    Chopped Filler Cigar



    This free-hand stogie began with a binder of BigBonner Corojo 99. I used a full half-leaf, and also cut the second half into two sections, laid onto the first binder so that the filler would begin on a mat of binder the full-length of the cigar. A few long scraps were used to form a trench into which a generous handful of short filler (a bit larger than my pipe shred) was distributed. So the full length of the cigar begins rolling at once. In free-rolling a short filler cigar, I strive to create a tapered and fairly tight head, so bits don't fall out while smoking. Since the short filler is kept in low case, I compress it as tightly as possible. Although I trimmed the back edge of the Rosado wrapper just enough to remove the hefty vein ends, the wrapper strip was wider than usual, so that it could add even more compression. A compressing cap was also added at the head.

    Since my gallon bag of short scrap is a mix of just about everything that I ever put into filler, it always makes a delightful, richly flavored blend, with no more strength than my average cigar. The draw is flawless, and the burn, of course, is excellent.

    Thank you. They do suggest that once I've planted myself in a chair, I have no intention of getting up soon.
