Our Havana 7 CT broadleaf is a popular, light colored, good shining, large leaf. This tobacco leaf is somewhat slim in cross section, but carries all that is to be expected out of a Havana seed - Grown in Connecticut!
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.
This leaf is strong and spicey, but jam packed full of flavor! When moisturized it springs to life and is quite supple, middle vein strips smoothly from the point towards the heel. Veins are easily rolled down, and of small to middle size.
Strong for a filler but if mixed with a lighter filler it as a bold note. Works great as binder, very smooth and quite robust under handling and adds a robust note to the tobacco it binds. Smooth finish with beautiful blending of edges and end cap.
This tobacco leaf has a true Havana flavor!
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"The dark fire cured remains a winner, but a little goes a long way in my pipe blends. One half leaf rolled with about two big bright leaves and then scissored makes a decent substitute for Three Nuns or Escudo.
My favorite so far is your Canadian flue cured shredded and blended with modest amounts of Latakia and Perique. Almost indistinguishable from the former Dunhill London Mixtures and way better than the current musty German or Danish versions now available.
A REAL treat is any of your bright leaf products tightly rolled with an UNrolled bit of Gawith and Hoggarth Black Irish Twist and then sliced. Makes a grand substitute for many tobaccos which have just gone away. "
