I’ve been making cigars for about a year, from tobacco I grew. I am NO cigar expert although I’m getting better at my rolling. Last night I smoked a well known cigar (under $10). I’m surprised to find not only 4 leaves for binder / wrapper, but the filler tobacco is very sticky, like it has been cased, like pipe tobacco. My ligero has been cured and fermented, and although is darker than seco or volado, it’s not sticky. Further, I have tobacco laying around, 8598A642-AFDD-410A-AB69-E9B9C83BF593.jpegand the fill from this cigar is not the same humidity as what I have. IS IT possible, some of these cigars have a PG added to the filler? Just an observation.

In some cases along with other things used for that same result. however, that Perdomo you have there is not one of them.
