The Reasons Behind Variable Tobacco Prices
News Desk, via the Cigar Journal (@cigarjournalmag)
There are several reasons for the variable costs of tobacco, according to a recent Cigar Journal article. The finest of tobaccos are the broadleaf varieties which are used to wrap cigars. For instance, Connecticut Broadleaf Tobacco is one of the most expensive varieties used by cigar manufacturers.
“Grown under shade cloth in Connecticut, Nicaragua and Indonesia, wrapper-grade leaf is expected to be visually appealing, consistent and without defects; the process to reach top grade is slow, labor-intensive, and expensive. In the case of Connecticut shade, it is only used for wrapper – and cultivated using specific methods to hit that top grade target.”
Other factors that influence tobacco prices include location, yield, demand, sourcing, and time involved in the process. Additionally, there is a large amount of waste in the process required to get the final product. Any damage to the leaves in the field drastically reduces value, requiring some to be left in the field. The sorting process culls the veiny leaves, and after the year long fermenting process, each leaf will only wrap two premium cigars.
