Especially the combination of the green Candela cover sheet and the spiral-rolled Jalapa cover sheet, both from Nicaragua, make this cigar something special.
The processing processes of the candela leaf differ considerably from other topsheets. During the drying process, the chlorophyll in the leaf is fixed, as long as the leaves are still very green and fresh. Candela cover leaves are harvested much earlier than other leaves; they are younger and thinner. This drying process takes 48 to 52 hours after harvest, while "normal" cigar tobacco matures and dries in 30 days. The chlorophyll, ie the green pigment in the leaf, is fixed at high temperatures, initially at 38 ° C until finally at 66 ° C, in the dry barns. Candela has a toasty and fresh aroma; it burns slower and has a white ash. The strength is mild to medium and since the taste is restrained, the flavor of aromas of the second cover sheet, as well as the binder and the inlay out more. It is this feature that makes the Black Market hooligan an interesting experience.
