Webmost sent a gift in the mail and requested that I post pictures at the minimum. I believe you all may have noticed that I enjoy this new found endeavor, I hope that my skills continue to improve.


The labeled cigar, is Dominican Volado Piloto Cubano, a piece of Pelo d'Oro Ligero, with a Cameroon binder and a Nicaraguan wrapper. The two smaller sticks are the same filler with some PA oscuro wrapper. And the last stick to the far right, is T-13 Viso 1 piece of the Pelo d'Oro Ligero and some beautiful Nicaraguan wrapper, that I should have allowed to case a but longer, but I couldn't wait. I Look forward to trying these new blends and testing my palate with them as well.
Thank you again Webmost!

How did this blend turn out? I’m going to take a rough stab at it and say... a good medium-med full? How were flavors?
98 Criollo, and the Nic. Seco/Jalapa.

This is really quite good. I will report back after a month or so. That is the time I decided to wait before evaluation. I enjoyed a few different blends, this one included, but I expect changes as the tobacco and cigars get to correct RH. It is on the med-full in my opinion. But, I was quite excited and over drew the cigar some and with the weather, you try not to stay outside too long.

Finally getting a chance to smoke this KFC cheroot blend end to end. It’s interesting in a good way. Flavour is heavily tobacco forward (shocking!) I thinks it’s a half leaf of ASP ligero with some Corojo 2006 seco as filler. The main flavour that builds in quite a linear curve is actually a nice savoury, briney, kelpy but not fishy flavour I am quite enjoying. Probably the most unique tasting cigar I’ve had in a long time. The KFC (actually Tennessee FC) makes the burn more difficult correlative with the brinyness because the way I rolled has an extra layer toward the foot. I will try and adjust the shape of the wrap according for next time. It was about 67 RH. (Edit: that’s the cigar storage RH, not ambient)1AF621E6-849A-4098-B6EF-47A7065C6708.jpeg

I’ve been cutting my own hair and shaving with a carbon steel straight razor since the start of the pandemic so I figured I’d earned a barber pole. Trouble is, the wrappers I have don’t have a lot of contrast. This is Corojo oscuro and Ecuador Cameroon. It took me literally tens of seconds to get differentiation in the photo. My Christmas present to myself is on its way that should make the next one look less like a zombie barber’s pole. C34C9BD0-2D9A-4BE9-BAFC-B72A2C076520.jpeg

More of webmost's assortment of blending. This is a Cameroon wrapper selected from the same binder stock wrapped around some of the Piloto Cubano seco, viso and a half leaf of Dominican Ligero Criollo.
