Here are the latest off the rolling board. The cigars on the right are 50x5-6" and the one on the left is a 44x5".

CV Corojo Ligero
CV Rene Viso
CV Corojo 2006 Seco Binder
CV Corojo Oscuro Wrapper

I'm trying to figure out a good corojo based blend and these are my trials with the Rene viso. If anyone has leaf recommendations that pair well with corojo I'd be happy to hear what they are.

@waikikigun shared a blend with the traditional Corojo leaves (I don't know how this would relate to the CV leaf). The blend he shared there that I had leaf for I really enjoyed. Equal parts corojo ligero, viso, seco, bound in Nicaraguan habano seco.

Great thanks, the funny thing is that I already have a small sample of Nic 2015 Habano Seco from Don (also advertised as Condega), I think I know where it's going now.
