    I heard some folk on YouTube (somewhere) mention that there is a difference between Strength and Body. Personally, I thought they were the same.
    Is there a difference? And if so, is there such a critter as a mild or medium cigar with a bold body?

    Typically strength refers to nicotine strength. Body refers to the density, or the mouth feel, of the smoke. Flavor, or profile, refers to what you're tasting. So you can have a mild bodied, full flavored cigar with medium strength; or a full strength, medium bodied, mild flavor cigar.

    yes there is a difference.
    hence different descriptors.
    you feel strength and taste body.
    now you can go and find the answer to your last question.........more fun that way.
    start with Saka's blends, or Crowned Heads.
