Whole Leaf Tobacco Handling & Storage Tutorial

Whole Leaf Tobacco Handling & Storage Tutorial

Have you just received your order and now find yourself wondering about tobacco storage?  In this video, Louis Brains breaks down everything you need to know about the handling and storage of your freshly delivered tobacco!

 

When you order fronto or any other wrapper grade tobacco leaf, you will receive it in bundles.  A bundle is also referred to as a ‘hand of tobacco’.

 

 

Your leaf will be packaged in a clear plastic bag, that has wholes cut in it for aeration.  holes are put in the bag so that the tobacco can breathe while it ships to you.  Why bother to go through the extra effort?  Because if you store fresh leaf in a tightly sealed bag, it will begin to mold.

 

When you get your package of tobacco, we recommend that you re-use the bag that it comes in for ongoing storage in a cool, dark and dry place.  You do not need to tightly close the bag, just folding the plastic underneath, or even letting it sit open is just fine.

 

If you leave your tobacco out of the bag, you will find that it dries to a crisp in short time.  While you don’t have to be afraid of your tobacco drying up, you need to be really careful handling in this state.  If you find your tobacco has dried up, grab a handy spray bottle and mist with water on both sides.  Return to your leaf in about 10-15 min. and you will be able to handle it as if fresh.  You will want it to dry just to the point that the leaf becomes fully pliable with no excess moisture… this is when it’s ready for you to roll up, smoke or do whatever else you need!

 

If ordering some filler tobacco for cigarettes it will arrive in bundled loosely in the bag (not tied at the stem, like the hands/bundles I mentioned earlier).  You would also want this leaf to be pliable when you go to shred it, if you prefer it all be of the same consistency.  Many people prefer their cigarette tobacco to be shredded to 1.5 mm sized pieces.  To do this efficiently you can use a manual tobacco cutter (click here for more info), the electric Powermatic Tobacco Shredder (click here for more info), or you can improvise and use a device from your kitchen.  Make your own cigarettes so they function just like the ones you buy at the convenience store by using cigarette tubes and an electric cigarette injector (click here for more info.)

 

Filler tobacco for cigars is delivered in pristinely flattened stacks, ready to roll up with your preferred wrapper and binder leaves.  You do not need to be concerned with shredding cigar filler leaf, as it is never shredded.  Cigar filler leaves are rolled up length wise inside of the wrapper leaf.  When hand rolling a cigar, as many of these leaves as possible are compressed together before being rolled (or to your personal preference).  Be sure to pick up the appropriate accessories if you want to make your own hand rolled cigars… it will save you a lot of time and make your life so much easier!

  1. HI IM INTERESTED IN YOUR PRODUCTS LOVE YOUR VIDEOS I WAS INTERESTED IN QB 52 BUT WHAT IS THE LAST PRICE I PLAN ON ORDERING 2000-3000 POUNDS A WEEK BUT I WANT TO TRY 1 ORDER ON 100 POUNDS FIRST BUT WHAT IS THE PRICE AND WHAT TYPE OF LEAF YOU MOSTLY SELL IN NEWYORK

    • Great to hear from you! The most popular leaves in NYC are QB52 Fronto, and Dark Air Cured Fronto ALO & GR. Give us a call at 802.776.8983 and we’d be happy to discuss pricing for the amounts that you need. Talk soon Abdul!

    • I wondered the same thing when I compared the two cigars for the review. I was told by Glen Case that it was the exact same blend and from smoking both cigars back to back, the flavors are near identical.I can only make a few guesses. There’s two years in age between those two cigars in the picture. It’s possible they are using the same leaf from a different crop year. The wrapper color may vary from box to box. The Vengeance could have lost some of the oils in the wrapper during that time. I honestly can’t remember what the Vengeance looked like when I purchased the box. Either way, the Vengeance is gone and the GC Signature is a great cigar.
