Our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf arrives with a very strong, smoky scent that might even overpower the smell of other tobacco leaves in the same package. Make sure you separate your tobaccos when they arrive to avoid the transference of smell.
Our Fire Cured Tobacco Leaves are grown in TN, USA. Unlike previous crops, these leaves are graded, so you can expect most of them to be of wrapper or close to wrapper quality. Allow up to 20% per pound for waste.
These Fire Cured leaves are thick, easy to handle, and some of the largest tobacco leaves we’ve ever encountered. Like the name sounds, the Dark Fire Cured tobacco leaf has an extremely dark brown color, similar to that of the CT Maduro tobacco leaves we offer; but, is usually much larger because the Maduro leaves are picked from the top of the CT Broadleaf plant, leading to their smaller size.
This leaf is mostly used to make your own chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco blends, snuff, snus, and even in some cigarette blends. This leaf is also used as a fronto leaf in some areas and is known as Red Herring because it smells similar to smoked fish.
