Good luck even from me. Do you use the Florida Sumatra only for the wrapper or ever inside the cigar?

Thanks, I do not know yet about the Sumatra leaf, I have sorted out all leaf in all sorts who can be used as wrappers but I have not tested the flavor at all.
Recently I rolled some cigars with only one kind of leaf just for test the flavours in each kind of tobacco but the cigars are not ready to smoke, I put them in the humidor a while.

Lower leaf of Florida Sumatra is fairly uninteresting as a filler, but as you go up the stalk, all the way to thick, dark brown top leaf, it becomes a nice condiment for filler, or as an oscuro wrapper.

I have divided the leafs into 3 (Volado, Seco and Ligero) and there are none in the "Ligero bags" that fit as wrappers, they are too small. I hope this year will get a better summer.
So my wrappers come mostly from the middle of the stalk (Seco) and I probably going to have a lot of Volado´s left in the end. :)
