A personal record for the week of wrapped up sticks. Few blends. Stick total 95 for the week. I do have to say that 95 in a week is pretty intense with just starting rolling last November. The knowledge gained during the week on how long to keep certain wrappers in certain “case” and for how long, etc. and playing around with using old board to help press leaf down to lessen the veins was very beneficial! Out of all of these wrapped cigars, I do have to give a special shout out for this particular wrapper on some in the pics:


-This wrapper just performed perfectly on all aspects, once properly “cased”. The aroma, pliability, medium strength (imho), and stretch was exactly what I hoped for once I STARTED rolling up cigars. Definitely a wrapper I will want to keep on hand. As far as flavors and such, first time for me using this wrapper, will provide those updates in a couple months once the chill time is done.

Which bundles used the Ecuador Cameroon in the photos?

Perhaps these pics can do justice. I haven’t tried cracking open the 10 pack bundle. I can though if these pics don’t work.

WLT Cameroon Wrapper= Sleek sexy dress if properly cases.

Cameroon, like Florida Sumatra and Ecuador Sumatra, is derived from Indonesian Sumatra Deli leaf. Each of these derivatives has its own unique properties, but all, including the original Deli, produce very toothy leaf--that really shows on the surface of the ash.

Bob! I can’t zoom in! From the view looks fantastic! Let’s see some finer details!

Hopefully memorable!
That was many thousands of cigars ago. Back in 2012, my image file names didn't always reflect the variety that I photographed. But the file name did contain "tooth", so I was able to find it.

Now, every photo is saved to my computer with a comprehensive file name that includes category, date, original image number (for finding it again on the camera's SD card), a description, and the size at 72dpi in pixels width. Certain images, such as those for blend labels and possibly for inclusion in a book, are also saved at 300dpi, noting the actual size in inches.

The more you take photos, the more you'll have, and the more important it becomes to you for them to be named in a meaningful and searchable way. Just my tobacco photos go back to 2010, and there are many thousands of them. (Compare a huge carton of family photo prints to a stack of neatly sequenced photo albums.)
