Etymology[edit]

From Spanish cigarro, of uncertain origin; perhaps from cigarra (cicada) or from a Mayan language, see siyar (to smoke tobacco leaves).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

cigar (plural cigars)

  1. Tobacco, rolled and wrapped with an outer covering of tobacco leaves, intended to be smoked.
    • 1907, Robert W. Chambers, The Younger Set, Ch.III:
      Long after his cigar burnt bitter, he sat with eyes fixed on the blaze. When the flames at last began to flicker and subside, his lids fluttered, then drooped ; but he had lost all reckoning of time when he opened them again to find Miss Erroll in furs and ball-gown kneeling on the hearth [].
    • 1963, Margery Allingham, chapter 5, The China Governess:
      A waiter brought his aperitif, which was a small scotch and soda, and as he sipped it gratefully he sighed. ¶ ‘Civilized,’ he said to Mr. Campion. ‘Humanizing.’ […] ‘Cigars and summer days and women in big hats with swansdown face-powder, that's what it reminds me of.’
