    Re: Pics of your sticks!!



    Not really an "Arturo" anything, but close to the smooth, rich, medium strength maduro cigars from Fuente. After guessing at a Fuente Reserva Maduro blend (for a new forum member), I decided to cook one up. I didn't have all the ingredients I wanted. I was lacking any Cibao Valley seco leaf. Since Cibao Valley Criollo 98 ligero is the very mildest of the ligero leaf from that region, I hunted for the lightest color leaf of that.

    Wrapper: WLT Ecuador Maduro Wrapper
    Binder: WLT Dominican Binder (single)
    Filler:
    • WLT Cibao Valley Criollo 98 ligero (lighter color)
    • WLT Cibao Valley Vuelta Abajo ligero
    • WLT Cibao Valley Corojo 99 viso

    It turns out to be exactly 1.2 notches stronger than my target. I missed it by that much.

    Love the name!

    About how many leaves of each variety did you use for that?

    That was way back an hour ago. I'm not sure if I remember.

    I believe it was
    WLT Cibao Valley Criollo 98 ligero (lighter color): 2 or 3 leaves
    WLT Cibao Valley Vuelta Abajo ligero: 1 leaf
    WLT Cibao Valley Corojo 99 viso: 1 leaf

    The Olor (Dominican Binder) adds a distinct and rich flavor that is not present in the filler selection, but only a half leaf, that is, just a single binder, is plenty. A whole leaf is too potent. Although the blend is stronger than I had hoped, I can enjoyably smoke the entire stick--unlike many dark, commercial blends, which make my head spin.

    HA! I know the feeling.

    Sounds like I need to snag some of the Cibao Valley leaf ... quite popular around here!
