The Fronto / Dark Air Cured (J1) is often a very dark, very thick air cured tobacco leaf, but is not a wrapper grade tobacco. The J1 Grade name signifies that it was grown southwest of Louisville, KY, USA. This leaf is often one of the largest, and one of the darkest leaves we carry, but as with any natural leaf, this can vary slightly. This leaf has a very dark chocolate brown color on top, with a lighter color on the underneath. Due to its large size, it is to be expected that there will be slightly more damages than other Dark Air Cured.
Leaf preference varies from location to location, so it is always recommended that you try a selection of a few different leaves, to see which you, or your customers, prefer most! Each type of leaf has 1/4lb sample sizes available.
Our Dark Air Cured Fronto Leaf (J1)is one of many varieties of leaf called Grabba, Red Rose, Red Leaf, Fronto, Funta, and other similar terms that mean that all mean the same thing - that it is a dark thick tobacco leaf, popular in the Caribbean, commonly used for crushing or blending. It provides a strong, bold smoke that is often referred to as ‘hot’, or with a strong ‘hit’.
This type of leaf is commonly sold either by the leaf, or by the pound in many stores. Although primarily used to mix with, it is also possible to roll with some of the thinner varieties of Dark Air Cured leaf.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Now that the dust is settling I wanted to take the time and thank you for your generous donation to my brother-in-law Gary Thompsons Memorial golf tournament held June 22nd. It's local businesses such as yourself that truly help bring this tournament together. This was the 6th annual Memorial Tournament for Gary and we are now doing a scholarship in his name at Middletown High School. On behalf of the Thompson, Shukis family we thank you very much. I'm glad I found your place this past winter when I saw a little sign on Washington Street. Your staff have always been very helpful I should let you know, especially Calvin who has taken the time and gone out of his way to help me out whenever I'm at the store as I am definitely not a cigar connoisseur by any means. Look forward to seeing you again in person and thanking you personally. Take care. "
