Starbuck using a nearby Centurion to strike a match. Lost Planet of the Gods, Part II (credit: ABC/Universal)

In the original series, the fumarello is a fairly large cigar, similar to a parejo. Typically seen near or in Starbuck's mouth, much to the dismay of the Cylons and their chest armor.

In the re-imagined series, cigars are not referred to with a special name, but it is noted that they are made of a plant product called fumarella leaf (Water). Brand names for these are Foliole and Caprican Imperial.

Starbuck enjoys a fumarello (The Man with Nine Lives).
