This tobacco is Flue Cure processed like most Virginia type tobacco. First priming means the leaves from the lowest part of the plant are harvested first. These leaves get much less sunlight than upper leaves so they are typically thinner than upper leaves. This tobacco serves two purposes...one, since it is a thinner leaf, it burns easier than thicker leaves. Two, this tobacco provides for a very smooth tasting result.
Also known as "Cutters", this tobacco can be blended with other tobaccos just to assist in burning ability. There is a limited quantity of this leaf as it is the most sought after grade by large manufacturers.
All of our tobacco is sold by the pound. The price reflects the cost per pound of tobacco unless otherwise noted.
As with all of our tobaccos, this leaf is hand harvested to assure the finest quality available.
