    I'm just messin with you. Actually, I watched the whole video. You keep posting interesting cigar videos on here and I'll see what you got. I'll try to add some content myself if I find something interesting.

    Good video. I don't smoke a lot of CAO's but it was cool to hear his story.

    I’ll post whatever’s worth watching. Trying to find something about James and Angela Brown of BLTC. They have a great story as well.

    Interesting. I'd always wondered what the significance of the hammer was.

    It was a good watch if you have the time. Knew nothing about cigars really and this helped me understand the whole process.

    Nick Melillo on the thought process of the JR 50th El Gueguense.

    “…what we’re trying to do is [balance]. Again, we start at the blend, the cigar… I don’t want people to get the feeling that we’re leaning too far on just the marketing style, we start with the cigar, but then we want to compliment that blend with artwork and packaging worthy of a special blend.”

    Really appreciate when a brand has their consumer in mind. Instead of re-branding an existing blend/vitola for marketing purposes and calling it a day.

    What's the special artwork? Looks like a regular El gueguense band and a regular Jr band.

    Thought this short video was helpful for me just to get an overview of general taste per country.

  • YaksterYakster herf wardenPosts: 17,201 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Good video.

    I picked up this Puro Pack before it was discontinued which helps too as you smoke one binder/wrapper/filler leaf to get a sense of it's contribution.

    Absolutely. That’s usually the way I try to explain it to people. First figure out the types of tobacco. Then figure out which blenders you prefer and then what factories they use.
