Ugh. Do you guys know what you're asking about? bleck!
What? You didnt hear about that new blending experiment?

Dominican ligero, piloto cubano seco+viso, bound with dominican binder, and wrapped in candela?

I think it was being called the “Chigrincho”

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Welp...
I found my old (I think they r on version 20 and I have version 2) copy of Photoshop Elements... but being ancient it wouldn't even load up on my laptop.

I still have no clue where the Adobe suite I had went, but that wasn't much newer.. I found a free online program and while it looked promising and similar to Photoshop, it was an absolute uphill battle just to make this little number. I thought I would make a little text based logo with Casa Trompeta as the test. Yet after a mighty struggle this is as far as I got. The idea is at least conveyed.. i think.

I cede, I give up, I'm done If you can use this random little graphic Mike go ahead.

These look amazing! I have dabbled a bit in rolling but haven’t done it since early last spring. I felt inspired to pick it back up today and I am sooooo rusty, also my leaf was pretty dry but I’m happy to be back rolling again!

Nowhere near as good looking as yours!

Good deal, Preacher man. It looks you are not using a mold. Doing so will go a LONG way toward your cigars looking better. Good luck!

Thanks, one of my biggest problems is not taking the time to case my leaf. Gotta work on planning ahead.

...is surely just around the corner, now that my cigar mold collection is "complete." Well, complete enough. Clockwise from the bottom left: 5 x 50 wood, 7 x 52 plastic, 6.5 x 58 wood, 4.75 x 36 wood, 7 x 48 wood, and the newest addition, 5.5 x 43 plastic which I just rec'd today. Now, if only there was someone here in Half Ashed land who had a preference for
corona-ish sized cigars. Nope. Can't think of any. Oh, well...
Was going through old posts and double checked this one. Then I saw you casually add having a 6.5x58 cigar mold!? :shock:

That seems like a size not utilized much since 6x60 came to stay it seems. Got me wondering though..

Did you actually use that Kong Dong size mold? Or was it just something you acquired early on in collecting cigar stuff?

That big wooden one turned out to not be great. The sides didn’t really line up well, creating a pretty deep crease along the cigar sides. The mold looks nice, tho, so it’s just decorative now.
