**Nicaragua Habano Viso Color: dark brown Thickness: moderate Veins: moderate Grade: filler Typical Size: ~14" x 7"
Comments: Aged 4 years, this cigar filler has an earthy, woody flavor with notes of chocolate and pepper. Born of Cuban seed, Habano Viso is a stout yet mellow filler slightly milder than it's counterpart, Habano Ligero. It still packs a punch.
Intact leaf strips also serve as a tasty wrapper when fully hydrated. 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 comes in proper moisture content for working, but additional moisture might be needed to make the wrapper more pliable and elastic for wrapping.
One pound of cigar filler should make about 30 - 50 x 5" cigars. Wholesale quantities are available. Wholesale price will be based on quantity.
All of our tobacco is sold by the pound. The price reflects the cost per pound of tobacco unless otherwise noted.
