It's hard to tell by my phone camera, but the right is darker. I thought the Hab 2000 would be much darker. The T-13 leaf is HUGE!!! I just threw some stuff together that sounded like it might be good together. Smoked #1 last night after a little rest and drying out. I liked the mix. I am about to have my afternoon smoke with #2. Hope it's as good or better than #1. I'm still working on the flag and cap... lol. -Rex
Bliss sent me some superb Habano shade wrapper. I rolled a quickie plump perfecto with it just now. Honduran guts, half Hond viso & half seco, with a soupcon of Dom T-13, Dominican bound, wrapped in this new-to-me shade grown Habano that he sent.
Because this is just a testfecto, that means I won't give it time to dry & age. So I can't say what the eventual color will look like. But I feel sure that this wrap will shrink tight and shine, given time to.
Studying Laravel just now. Soon as my brain gets scrambled, I'll take this outside on the smoking porch to chill & try it out.
Here's a pair of all piloto cubano filled cigars. Wrapped in Ecuadorian seco.
I've been enjoying the all piloto smoke lately. Everytime I add something to it I just think "maybe add something else next time" so this time I added nada. Even the binder is piloto seco.
Turned out pretty good. Needed more time but waited as long as I could. We end wanting to try it since I rolled them. I have more waiting. Rolled 6 total. Wrapped 2 with this wrapper then 2 other wrappers. I think the bunch is over powering the Ecuadorian wrapper.
