How much ligero for a medium smoke?


Recommended Posts

If anybody else is experienced with rolling what would you consider a good amount of ligero for a medium cigar. I have been doing 2 seco, 1 viso, 1/2 -1 ligero, wrapper and binder. I don't know if thats enough ligero though...Its hard to tell because I am still waiting for a lot of my cigars to dry and cure properly.

I've zero experience blending cigars, so take this for what it's worth...

With all the variables involved, I don't believe there could be a strict formula. When you say medium, do you mean body or strength? Where did the tobacco come from? What were the conditions for the particular harvest? How was it processed? Perhaps just as important, what size cigar? A full leaf of ligero in a 35 ring cigar might yield a different result than a full leaf of ligero in a 54 ring cigar. How about length as well. Etc, etc....

I figure learning tobacco isn't A,B,C - you'll probably have to be willing to invest some time in order to figure some of these things out. Your own palate is what you should trust.

Only way to know is to smoke it and alter accordingly.

Do you know what your leaves taste like isolated? Get a pipe and stick each leaf in it to find out what you're working with.
