Mainly used to make cigarette tobacco leaf blends a bit stronger and smoother, Maryland 609 is also used for cigar filler, pipe blends, and chewing tobacco leaf. Maryland 609 is a “light air cured” type of tobacco similar to Burley but lighter in body and more neutral in flavor.
Our Maryland 609 is a thin bodied “Light Air Cured” reminiscent of our (more full-flavored) Burley. Maryland 609 has classically been used for commercial cigarette blends across the United States and beyond. Traditionally grown in Maryland, our Maryland 609 is now grown with the same seed in Pennsylvania. This tobacco is best mixed with Flue Cured tobacco and is perfect for cigarettes and pipes.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Just wanted to let you all know how much I enjoy the nicotiana rustica I bought once, and now again. Was not even shopping for tobacco when I found your site. It was the first time I've bought tobacco and has been such a gift. I share a puff when I'm out and about and people really like it so I shared your site. Thanks for what you do. "
