    My binders and my wrappers came in dry. What do I do to make them playable?
    They’re too dry to work with.

    fairwind+ I have to disagree with you about the hole. I’ve bought several
    cases of cigars at a discounted price because they had holes in the
    wrapper, and I would say that about 80% of them smoke just as well as the
    ones without. It does really suck though when you realize that it’s not
    gonna smoke right. Like watching a train wreck in slow motion….

    Scott, the reason it tastes different – probably terrible, is the wrapper
    is no longer there to keep it air tight. The cigar won’t burn properly.
    Common sense and logical thinking says 1 wrapper leaf won’t change the
    flavor of 99% of the cigar, but a wrapper with a hole or no wrapper will
    ruin the cigar by not allowing it to burn properly.

    How many courix is that? LOL No honestly now that’s a cigar I would wanna
    smoke. Iam harvesting my homegrown virginia tumbako this month, but I don’t
    think that I can roll a cigar like that from it. pffff Lucky you!

    Good video. Great talent this guy has but I disagree with him about the
    wrapper having no affect on the flavor of the cigar, simply NOT true. Yes
    you can not “blend” one leaf, however it does SIGNIFICANTLY throw its
    weight into the overall blend of the cigar. Don’t believe me? Try smoking
    your favorite cigar and enjoying that first third, “as is”. Now remove that
    wrapper and continue. TRY to tell me you don’t notice a BIG difference.
