Our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf is one of the darkest tobacco leaves offered at Leaf Only. It has a very pungent, smoke-like smell and flavor due to the "Fire Curing Process", which uses large, gentle fires to cure the tobacco. Although this leaf is traditionally used to make chewing tobacco, snuff, snus, and in pipe blends, some of our customers have enjoyed this leaf in a hookah blend, or as a roll-your-own fronto leaf, comparable to our Dark Air Cured Tobacco Leaf, despite it's strong smell and flavor. Also known as "Red Herring".
Our Dark Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf arrives with a very strong, smokey scent that might even overpower the smell of other tobacco leaves.
Our Fire Cured Tobacco Leaves are grown in TN, USA. Unlike previous crops, these leaves ARE graded, so you can expect most of them to be of wrapper or close to wrapper quality.
These Fire Cured leaves are thick, easy to handle, and some of the largest tobacco leaves we've ever encountered. Like the name sounds, the dark fire cured tobacco leaf has an extremeley dark brown color, similar to that of theCT Maduro tobacco leaves we offer, but is usually much larger because the maduro leaves are picked from the top of the CT broadleaf plant, which leads to their smaller size.
This leaf is mostly used to make your own chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco blends, snuff, snus, and even in some cigarette blends. This leaf is also used as a fronto leaf in some areas and is known as Red Herring because it smells similar to smoked fish (or smoked anything really).
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"P.S. We've been talking to a few of our neighbors about home processing the whole leaf and then RYO, so we might have some new customers for you. Alaska is already charging $7.50 a pack, and looking to increase it again this summer... and it's ALL sin tax. I'd rather be giving you and the farmers my money and so would my neighbors, thx much!"
