The Fronto / Dark Air Cured (W1) is a dark, thick, air cured tobacco leaf. The W1 Grade name signifies that it was grown in Tennessee, USA. This leaf is very large, and carries a chocolate brown color, that will only darken with age. This leaf is commonly larger in size, but it can vary in color more than other American grown Dark Air Cured. Although it does come tied in bundles, or 'Hands', due to its large size, it is to be expected that there will be slightly more damages than other bundled D.A.C. leaf.
This is a premium cigar tobacco having beautiful dark colored, long leaves. Works for filler, binder, and if cured properly can be used as a wrapper. Has a rich, deep flavor that blends well with any tobacco.
The CT Fronto Leaf Wrapper is a wonder to behold! Although slightly more expensive than other fronto leaves, this leaf is usually MUCH more expensive as you can see with our other Connecticut Leaves (1DW, MED, etc.). CT Tobaco leaves are known for being a premium cigar wrapper, so finding CT broadleaves graded for fronto is unusual.
