A question for Kuzi
I was watching a video of AJ Fernandez and notice he kept doing a peculiar thing with the cigars he would put them up to his ear and that's something I've never heard of and don't know what he was doing ,what he's listening for but I figured if anybody knew it would be Kuzi.
... but in this case i believe that it is how much the wrapper has lost/gained moisture. I saw him doing this on the rolling floor in his factory.
dont ask how he tells exactly. i have no idea.
Maybe I just like to believe that I know what I'm talking about, though haha! I like to roll em around before smoking, though, and feel and listen.
Bingo! Depending on the Rh the wrapper will have a "silky" crackle to it.
Interesting, I picked that up while in Germany. 99% of the time I do that before I cut my cigar.
