Oh dear. This sounds too familiar. My verdict is...Delaware humidity. Seriously, I found my WLT Peru seco and ligero to burn quite well. The answer (other than moving to a less cigar-hostile climate) is to blend with something you identify as better burning.
It is true that different batches and different varieties exhibit differences in how hygroscopic they are. But if the smoking environment is too humid, a cigar will light, then just kind of peter out.
1) ROTT as always, cause I've been working toward a blendGood info @webmost ! I just rolled up some of the same leaf yesterday. A couple things I just thought:
1. Are you smoking them fresh rolled?
2. What other types of leaves have you tried “throwing in the sauce” pan in addition to the Peru Seco?
3. How much leaf are you rolling in 1? Both sides of leaf or 1 side at a time? (Im assuming your rolling “entubado”)
4. Perhaps stack on top of another type of leaf, perhaps drier and roll together entubado?
1. Perhaps letting it sit a day or two may help? (Dry box)1) ROTT as always, cause I've been working toward a blend
2) T-13 viso, Pelo de Oro viso, Ecuadorian viso, Criollo viso, & I dunno what (not all the same time, of course; but at diff times)
3) I don't get this Q. Course I use bode sides.
4) I don't think this Peru is overly damp.
This?Has this still been an issue for anyone?
I had similar issues. used a full butane lighter on a few cigars ranging from one straight from a week in the dry box, one a month in a 62% humidor and one 2 months in a 65% humidor. Some others burned perfect. I kept at it because they were delicious! but burn issues some did have...
