This wrapper is a true Maduro in that is has been aged 5 to 7 years. The newest bale has a little white dust on it that looks like mold, but it's not. The white dust is simply the minerals in the leaf migrating to the leaf surface. Once the wrapper is moistened for wrapper preparation, the dust disappears. The leaf has a sweetness and dark oily appearance associated with a true Maduro.
This Maduo is from Cuban-seed and grown in Ecuador. Maduro wrapper from this region is ideal for producing an oily rich, earthy and semi-sweet wrapper.
As with all Whole Leaf Tobacco products, this leaf comes in proper moisture content for working, but addional moisture might be needed to make the wrapper more pliable and elastic for wrapping.
