Wrappers A-Z: Sumatra


Sumatra - this is where it gets complicated for me. Sumatra is a sub-species of "Black Tobacco", the tobacco used in cigars. But there are several different types of wrapper leaf grown in Indonesia/Java/Sumatra and depending on manufacturer, the description "Sumatra" may mean a Sumatra leaf or it may mean a wrapper from the Sumatra region (TBN, Connecticut Shade, VBN, etc.).

That said I dislike a lot of cigars that uses "this" wrapper. The bad ones I find sour and cloying and the bad taste coats the tongue and makes it hard to try another cigar. This can make a great cigar or a horrible one. This seems to be the more abundant wrapper leaves on the market.
