Last night I received a surprise package from BigBonner. Several leaves of Penn. Wrapper, and Maryland. The Penn. Wrapper looks great Larry! Thin veins, nice reddish brown hue, and long leaf. Compared to WLT's Penn. Binder, it looks like a similar leaf, but BigBonner's leaf has characteristics that would make it a better wrapper.

A special thanks to him for sharing a special leaf.

Larry's Penn. leaf seems to be a different variety than the WLT's Penn binder. WLT's binder is wider, thicker veins, which is perfect for binder. Bigbonner's Penn leaf is long and narrow, thinner veins, and thus a better wrapper. I love this deep red hue. It's possible this is a different seed variety. It looks similar to pictures of long red.

Don at WLT and Larry are the only two people I buy from. Don's leaf is very high quality, and I'm a cigar guy. Larry has Ct. broadleaf and havana that I like. They're both good guys.
