Our CT Shade Leaf has a great earth brown / tan color, and is velvety and thin, which is what is to be expected in high quality Shade Tobacco. Carries a fresh, yet earthy tone musk with a top note of spice. When moistened, it is a very thin and pliable leaf.
The wait is finally over! Leaf Only once again offers Premium Connecticut Shade Tobacco for your enjoyment. Premium CT Shade Leaf is often difficult to find because many of the larger purchasers will buy out the farms entire crop even before they grow it!
Handle with great care, moisten with a sponge as to not damage the leaf. This leaf is small veined, so there is no need to roll out. As a wrapper it is mellow, but firm as a top note. Loud, yet distinctive. Light when first lit, getting bolder with each puff. This extra large premium Connecticut Shade Leaf is something that is not easily found for retail purchasing. Considered the rolling paper of tobacco. Allow up to 10% per pound waste. Enjoy this wonderful cigar wrapper leaf while it lasts!
"The dark fire cured remains a winner, but a little goes a long way in my pipe blends. One half leaf rolled with about two big bright leaves and then scissored makes a decent substitute for Three Nuns or Escudo.
My favorite so far is your Canadian flue cured shredded and blended with modest amounts of Latakia and Perique. Almost indistinguishable from the former Dunhill London Mixtures and way better than the current musty German or Danish versions now available.
A REAL treat is any of your bright leaf products tightly rolled with an UNrolled bit of Gawith and Hoggarth Black Irish Twist and then sliced. Makes a grand substitute for many tobaccos which have just gone away. "
