Connecticut's 1DW Maduro broadleaf excels as a cigar wrap in taste, seals down smooth, cuts clean, and leaves the cigar with a mildly rustic texture. Velvet leaf moistens quickly and unfolds smoothly.
While it may look like a rugged fellow, it acts like a gentleman. Good, clean, white ash, and great in all circumstances!
Because this leaf is picked from the very top of the CT Broadleaf plant, the leaves tend to be smaller than average tobacco leaves, but what it lacks in size, it makes up in flavor!
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"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. "

The CT-1dw-maduro is a great leaf to have. Everything that is said on the description of this leaf is accurate. It has a great taste. Sometimes I even think it's like a very small zest of a tropical fruit like mango. It burned very slow and it deals great after rolling. I reccomend this leaf to everyone to try.
Foodforthought: In my Dominican culture. When people here about "Maduro" it means someone cooked some delicious yellow-sweet Plantains.
