Top 5 Broadleaf Cigars
The Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro is a tobacco leaf that is widely used throughout the industry, it’s an all-time favorite of mine, as well as countless other cigar enthusiasts. What was once primarily used for binder and filler is now in high demand to be utilized as a wrapper leaf. The reason why I love this leaf so much, it’s dark, oily, rugged, rich, sweet and extremely flavorful, and it burns nice and slow. And, of course, you show know by now that I love the Liga Privada No. 9, one of my all-time favorite cigars that are made with this leaf. Since Halloween is dark, rich, gloomy, and scary the Broadleaf Cigars are a great addition to smoke one for the occasion.
