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
"Thank-you SO much for doing that work for me. This level of customer service is unprecedented. You are a very generous person (and it speaks volumes for Leaf Only) to have dedicated your time and talent to this ostensibly minor (but to me unsolvable) customer issue. And I won't forget it (you could've just schlepped around the office looking busy between sips of coffee :)"
