a huge success becoming a source of pride and a badge of honor for the Association.

In addition to the tried and tested, and more exhaustive formula of the Catador Course, a new experience has been added already several years ago, able to respond to the need for information that animates all the aficionados: the Basic Training Seminar! This new formula is a full immersion seminar of about three hours, aimed at offering the participants all the notions that are essential to approach the world of cigars. The speaker will lead the listeners through a path that will allow the acquisition of basic and fundamental knowledge about cigars, and at the same time a glimpse into the proper use of the beloved artifacts. The seminar does not include a final exam, but all attendants will receive a Certificate of Participation and a special Booklet. It can be organized both in presence and online, in Italian, English and Spanish.

The Catador Course is one of the flagships of the Cigar Club Association. The aim of the course is to offer, through a precise and carefully crafted path, a complete knowledge of the world of cigars. The course is structured in five thematic lessons, held over a pretty wide period of time, and conducted by qualified speakers. The course guides the participant into the in-depth analysis of the history and culture of tobacco, up to the most technical aspects of the agronomic phase, the many construction techniques of a cigar, its morphology and the specific nomenclature. In addition to theoretical lectures, a practical lesson is also scheduled, where the fundamental principles of tasting are taught, and finally a concluding lesson, during which the topics will be the legislation, the correct storage of cigars, the rules of conduct and best practices while using and enjoying cigars. There will be a cigar tasting during each lesson. At the end of the course, there's also the possibility to take an exam on the acquired knowledge and finally earn the coveted title of Catador.
