Please Note: By trade, we are tobacco procurers. Although we work closely with farmers, we do not actually grow the tobacco we sell on our website. For questions about how to grow, cure, or ferment tobacco, we will share as much knowledge as possible, but our hands-on experience is limited. 25 - 50 seeds per pack. All of our tobacco seeds are open pollinated.
"Just wanted to leave some feedback on one of the cigars I recently ordered the torpedo. At first glance it's a nice looking cigar, with some oils on wrapper. It's a very smooth smoke, more mild than medium, at least to me. Flavor profile had some notes of earth, wood, mineral and a slight tart grassy note at times. The wood notes are more pronounced through the nose with a short finish. The draw was good, but what impressed me the most was the construction. Razor sharp burn and a nice solid ash. "
