Cigar Patching?

I have a question about "Patching" cigars. I was smoking a very, very good Undercrown the other night and noticed what looked very much like a patch.

I was surprised to see this as I wouldnt have thought the maker would do this. It didnt interfere with the experience at all but I've never seen that before in all my very limited experience. Is it normal for rollers to do this?

    I've never seen that before.. That cigar should have been a "second".

    Hahahaaaa actually yes some companies do patch them!! I think this is to do mostly about how many they produce from a certain batch. I've had padron annys with patches on them and kinda wondered the same thing. But due to padrons low output compared to the rest I feel as if they don't throw around as much tabacco to ditch it and restart. It doesn't effect anything but does look odd. But padrons aren't very pretty to begin with. I've never seen it on any other brands till now with you. I just figured the other companies would sell them as seconds

    I've had 2 RP both diff cigars that had this. Both diff blend of cigars. The patch was about 1/4" . Peeled them off and saw holes. To me, that's ghetto. I don't smoke RP due to this.

    Or it could just be a piece of scrap from the rolling table that got stuck.

    I didn't try to peel it off but it did have a shiny Rim around it that led me to believe it was glued. I wouldn't have thought Undercrown would do that. Again, it didn't interfere with the smoke at all. I was just wondering if it was normal. Another learning experience.

    You must be used to smoking the older Liga stuff. Welcome to the new improved construction of Drew Estates, and the increased prices you get to pay for the new quality...end joke.
