    Re: Pics of your sticks!!

    My wife and I were in our old neighborhood tonight. There's a new convenience store that is advertising cigars. We ventured in, and his selection was crap. The best he had was Mehari, but he didn't sell singles, so I bought a couple little cigarillos I hadn't heard of, not because I wanted them, but, you know, just to support the guy. Well, the wife has been putting my garage door opener in a different spot in my car. Drives me nuts. She couldn't find it, and she broke my cigarillos. So I decided to take my Pergeu out of the kiln, it's been a month, and rewrap them together into one big long cigarillo.

    First puro with the Pergeu. It actually tastes like a cigar. Weird.

    OldDinosaurWesH sent me some of his Bolivia Criollo Black (aka Bolivia Criollo Dark), which he grew in 2017, and kilned. The leaf is a lovely color. The filler leaves could also have been used for wrapper--they were that nice. For a binder, I used a WLT Besuki double binder. I went crazy, and used the mold and glue (I think that's what that dust-covered little bag of beige powder was) and a triple cap. [Of course, the beautiful two-stick mold is from Rainmax, and available on WLT.]

    Since I usually roll a cigar to smoke immediately, most of the time I don't bother to create a beautiful cap, only to turn around and clip it off. So, for guest leaf, this was an exception.





    Thanks, Wes.

    Thank you both for the kind comments. Sometimes it's fun to roll a tiny cigar (i.e. a corona).
