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
"Over all I am glad I made the purchase and am happy with the quality of the tobacco, thanks to Monique and Calvin for all the help and getting my package to me in a timely fashion. Happy soon to be return customer here. I had looked into this company about 3 months ago because I was interested in getting some raw tobacco. At the time it was after chat hours and upon looking at the selection I was overwhelmed by the amount of varieties available from Leaf Only and did not at that time make an order. I had the thought a few months later to look back into the raw tobacco as before however this time during business hours. That is when I had the pleasure of chatting with Monique who was very helpful in helping me identify which types would best suite my needs. Out of the bag the leaves were the nicest looking, with the best moisture and least amount of damage"
