Our Habano 2000 Seed Ecuadorian Ligero Shade Wrapper is similar to its sister leaf, the Ecuadorian Seco and Viso Shade Wrapper, but it is much darker and thicker. Visually, it looks similar to our Mexican San Andres Wrapper, but as usual has its own Ecuadorian flavor.



Description

Our Ecuadorian Ligero Shade Wrapper is thicker, and more full-bodied then it's Seco and Viso counterparts. These Ecuadorian Shade Wrappers are known for their beauty and revered by the cigar manfacturing industry.

These leaves are much larger than they look in the picture. These leaves arrive tied in traditional hands and tend to fan out to create the illusion of smaller bundles. Keep in mind that shade grown tobacco is usually much more fragile then sun grown wrappers, (Maudros and Oscuros) and often require a bit of finesse to use properly. Do not be discouraged, as this leaf can and should be processed like all other tobacco leaf wrappers. This leaf was grown in Ecuador from the Habano 2000 seed.

One of the most interesting tid-bits about this leaf is that it is said to be "cloud grown", instead of in actual shade tents (like they do here in Connecticut). From what we understand, the region they are grown has almost constant cloud coverage (being in the mountainous foothills of Ecuador), which diffuses the light like a traditional cheesecloth shade tent would!

What People Are Saying About Leaf Only

"I am a new customer of Leaf Only and my first experience has been wonderful. I placed my order over the phone and spoke to Rich. He was very helpful and pleasant to speak with. We discussed my plans for the leaves -- I am an E-liquid maker-- and he gave me some very helpful suggestions for my future orders. My leaves arrived very quickly in the mail and I could smell the lovely aroma of tobacco before I even opened the box. The leaves were packed well individually wrapped and flat packed. I ordered the Organic American Flue Cure, Brightleaf Sweet, Nicaraguan Aged Seco long leaf, Dark Fire Cured, and Yendije Oriental. I was very impressed with the texture and highly aromatic nature of the leaves. These leaves will work well for my extraction purposes for e-liquid. I am looking forward to running my first tests with these leaves and when I am in need of more tobacco leaves, I will be shopping with Leaf Only from now on. Thank you very much for all your help "

I LOVE THIS WRAPPER!! Arrived in excellent shape just like the seco wrapper, but these are much thicker, and easier to work with. Consistent coloring, nice velvety feel, and a wonderful aroma. By far my favorite wrapper to date.
