2014.01.15 22:59 dlm04e Weekly Wednesday Knowledge Drop: Today Criollo!

This is a good article I found in Cigar Journal a while back.
Criollo – The Creole Tobacco
Nearly every cigar contains strong, sun-ripened Criollo tobacco. But is it just used in the filler? Is every Criollo sun-grown? How is it processed? We asked some experts.
I’m trudging across the reddish, sandy soil of the Vuelta Abajo in Pinar del Rio armed with a copy of the useful “Instructivo Técnico para el Cultivo del Tabaco” (Technical Instruction Manual for Tobacco Cultivation). Right at the start of the first chapter, among the descriptions of the origins, characteristics and agricultural uses of the different varieties of tobacco, you find the variedad tradicional de tabaco negro “Criollo”: the traditional Criollo variety of dark tobacco (in other words: Kri-o-yo). Even in Columbus’ day native Cubans were puffing away on rolls of the rich, at times sweetish, Criollo leaves. The word Criollo simply means “homeland seed”.
Quality begins in the field
In Cuba I learned that the robust Criollo, the Creole tobacco used in Havana fillers, is grown outside in the sun. It was designated the Habanensis variety as early as 1907. From 1937 onwards it was developed further at Cuba’s first Tobacco Research and Experiment Station in San Juan y Martinez and a special variety was created, the Corojo, for use as a wrapper leaf. Nowadays the Cubans call the Criollo tabaco de sol, i.e. sun-ripened or sun-grown.
Maya Selva, the grande dame of the cigar business, feels at home in the fields of her native Honduras. Petite but full of energy, she is wearing a curved Lady Panama hat and standing among giant tobacco plants, many of which tower high above her. She tells us, “With sun-grown tobacco it’s very important to determine the harvest time and the field, in other words the quality of the soil. We’ve been recording this data for more than 15 years. It’s essential to take great care while the plants are growing. When it comes to fermentation you can’t turn bad tobacco into good tobacco; it’s too late for that by then. In the Jamastran Valley we plant tobacco that gives us aroma and strength. The earth there is so fertile that we’ve never had problems with the tobacco’s burn quality despite its strength. That’s not the case with the soil types we have, for example, in Azacualpa (in the West of Honduras). Sun-grown tobacco is the key to a cigar blend that combines aroma, strength and burn quality. The soil, the seed, the year and the amount of care you take determine what you can expect from the tobacco.”
Criollo is not Criollo
Christian Eiroa of Camacho Cigars in Honduras is the type of man who likes to share his expertise with you. “With Criollo tobacco you don’t always know which Criollo people mean”, he says. “The word means ‘native to a region’. When people talk about Criollo these days they usually mean Criollo 98. It’s a fantastic variety with a big yield, and a wonderful color and aroma. When I smoke it myself I personally notice a strong ‘bite’. Some manufacturers don’t let the tobacco ferment fully, which makes the bite that much stronger. I like this tobacco because it’s versatile and easy to plant.”
Nestor Andres Plasencia, young in years but already a master of the art, sees it slightly differently. “Not every Criollo is sun-grown. We get excellent results planting the Criollo 98 as shade-grown tobacco. We like the color – especially in the middle part of the plant (viso). The aroma varies. We think that Criollo 98 tastes stronger than Corojo 99. The Criollo 98 is a very special tobacco which has a natural resistance to blue mold and the tobacco mosaic virus – it’s also moderately resistant to black shank (pata prieta). So we use it primarily to produce wrapper leaves which we plant in marquees.”
Nick Perdomo, a dynamic cigar tycoon with strong roots in Cuba, spends much of his time commuting between Nicaragua and Miami. “All our Criollo tobacco is sun-grown”, he says. “Direct sunlight helps to build up the essential oils and resins in the tobacco leaves, which in turn create the rich, deep taste and aromas.”
The higher up a leaf is on the conical tobacco plant, the greater its exposure to the sun and the stronger it will be. Tobacco leaves are divided into three categories: ligero is a strong, spicy leaf used for the filler (from the upper part of the plant), which gives a cigar strength and spice. Seco is the aromatic, medium-strength leaf used for the filler (from the middle of the plant), which gives the cigar its stability and consistency. At the bottom of the plant there is the volado – a light leaf for the filler and the cigar’s structure, which allows the cigar to burn easily. Starting from the top downwards the rows of leaves are called corona, centro gordo, centro fino, un y medio, libre de pie and mañanita.
Karlheinz Diekmann is responsible for raw tobacco procurement at the Villiger Group, which traditionally purchases fairly large quantities of Cuban dark, air-cured Criollo for its machine-made Short Filler. “The Cuban government banned the export of Cuban-grown wrapper and binder leaves in 2002”, he says. “The entire wrapper and binder production now goes into the local Long Filler production. Only filler tobacco is exported. We particularly like the Criollo’s dark brown color and its aromatic, earthy sweetness. Every tobacco is given a number to indicate its strength: the bigger the number, the stronger the tobacco. Strength is generally divided into three categories: F#1, F#2 and F#3; the F stands for ‘fortaleza’ (Spanish for ‘strength’).”
