African Leaf

The Republic of Cameroon (French République du Cameroun) is a country of central and western Africa. The Sumatra seed leaf known as Cameroon(not to be confused with Indonesian brand) is cultivated in this African part of the region. The leaf is a greenish-brown to dark brown with a unique grain called tooth and is usually used for full-flavored cigars.  This wrapper is very expensive and supplies are limited due to a difficult fermentation process and other tobacco related curing issues. These rich and oily leaves are sought after by nearly every cigar maker in the world but are only sold to a select few which is why Cameroon wrappers are now grown in Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
