    Looks great Blake. Is that color as is, or further color curing?

    As is, but that's fresh rolled. I can reshoot in a couple days. Humidity's been low so I had to mist it a few times during the roll.

    I would agree with you if the product was described as " Brazil mata fina" for instance, not " brazil mata fina binder" or Brazil mata fina wrapper" But in fact they indicate filler, binder and wrapper, at different price points, which suggests a certain level of grading has taken place, not merely pulling a pound of leaf from the bale at random.

    Alright. My point was to say get to know the leaf. This mata fina wrapper was not described as such.

    Wrappers can make or break any cigar and while I tried to roll some of my own years ago it became a descent into hell trying to roll my own so I just continue to purchase cigars. If I had the patience I'd do it but I'm an impatient man at best so I leave this expertise to the expert torcedors who I have great respect for. I tend to love maduro and brazilian wrappers/tobacco but not limited to just those...there are some great tobaccos that are just like desserts for me and add libations and life doesn't get much better.

    The folks that do the initial "grading" work for peanuts essentially and are going through pounds and pounds of leaf at a high speed. When we get the leaf we have the time to really inspect and further break it down and find things they missed
