Most of the stuff you probably already have:
Cutting board
Pizza cutter or Ulu
Spray bottle with distilled water

Leaf and glue can be ordered from a few different places but I prefer leafonly.com because you can get 1/4lb samples of any of their leaf.

If you are really interested go on YouTube and check out bliss cigar co’s videos on bunching and wrapping. That’ll give you an idea of what you need.

Both leafonly.com and wholeleaftobacco.com sell cigar rolling kits. Let me know if you are really interesting in getting started.Image

Well I knew it! You fit right in with the rest of the enablers here! :)

Yup this is what I was hoping for in the other thread.

I have spent time watching cigar rolling youtube vids...but never tried it. I'll bet before long I will have to give it a try.

Thanks for starting this thread AKP
This reminds me of when (on a cigar forum) i asked people on there what they liked about pipe smoking, this was before I tried it. Looking back all I was really looking for was a push. Lol I pretty much already knew I wanted to try it!

Threads like this are dangerous for guys like me. My biggest hobby is collecting hobbies.

Tested out the BMF T-13 blend and liked it enough to roll some more but used a Maduro wrapper instead to hopefully round the flavors out a little better!

This is a sexy blend!!

I had done this one before but it was wrapped in Ec Shade and the flavors were good but it was missing something. So I felt that a Maduro wrapper would round it out and help the flavors marry as well as add some sweetness.

I was right! Sweet, smooth, with a little spice, leather, coffee and i one point i tasted vanilla! I wanna roll a bunch of them and let them age.

I still have all that tobacco I grew some years ago hanging upstairs. I keep telling myself I'll roll it into cigars or some such, but I'm afraid it's been so dry for so long that it might be a waste of time.
Just be careful while moving them and place them in the bathroom while running a steaming shower. They will hydrate right back to be pliable.
I highly recommend discussing this plan with your wife, before executing it.
