Among the rarest premium tobaccos, leaves can sprout above the Ligero when conditions are especially favorable. Only about 10% of tobacco plants end up with Medio Tiempo leaves, and even the ones that get them only sprout 2-3 each. That makes them hard to get in large quantities…but oh, is the flavor worth it! Thanks to all that extra sun the included Connecticut Habano upper leaves get, they’re oily, rich in flavor, and have the high sugar content that makes La Gloria Cubana Medio Tiempo so sweet. Additionally, the cigar’s blend uses an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper over hand-selected Honduran, Nicaraguan, and Dominican tobacco.
