Hey guys,

I'm looking for help with a medium strength cigar blend and ratios. These are the leaves I'm considering. I'm set on the Wrapper, but I'm open to suggestions for the binder and filler:

Wrapper:
Honduran Conerico Seco
Ecuadorian Candela (small stripes must for aesthetics)

Binder:
Ecuadorian Seco

Filler:
Aged Dominican Seco
Aged Nicaraguan Ligero

Thanks.

Disclaimer: Everyone's definition of strong / medium / mild is different due to individual tastes. That said, this is how I start a new blend.

Mild cigars - 2 to 3 parts seco, 1 part Ligero
Medium - Equal parts seco / ligero
Strong - 3 parts ligero, 2 parts seco.

Also, every leaf is different, so in the end you really just have to pick a starting point and start experimenting. Have fun!
