• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Which criollo wrapper do you guys prefer and why? I have some of the regular criollo 98 and was curious about the rosado. Just wanted to know if there was a big difference in flavor.

Bump for this. I'm interested in ordering some as well. It looks like beautiful leaf.

Now, some Habano rosado would really get my interest!

Criollo 98 wrapper from WLT is quite thin and stretchy, with a lovely, subtle flavor and aroma. Nicotine is mild. I highly recommend it.

The Rosado leaf is somewhat thicker, with slightly less stretch, but greater tensile strength. It's nicotine is medium+, and should be taken into consideration when blending. It provides a somewhat rounder, fuller flavor and aroma. Cigars wrapped with this are visually stunning. I highly recommend it.

Which do I "prefer"? I can't really answer such a question. They are both delightful and excellent wrappers. They differ.

Thanks for the clarification!

On another note, where is Don's Criollo 98 filler from? My hunch is Nicaragua, since his Criollo 98 wrapper is from there. However, I just wanted to confirm.
