Our Bruin XLR tobacco is a great option for those looking for a dark, high quality leaf. This leaf is a shade or two rosier than its sister leaf, the Bruin XLD. Along with the dark red color, you’ll get a desirable earthy aroma and great oil and stretch. This leaf is not graded; however, 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 XLR 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.
