Grown from seed originally from Cuba, this Honduras filler has been aged for 6 years. This tobacco has notes of nutmeg and cinnamon and very little pepper. It is a beautiful leaf with medium brown appearance and somewhat delicate texture. The leaf size is approximately 20″ x 8″. This tobacco truly possesses qualities similar to those of leaf from the Island Nation south of Miami. The mid-rib is intact and will need to be removed before it is used for rolling.
As with all Whole Leaf Tobacco products, this leaf arrives in proper moisture content for working, but additional moisture will be needed to make the wrapper more pliable and elastic for wrapping.
This product is sometimes referred to as a Honduras Cuban Seed Wrapper.
