One of the original Cuban tobaccos – Corojo 99 is perhaps one of the most important tobaccos in our inventory.
Corojo 99 is a much more disease resistant variation of the El Corojo heirloom tobacco. It is commonly used as a mother to produce hybrid tobaccos.
Corojo 99 is a tobacco that is exclusively dedicated to cigars. It produces medium sized leaves that cure and ferment to a nice brown color.
Use and Flavor:
Corojo 99 produces a medium body tobacco. It is commonly used as filler and binder for cigar blends. Recently it has found its way into the production of cigar wrappers due to its size.
