Home rolled Cigars

I enjoy rolling my own cigars and like any hobby it’s more fun when there are others that enjoy it as well. So I wanted to start a thread for those of us who roll our own cigars and those who are interested in rolling cigars. Post pictures of your cigars, leaf, equipment, questions, deals, blends or really anything related to cigar rolling!

Looks like you've got your technique down pretty well. Don't fault me for admiring your ash.

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

Not interested in getting started. Just interested in others doing it. I will check out leaf only just because I’m curious. :D

Image well as I’m sure you know, anything tobacco tends to be a pretty slippery slope!

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

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.
