The Fronto / Dark Air Cured (ALO) is a dark, thick air cured tobacco leaf. The ALO Grade name signifies that it was grown in-between Tennessee and Kentucky, USA. This leaf is large, and carries a medium-dark chocolate brown color, only to continue to darken with age.
Leaf preference varies from location to location, so it is always recommended that you try a selection of a few different leaves, to see which you, or your customers, prefer most! Each type of leaf has 1/4lb sample sizes available.
Our Dark Air Cured Fronto Leaf (ALO)is one of many varieties of leaf called Grabba, Red Rose, Red Leaf, Fronto, Funta, and other similar terms that all mean the same thing - that it is a dark thick tobacco leaf, popular in the Caribbean, commonly used for crushing or blending. It provides a strong, bold smoke that is often referred to as ‘hot’, or with a strong ‘hit’.
This type of leaf is commonly sold either by the leaf, or by the pound in many stores. Although primarily used to mix with, it is also possible to roll with some of the thinner varieties of Dark Air Cured leaf.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"I am really impressed with the quality, freshness, and varieties available to me through Leafonly.com. Not only am I smoking less daily as a result of a better choice for my habit. I am enjoying blending, processing, and smoking my final result. Like a fine wine, brandy, or cognac that is precisely how I would describe my tobacco. Canadian organic flue cured to The robust St James Perique. I Went from two packs a day American Spirits to ten of my "designer" cigs. I am using a recycled pasta cutter. The spaghetti cutter is working great to process the leaves, the moisture content of the leaves upon arrival was perfect, I guess around 18%. Cut, gentle toss and its perfect for smoke. I even rolled a few cigarillos with my blend using the St James Perique as a wrapper. Successfully! Thank you, I do look forward to trying more variety as time goes on.
