T-13 cigar filler is an experimental cross of Criollo 98 and Piloto Cubano that were grafted. This type took 13 years to develop. Flavor notes, nutty, cinnamon, nutmeg, cocoa, and cherries. The burn was excellent and it left a noticeable chocolate aftertaste.
This product is of a Viso priming which means thinner leaves, higher combustibility, and lower nicotine. Some forum members at FairTradeTobacco recommend this product be blended with our Cibao Valley Vuelta Abajo Seco.
As with all Whole Leaf Tobacco products, the leaf is packaged in vapor-proof bags and in perfect order for working when it arrives to you. The leaf will remain in perfect condition for at least a year if unopened. Once opened, any unused leaf can be saved in this condition by re-using the packaging. Simply fold the opened end and sealing it with tape.