Fermentation
Karlheinz Diekmann goes on to say “Criollo varieties are all produced in a similar way. They can be sun-grown or shade-grown, in other words they can be used for the filler or the wrapper. The Criollo’s burn is generally very good.” The period of air-drying in the tobacco house (casa del tabaco) is actually the same for ligero, seco and volado – 50 days. After this they are processed differently. The first fermentation (comparable with wine fermentation) lasts 30 days for the ligero, and 25 for both the seco and volado. This is followed by selection (escogida) and initial sorting, after which the leaves are stripped from the stems (despalillo), re-sorted and put into bundles. The second phase of fermentation is 90 days for the ligero, 60 for seco, and 45 for volado. Once they have been aired and packed in bales (pacas) they are stored for maturation, which again is different for each type: ligero filler tobacco is left to mature for at least two years, in the case of seco it is 12 to 18 months, and volado, which is also used as a binder, matures for at least 9 months. Just as with wine – the longer they are left to age, the better.
Plasencia, who is just as much at home in Honduras as in Nicaragua, goes on to say, “In order to produce the beautiful colors that the Criollo 98 can give us, we have to ensure that we have the right conditions in the curing barns. We keep the humidity, temperature and air circulation strictly under control throughout the entire curing process.”
Fermentation, too, is very important to Plasencia. He says, “We separate the leaves according to their texture and put all the leaves of the same texture onto the same pilon (the stack of tobacco piled up for fermentation). The pilon’s exact temperature is checked constantly and the stack is rearranged several times. For example we stack all the seco leaves on one pilon, and the so called viso (the common term in Nicaragua and Honduras for the leaves which grow between the seco and ligero on the tobacco plant) on another. And the ligero leaves have their own pilon. This system allows each individual type of leaf to ferment better.”
For Perdomo the fermentation process for Criollo tobacco depends on the region in which the particular crop is grown. “The tobacco from the Jalapa Valley is a bit thinner than the tobacco which is grown in the Estelí region, and it’s down to the difference in the soil”, he says. “The Jalapa Valley has a sandy soil which produces somewhat thinner leaves with a sweeter taste and aromas. The soil in the Estelí region is thicker and clayey, which makes the leaves grow thicker and they are hence more full-bodied in strength”, he said.
Artur Kemper, Vice President of Tabacalera Perdomo, says “Criollo is a tobacco that grows particularly well in Nicaraguan soil. The way we cultivate it, each plant produces between 12 and 14 fully-grown leaves. That means it takes a total of 107 days from planting the seed through to harvesting the last corona leaves at the top of the plant.” On this point Nick Perdomo adds, “The key to successful fermentation, not just for our Criollo tobacco, but also for the other different types of tobacco we use, is that we only allow natural fermentation and our tobacco matures for at least three years before it is made into cigars.”
Superb cigars
Criollo is thus very versatile. Depending on the plant type and processing, it produces very good, reddish-brown, medium to strong tobacco which is at times “sweet and delicately spicy” (Artur Kemper). Christian Eiroa uses it for wrappers, binders or fillers. Plasencia rates the Criollo’s burn qualities highly. Criollo tobacco can be found in any number of premium cigars, of which the following are but a few: the Puro d’Oro, which has coffee and spice aromas, has a specially cultivated Dominican Yamasá wrapper. Nub Sungrown has a Habano wrapper from Nicaragua, which gives the cigar a full, rich taste and character. Villiger’s Karlheinz Diekman says, “Cuban Criollo gives all our Villiger blends their typical, aromatic, sweetish taste, combined with finely balanced strength. A typical product in which we use Cuban Criollo is the Villiger Export cheroot, also known as the ‘the small man’s Havana’.” Plasencias Criollos find their way into many exquisite blends such as the Plasencia Reserve Organic Linie. A particularly accomplished composition is the CAO Criollo: it combines a Criollo 98 Nicaraguan wrapper with the finest Nicaraguan Cuban Seed tobacco – a harmonious alliance between Cuba and Nicaragua. Once called a “perfect cigar” by the European Cigar Journal, it has big, earthy aromas and complex notes of walnut, sweet spices and leather. A long, remarkably clean finish brings delicate cinnamon and mint notes. We could name many more, from the Don Duarte Criollo from the Dominican Republic to the Mexican reference cigar, the La Casta Criollo, or the Cupido Criollo from Nicaragua, which is also home to the Episode 85 Don Pepin Garcia El Centurion. Or the especially accomplished Perdomo Reserve 10 Year Anniversary Criollo which is packed with rich, gentle flavors, a light, sweet taste of spice and a wonderful aroma. Wherever it grows today, whether in Nicaragua, Honduras or its homeland Cuba, you find countless enthusiasts and experts constantly searching for ways to preserve and improve this unmistakable tobacco – that mysterious essence of the tabaco negro Cubano.
TL;DR: Fuck yo couch.
