Color: dark red-brown
Thickness: thick Veins: thick
Grade: filler Typical Size: ~14" x 5-1/2"
Leaves/pound:~ 50 - 70

Comments: This richly earthy cigar filler leaf is ideal for broadening the flavor profile of
your cigars. When added as 1/5 to 1/2 of a blend with milder filler, it will add depth and
nuance to the flavor, and richness to the aroma.

Like all Viso leaf (from the Middle-upper primings of the plant), it is stronger than volado,
seco, but slightly milder than Ligero. The leaf is somewhat larger than Ligero, with a lower
leaf count than Ligero per pound.
 
A petite corona can be made with 2 full filler leaves. A fat double-corona may use 4 or
more leaves.

For cigar rolling the components should have the following moisture content:
Filler: nearly dry, but not so dry that it crumbles when handled
Binder: moist enough to be very flexible, but not damp
Wrapper: fully hydrated, slightly damp You can increase leaf moisture using a fine mist
of water, and then allowing it to absorb. Very thin leaf will hydrate in less than a
minute. Very thick leaf (such as CT Broadleaf) may need to be held in a plastic bag
overnight.

As with all Whole Leaf Tobacco products, this leaf is shipped in thermal sealed
vapor-proof bags and arrives in the proper moisture content for working.

One pound of cigar filler should make about 30 - 50 x 5" cigars.
