Dissecting a Reserva


Recommended Posts

It looks OK. to my poor eyes.  All long filler, no floor rubbish. I’m just not sure how this was deconstructed, my guess with a knife, making it seem to to be worse than it is.

MY GUESS 😇

I don't see anything obviously suspicious...:huh:

The wrapper and binder look fine but the filler looks kind of weird, like little pieces of kindling and not leaves. I've seen it on suspect cigars, but I haven't dissected too many cigars (especially known good ones) so it could be due to poor storage.

Edit:

Here's one I dissected where the filler didn't look like this:

Here's one that did look like this unfortunately I didn't get/post the pictures of the dissection:

It looked like long filler to me, too. What am I missing?

I suppose they look a little brittle but it doesn't jump out at me. It definitely looks like less filler than I would expect. And seco and ligero is usually a little darker in general. And the second binder leaf is pretty thick. 

But you kind of have to really look hard at it.

I agree. Apart from looking dry and brittle, nothing looks obviously wrong to me. Not sure what I’m missing.
