Why cigar burns so slowly?

Cigarette burns out in minutes while cigar, it seems like it is lit for a very long time. How??!

Well let me try to explain this using my favorite cartoon Popeye the sailor man. Think of cigars like Popeyes trademark smoking pipe: they are made to last with good quality leaves with a nice and slow burn. Cigarettes on other hand are like Blutos’ wild & reckless ways: fast & furious, but not exactly healthy.
