    I have lovingly cured and kilned and stored many a trashy leaf...and I've smoked a lot of them. Now, I look at a questionable leaf with the criterion of how it will strike me when I'm selecting finished leaf for a cigar. If I would sigh, and mumble, "It's a shame to just throw it away," then I won't even bring it in from the field.

    Since I'll be stalk-harvesting a number of my cigar varieties, this item on the JR Cigars website caught my attention:

    Full bodied in strength, the smoke delivers satisfying notes of dark chocolate, coffee bean, leather, and spice.

    This is as detailed a cigar recipe as you'll find anywhere from a commercial cigar manufacturer. I know that CT Broadleaf is usually stalk-harvested. Unfortunately, the description does not mention what other component, if anything else, might also be stalk-harvested.

    But still, the recipe is
    • Wrapper: CT Broadleaf
    • Binder: Piloto Cubano
    • Filler:
      Piloto Cubano

    I won't grow any more CT Broadleaf, since it always manages to get Blue Mold here when I grow it. But the rest of the recipe sounds like something I can do. Of the listed filler components, I'll be stalk-harvesting my Criollo (Cuba).
