Hi guys, when it comes to rolling Cigars I do it in tubes, distributing the filler as best I can, placing the ligero and the viso in the center, but the ash does not come out completely white, however when I use the accordion technique I can see it,, I like the tubing technique better because I get more body in the cigar, could you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

The color of the ash reflects the amount of heat generated and the completeness of combustion. Hotter burn - whiter ash. Whiter is not necessarily better. If your burn is too hot, you will lose flavor / subtlety of the cigar. Roll based on how you like your cigar to taste, not how the ash looks.
