    Re: Any suggestions?

    I'm not an expert but since my short experience, I second what Bob adviced, with a slight difference : I would put the criollo in first choise and the corojo as alternative, because the first one appear to me a little softer than the second one.
    I agree totally with the choise of Honduras Habano to go with. This leaf have something magic that soften the others without loosing their caracter… it seems it even highlights the qualities and removes the rough aspects of what you blend with (I've already tried it blended with criollo, corojo, nicaragua habano and piloto cubano ; each time I had this same impression).

    I can totally agree with you on Partagas.
    Last box I ordered back in last century. 1999 I believe. wooden box no3. without bands. Also one of my favorite cigars.

    ...and I also believe that this is a right choice.
    With aging will become softer and maybe creamy.

    Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure Especial is the "King of Cream" in the current Habanos lineup... Excellent cigar.

    Re: Any suggestions?

    I'm interested in trying a few of WLT's cigar tobaccos, but I'm somewhat overwhelmed by the number of choices! I like my cigars to be strong and rich, but without excessive bite. I've never found a commercial cigar that was 'too strong' for me, but I don't appreciate a cigars that burn my tongue with spice. In the current Habanos lineup, I tend to prefer Bolivar. In non-cubans, I generally enjoy maduros.
    Can you recommend a few fillers, and a wrapper or two?
    Do I need to purchase binder leaves, or will the filler work for that?
    And do I actually need seco leaves to make the cigar burn, or can I just roll with viso and ligero?
    Thanks!

    Re: Any suggestions?

    A year ago I purchased a box of Camacho Triple Maduro cigars. They were harsh and irritated the back of my throat. A year later they have mellowed into one of my favorites. I wish I had purchased an additional box. I suspect the CCs you are smoking have aged for a long while. I suspect those "creamy" CCs would taste a lot different if they were younger.

    Ive had a scant few actual Cuban Montecristos and those were like an ice cream soda they were so creamy and smooth.
