This leaf is a dark leaf that comes with a lower-strength smoky aroma and smell that the fire cured tobacco leaf is famous for. 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 cigarette or hookah blend, or as a roll-your-own fronto leaf, comparable to our Dark Air Cured Tobacco Leaf, despite it's mild smoked smell and flavor.
Our Light Fire Cured Tobacco Leaf arrives with a very mild, smoky scent that is comparable to our Dark Fire Cured leaf, but much less potent.
This particular leaf is of VERY good quality, with minimal damage. This is not typical of Dark Air, or Dark Fire Cured grades. Allow up to 20% per pound of waste.
Light Fire Cured Tobacco Leaves are typically grown in TN, KY, VA and MD, USA. This leaf is also known as "Virginia Fired Cured", or "Virginia Tobacco", even though it is not even close to being the more common "Virginia Flue Cured" leaf.
These Light Fire Cured leaves are very thick, easy to handle, rubbery, and very large. They have a medium dark brown color, similar to that of the Dark Air Cured leaves we offer, but seems a bit more fresh and pliable due to its recent crop year.
While this leaf is mostly used to make your own chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco blends, snuff, snus, and even in cigarette blends. This leaf is also used as a fronto or ceremonial tobacco leaf.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Leaf only has been nothing but a pleasure to work with. They offer extremely prompt service and have a very reliable staff. They go above ones expectations when it comes to advice not only on what to purchase, but on how to take care of your purchased products (leaf). If you Have the pleasure of dealing With Ms. Monique Hughes, you are definitely in good hands. Apart from the great staff (something most places are lacking nowadays) Leaf only has some of the best tobacco I've ever smoked. Friends and family have asked where I purchased the cigars, only to remain with their jaw slack, when I told them they were personally rolled. The taste is great and the price is unbeatable. Of course you will need to try different blends to find something you like, but if I could recommend at least one type of wrapper, it would be the ct shade leaf wrapper. Amazing colour and great taste! Don't let the price tag scare you though, the amount of wrappers you get per package is well worth the money (over 100 leaves per pound). I cannot recommend this site enough, 10 stars out of 5 every step of the way, Thanks Leaf Only !! "
