The Fronto / Dark Air Cured (J1) is often a very dark, very thick air cured tobacco leaf. The J1 Grade name signifies that it was grown southwest of Louisville, in Kentucky, USA. This leaf is often one of the largest, and one of the darkest leaves we carry, but as with any natural leaf, this can vary slightly. This leaf has a very dark chocolate brown color on top, with a lighter color on the underneath. Due to its large size, it is to be expected that there will be slightly more damages than other Dark Air Cured.
Leaf preference varies from location to location, so it is always recommended that you try a selection of a few different leaves, to see which you, or your customers, prefer most! Each type of leaf has 1/4lb sample sizes available.
Our Dark Air Cured Fronto Leaf (J1)is one of many varieties of leaf called Grabba, Red Rose, Red Leaf, Fronto, Funta, and other similar terms that mean that all mean the same thing - that it is a dark thick tobacco leaf, popular in the Caribbean, commonly used for crushing or blending. It provides a strong, bold smoke that is often referred to as ‘hot’, or with a strong ‘hit’.
This type of leaf is commonly sold either by the leaf, or by the pound in many stores. Although primarily used to mix with, it is also possible to roll with some of the thinner varieties of Dark Air Cured leaf.
What People Are Saying About Leaf Only
"Leaf only has been nothing but a pleasure to work with. They offer extremely prompt service and have a very reliable staff. They go above ones expectations when it comes to advice not only on what to purchase, but on how to take care of your purchased products (leaf). If you Have the pleasure of dealing With Ms. Monique Hughes, you are definitely in good hands. Apart from the great staff (something most places are lacking nowadays) Leaf only has some of the best tobacco I've ever smoked. Friends and family have asked where I purchased the cigars, only to remain with their jaw slack, when I told them they were personally rolled. The taste is great and the price is unbeatable. Of course you will need to try different blends to find something you like, but if I could recommend at least one type of wrapper, it would be the ct shade leaf wrapper. Amazing colour and great taste! Don't let the price tag scare you though, the amount of wrappers you get per package is well worth the money (over 100 leaves per pound). I cannot recommend this site enough, 10 stars out of 5 every step of the way, Thanks Leaf Only !! "
