So I rolled my first cigar! Lots of problems with the wrapper. Fewer with the cap actually. And mold made wings on it. But, I Rolled My First Cigar!! Lol

Looks way better than my first cigar!

It's not smoking badly either considering I gave it no time to dry and the humidify correctly. But deluxestogie posted to roll then test so that's what I'm doing. Learned that the head is soft. Whole cigar is softer now that I am force drying it by smoking it. So it's not nearly as tight as I thought it was. Draw is actually pretty good. Can't leave it in attended for long or really have to work to get it going again. Burn is fairly even though and have not had to correct anything yet.

It tastes very nice, thanks to the WLT blend that I bought. Head got softer and cap glue failed (pectin probably mixed incorrectly) but all in all I'm claiming success and looking forward to the next to see if I can improve on the issues with this one!

The blend I did this one with is Azucardo Oscuro. The other blend i got is Terroso Profundo. I think I ended up with ligero running down one side though. The binder and wrapper were pretty damp and slow burning but one edge was slower than the others after I was half through it and had to be touched up. The head was way softer than it should have been so I should have added some there in the bunch.
