Fuentes Crucet Cigar Rolling Event

When The Great Torpedo asked Walt and I to cover for him this week, I decided it was high time for another video adventure. But instead of a cigar review, I have something a little different. This past weekend the folks from Fuentes Crucet came to town, and this time, Desiree and Jeyson brought their mother. She isn’t just “mom”, she’s the master blender and roller of all Fuentes Crucet cigars. They weren’t kidding when they said this was a family business! I made sure to bring my little flipcam to catch her in action.

I loitered around for a while watching her roll cigars and talking with Rich, their new rep, when suddenly the tables turned. After hearing about the Nub “Gummy Bear” I rolled last year (easily the gooey-est, most pectin-soaked cigar ever created), they insisted I try my hand at making a Connecticut-wrapped Habanero 87. (Ordinarily they’re wrapped in Cameroon leaf, but it’s too delicate to be taken on the road like this.) Desiree grabbed the flip cam, and I set to work rolling my second cigar ever.

Of course, it seemed only right that if I’m putting together a video, that I outta get some footage of me smoking a relevant cigar. As “host” of this video, I grabbed a Fuentes Crucet Habanera 78 robusto that had had adequate humidor rest. This short video doesn’t include a full review of that stick, just a few bracketing comments. (See the full review of the Fuentes Crucet Habanera 78 here.) Enjoy!

  1. Hahaha! Great video Brian! The Benny Hill theme was funny! Looks like you did a decent job on rolling that stogie. Your written reviews are always top notch, but it is nice to see you on video too.

  2. Between you and me and in a totally heterosexual way…I think you are much better looking than the other two!

  3. LOL – awesome pick of the Benny HIll theme!! That cigar didnt look too bad either. Was funny hearing the guy in the background talking about how Tiger will mount a comeback..hehehe

  4. Still have not tried that cigar so I’ll have to put it on my to-do-list. Love the video Brian.

    But right now I have an urge to go throughout the office and rapidly smack people on the head. I will use the words knickers and Bristols today as part of my vocabulary. Thank you Benny Hill (and Brian)!

  5. So how long do you have to let those cigars in a humidor before they become smokable, or are they ready right away?

  6. Good video.
    that cigar you rolled doesn’t look half bad. I alway wanted to try rolling one.

    Old Stogie is trying to get FC to do a rolling event there too!

  7. Glad you guys enjoyed the video! Truth be told, this cigar is a significant improvement over the last attempt.

    A Well Aged Cuban,
    In a totally heterosexual way, thank you.

    Mike-KnightRid,
    They advised we let ’em rest for a couple of weeks for best results. I don’t plan to smoke mine any time soon.

    Bonus for people who read the comments:
    I forgot to mention it in the video, or the introductory text, but the Fuentes Crucet folks told me they are coming out with a new fuller-bodied cigar for IPCPR. Unfortunately, I couldn’t weasel any more details out of them than that.

  8. Great video Brian. I liked the Benny Hill music as well. Hey, you didn’t show how you bunched the tabacco for the filler? I’m curious how that was done?

  9. In a totally heterosexual way I’m a bit offended by a well aged cuban’s comment…LOL.

    But anyway…Brian nice video! Really enjoyed it! You’re a natural on camera bro.

  10. Great vid Brian. 🙂

    A friend brought a bunch of tobacco to a herf in February and we had a bit of a rolling party. I didn’t, but from watching my friends it’s a lot harder than it looks. I thought yours came out looking pretty great.

  11. thanks for the vid Brian… I would love to make fun of the cigar you rolled however I have a feeling that mine would be MUCH MUCH worse. LOL

  12. Hey nice video brooo…! I liked the music in the background while u was making a cigar n by the way well try Brain, can u do one favour, can i get that cigar which u made, so i will try on this new year with my friends, hehehehe……!
