I have yet to try the Brazilian filler variations from LO myself. I do have them jotted down in my blend notebook, however I’ve been trying to make sure to put at bare minimum equal parts Ligero, Viso, & Seco in my blends. Both the Brazilian fillers appear to be Secos. Perhaps the Arapiraca is a Viso? I’ve been considering attempting a Brazilian Puro, but haven’t finished that blend details on it, on paper.I've a shipment finally coming today from LO: Arapirica filler (priming unspecified), Arapirica wrapper, and Cubra Seco. Anybody have experience with stuff? Can you suggest a blend?
I have always loved the Sparse Jungle ( = Mata Fina), so I thought something else from Brazil might be for me. My initial plan was to use the Arapirica wrapper as binder (it comes so cheap that I figured it can't be high grade wrap... prolly thick), use the unspecified priming for mild body and the Cubra for spice. No clear idea yet what to wrap this with. I may have a few strands of Sparse Jungle wrapper I can try.
BTW ... this may be the last time I order from LO. I just discovered they have a web site named wholeleaf.com where all the links go to LO pages. This is an obvious attempt to pirate WLT traffic. I would rather they take the trouble to provide prompt customer service rather than spend their effort stealing someone else's name.
WLT is out of stock on a lot of things. Hopefully, next shipment includes Esteli.
Have no clue why I keep ordering baccy. It's an addiction. I already have more than I could ever use or give away in this lifetime.
The Brazilian Cubra Viso wrapper though, I’ve attempted 2 blends and I personally prefer #1, but have buddies that have enjoyed #2.
W-Brazil Cubra Viso
F-1x Nic Estelí Ligero (hopefully in stock soon)
2x Nic Condega Viso
1x Nic Jalapa Seco
W-Brazil Cubra Viso
F- 2x Dom Piloto Cubano Ligero
2x Dom Criollo ‘98 Viso
(No Seco… I know… a little contradictory to my statement above)
I would be interested to hear your opinion on those LO Brazilian Fillers. [mention]webmost [/mention]
Also, that’s pretty shady for them to buy that domain and redirect to LO. Perhaps, desperate times comes adjusting business tactics? If Don was able to get some of the selections that LO has, I’d move all my business to Don. Customer service, shipping….everything in my eyes has been much better with WLT. I keep checking the websites each day myself to see when more leaf is getting restocked…hopefully soon.
