Fronto Dark Air Cured J1

Categories: , ,


The Fronto Dark Air Cured  J1 is often a very dark, very thick air cured tobacco leaf. The J1 Grade name signifies that it was grown southwest of Louisville, in Kentucky, USA. This leaf is often one of the largest and one of the darkest leaves we carry, but as with any natural leaf, this can vary slightly.  This leaf has a very dark chocolate brown color on top, with a lighter color underneath. Due to its large size, it is to be expected that there will be slightly more damages than other Dark Air Cured.

Leaf preference varies from location to location, so it is always recommended that you try a selection of a few different leaves, to see which you, or your customers, prefer most! Each type of leaf has 1/4lb sample sizes available.

Fronto Dark Air Cured J1

Our Fronto Dark Air Cured J1  is one of many varieties of leaf called Grabba, Red Rose, Red Leaf, Fronto, Funta, and other similar terms that mean that all mean the same thing – that it is a dark thick tobacco leaf, popular in the Caribbean, commonly used for crushing or blending. It provides a strong, bold smoke that is often referred to as ‘hot’, or with a strong ‘hit’.

This type of leaf is commonly sold either by the leaf or by the pound in many stores. Although primarily used to mix with, it is also possible to roll with some of the thinner varieties of Dark Air Cured leaf.
