Our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf Low Grade is one of the darkest tobacco leaves offered at Leaf Only. It has a very pungent, smoke-like smell and flavor due to the "Fire Curing Process", which uses large, gentle fires to cure the tobacco. Although this leaf is traditionally used to make chewing tobacco, snuff, snus, and in pipe blends, some of our customers have enjoyed this leaf in a hookah blend, or as a roll-your-own fronto leaf, comparable to our Dark Air Cured Tobacco Leaf, despite it's strong smell and flavor. Also known as "Red Herring".
Our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf Low Grade arrives with a very strong, smokey scent that might even overpower the smell of other tobacco leaves.
These Fire Cured Leaf Low Grade have an extremeley dark brown color, similar to that of theCT Maduro tobacco leaves we offer, but is usually much larger because the maduro leaves are picked from the top of the CT broadleaf plant, which leads 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 (or smoked anything really).
PLEASE NOTE: This is the LOW GRADE CONSISTENCY VERSION OF THIS LEAF. In this batch, you will find lower quality, non-wrapper quality leaves, leaf pieces, and possibly stems. We do also carry Dark Fire Cured Wrapper, which will have fewer damages. Low Grades are sold as is and there are no refunds or exchanges.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"First of all let me say thank you for providing a great service! All my orders have been packed well and shipped in a timely manner. I bought the starter kit w/ DVD which was very helpful, than upgraded to buying some more lbs of PA cigar tobacco for rolling fun.
As part of a cigar club i belong too, I had the opportunity to present my hand rolled cigars and give a demonstration to the club members. It was a resounding success and I've recommended to them all - buy the starter kit! It's loads of fun.
I got very positive results when I gave out the cigars and gave a presentation on it. People come back asking to take seconds! I'm all out of cigars - better get back to rolling!
