Our Bruin XLD tobacco is one of our darkest leaves with a color that’s similar to an espresso brown. This leaf is a shade or two darker than its sister leaf, the Bruin XLR. Along with the dark brown color, you’ll get a desirable earthy aroma and great oil and stretch. Sweet tones of honey with a little bit of kick mixed in complete this great leaf. While this leaf is not graded, holes, rips and other defects are found at a minimum on this particular leaf. Did we mention it’s one of our easiest leaves to work with?
Dark air cured tobacco is generally cured in open or exposed barns for one to two months at a time. Thanks to this curing process, these leaves have a distinctive, pleasing aroma. Our Bruin XLD is a ‘dark air cured tobacco’ used in many different applications.
As with all of our retail sales, these leaves are unbound and separated from each other. If you’d prefer your order to be untouched and bound together in ‘hands’ by the farmer, we’re happy to accommodate you. Just let us know. Large and wholesale orders are shipped in bound ‘hands’ of tobacco.
