The Havana Primed Tobacco Leaf is a popular, light colored delicate leaf. With CT Grown Havana tobacco being such a unique, yet affordable leaf, it's no wonder customers choose this leaf to make their cigars one of a kind.
These CT Havana tobacco leaves are NOT graded. So in each bundle you will likley find leaves for wrapper, binder, and filler or any combination thereof.
Light colored smooth tan, and good shine, large leaf, slim in cross section. Strong aroma with earthy tones and spicy top note. Relatively easy to work with, and absorbs moisture at a moderate pace.
As filler it was tasty and strong, needs to be mated with any other leaf to really shine through. As binder, using this leaf as binder is a crime of passion. One should not use such fine leaf to bind, but you can help it. Any combination of tobaccos seem to get along with this leaf as a binder, as it adds a distinct base note. As wrapper , this is where this leaf belongs, its aroma and taste build a slightly spicy top note that never grows overwhelming even in a big ring gauge.
This leaf is technically the same variety as the Havana 7, but the difference is that it is "primed", which means it is picked as it grows rather than as a whole plant at the end of the season.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Over all I am glad I made the purchase and am happy with the quality of the tobacco, thanks to Monique and Calvin for all the help and getting my package to me in a timely fashion. Happy soon to be return customer here. I had looked into this company about 3 months ago because I was interested in getting some raw tobacco. At the time it was after chat hours and upon looking at the selection I was overwhelmed by the amount of varieties available from Leaf Only and did not at that time make an order. I had the thought a few months later to look back into the raw tobacco as before however this time during business hours. That is when I had the pleasure of chatting with Monique who was very helpful in helping me identify which types would best suite my needs. Out of the bag the leaves were the nicest looking, with the best moisture and least amount of damage"
