Maryland 609 is a Burley type tobacco with a thinner lead – making it much more palatable than full Burley. while still providing a full tobacco flavor. Whole Leaf Tobacco sells our Maryland 609 in the traditional air cured variety. Our Maryland 609 is grown on an Organic farm in Wisconsin. (Maryland 609 is also commonly grown today in Pennsylvania)
The specific Maryland 609 Air Curing method allows nitrogen to be removed from the leaf, leaving a very smooth and fully flavored tobacco.
Expect your delivery to be a thin to medium bodied leaf.
Maryland blends well with other tobaccos. Combining with additional flue cured Flue Cured and a little Turkish/Oriental provides a full flavored American style blend.
