Our Aged Ecuadorian Filler Leaves are known to be a thinner, milder leaf, and is revered as a flavorful filler in the cigar manufacturing industry.
These leaves are much larger than they look in the picture. This tobacco is grown from the Habano 2000 seed, much like it's wrapper quality counterpart. Just keep in mind that shade grown tobacco is usually much more fragile that sun grown wrappers (think Maduros and Oscuros) and requires a bit of finesse.
One of the most interesting tidbits about this leaf is that it is said to be "cloud grown". From what we understand, the region they are grown has almost constant cloud coverage (being in the mountainous foothills of Ecuador).
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"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. "
