This high temprature, high speed drying process causes the chlorophyll to be trapped in the leaf, giving it the jade color which it is known for. Commonly used on pre-embargo cigars, this leaf is now only commonly found on mass produced machine-made cigars, and some few select high end boutique cigars.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Just wanted to leave some feedback on one of the cigars I recently ordered the torpedo. At first glance it's a nice looking cigar, with some oils on wrapper. It's a very smooth smoke, more mild than medium, at least to me. Flavor profile had some notes of earth, wood, mineral and a slight tart grassy note at times. The wood notes are more pronounced through the nose with a short finish. The draw was good, but what impressed me the most was the construction. Razor sharp burn and a nice solid ash. "
