That's probably the draw restriction from the square pressing. It does change the profile a bit. Carlos Fuente Jr has stated many times that there is no difference in the blend between any of the Anejos.

Frankly, I am a bit surprised at that statement and would like to understand more of what he meant and the context the interview/conversation. Because it would shock me if he meant that a change in a cigars proportions have no effect upon the blend. As an Anejo fan, would you please post any links or magazine articles concerning one of the interviews with Carlito and the Anejo topic in this thread or pm them to me; I didn't find any after the 'google it' I did.

scaling the proportons of tobacco up or down for a change in vitola does not constitute a change in a blend. as for the profiles being slightly different between different vitolas, of course, different vitolas smoke differently, this is well established.
