Our Ecuadorian Cuban Seed Seco Wrapper whole leaf tobacco is one of the finest tobacco wrappers available on the market today. This leaf has a thin, medium-cocoa colored body that easily lends itself to stretching and rolling. Veins are very thin, which also allows for a perfect roll.
In comparison to our Glasgow Magistrate Wrapper, our Blind Monkey Wrapper or our Picaroon Wrapper, this leaf is as thin and light as they come, and it is world renowned for is fine cigar wrapper qualitied. Old-fashioned tobacco farmers in Ecuador grow this leaf from Cuban seed under shady conditions. Generally, producers grow shade tobacco under shade tents or in regions with constant cloud cover, which gives this particular leaf its tender, thin body.
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.
