    Watch videos or you want videos lol. Yeah I'm also impatient and need to case the tobacco properly.

    Question. How do you sample the leaf for it's flavor and characteristics? Do you roll a couple from each selection and smoke it straight? Like two leaves volado and smoke it, 2 leaves seco and smoke it and so on?

    Remember to take notes on your blends. The real nightmare is when you light up a smoke and you're like "This is awesome! Let me see what I put in this one...ohhh, no notes on this one...dang..."

    Nice job!
    I sometimes get the wrinkles in the wrapper like you have. Sometimes it is from pulling the wrapper too much when wrapping and not paying attention to stretching it wide at the same time. Sometimes I think it is my wrapper is too wet and it wrinkles when it shrinks.

    Thanks for letting me know! I was wondering why that was going on. I think that was exactly my issue, i’ll remember that for the next one (y):cigar:

    Robustos, 100% Pennsylvania Red tobacco ( not so happy with the wrapper part ). These are also from my 2018 tobacco cultivation.

    A friend/Co worker has a 3d printer. I'm waiting for him to print some cigar mold I found. They're only two stick molds. I'll post pics when they're done

    One of the good Mexican San Andreas leaves.
    No cap, no mold just a good cigar.

    Amazing Vanerpaddel !
    I wish I had the time to grow my own tobacco and control the whole process.
    Next week I'll start with second fermenting binder and wrapper leave.
    I also have some filler with still a bit of raisin smell. Also these will be more fermented.
    All the better cigar factories in Central America grow now their own tobacco so they can control every step of the way.
