• 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.

Whole Leaf Tobacco

Pics of your sticks!!

Your first question may be, "Why?"

In a moment of both laziness and haste, I reached into my gallon Ziplock bag filled with long cigar scraps, grabbed a fistful, tore the wad of scrap to a modest length, then wrapped it (no binder) in a scrap of Habano 2000--the arc trimmed from the heavy-veined, back edge of a wrapper. No book. No entubado. No nothing. Just a wad of scrap oriented in the same direction.

There you have it. No brain cells were disturbed in the planning of this cigar.

The surprise is that it lit easily, burns well and draws beautifully. The random blend is balanced and enjoyable.

You have to admit that it's a fun thing to look at.

Bob

101_0016.jpg Here is my first attempt in about a year of laziness.

Looks don't mean much too me. Taste and quality of burn matters more. this one fell short on burn.
