Virginia Flue Cured Tobacco
All English blends of cigarette use 100% Virginia tobacco. American blends use about 70%, the balance is made up of burley tobacco. All “Hooka Pipe” tobacco is also Virginia tobacco. All the best cigarettes use about 40% of the finest virgina tobacco to give the smoke flavor and smoothness. The balance of the cigarette is made up of lower quality “filler tobaccos” or rolled and cut Tobacco Stem.
Also known as Golden Leaf Tobacco, Virginia Flue Cured Tobacco is one of the most commonly used tobacco leaves in the tobacco industry, as it is a major component in cigarette blends for almost every type of cigarette, and is used as hookah and pipe tobacco all over the world.
You can enjoy this tobacco leaf knowing that it is the same as it was when the farmer was picking it off the stalk other then being cured and pressed to make it easier to handle and ship.
Although this tobacco leaf is “uncut”, we do not consider it wrapper leaf because it is not handled in the same fashion as the whole cigar leaves and Virginia tobacco is not used for wrapper leaf.
