The new warehouse will be located directly across the street from La Gran Fabrica Drew Estate, the large factory the company uses to roll such premium brands as Liga Privada, Herrera Esteli, Undercrown and Chateau Real, as well as its infused line of Acid cigars. Drew explained that the new warehouse, which is approximately 64, square-feet, will be used for tobacco classification and sorting as well as tobacco fermentation, tasks that are now being done off-site. The new building, in other words, will boost the level of control the company has over how it processes and handles its extensive tobacco reserves. The modern facility will be two stories, with sorting and classification set to take place on the second story, fermentation on the first. Nicholas Melillo, executive vice president of international operations for Drew Estate, says the humidification drums, currently in use by the Oliva Tobacco Co. Each wheel, which is about 15 feet tall, can hold up to 2, pounds of tobacco leaves.

Curing of tobaccoVIDEO ON THE TOPIC: How Cigar Tobacco is Sorted & Fermented
Log In. The oldest known method in use is simply cutting off the stalk at the ground using a curved knife. The other way to harvest tobacco leaves originated in the nineteenth century.
They started to harvest the tobacco plant by pulling individual leaves off the stalk as they ripened, tobacco leaves ripen from the ground upward, so tobacco plant may be pulled several different times before the tobacco plant is entirely harvested. This is also known as "Cropping" or "Priming". These are terms used for pulling leaves off tobacco. The first crop at the very bottom of the stalks are called "sand lugs" as they are often against the ground and are coated with dirt splashed up when it rains.
Curing Tobacco Leaves Tobacco farmers refer to the drying of the leaf as curing. There are 3 main ways of curing tobacco. Curing methods vary with the type of tobacco grown. The tobacco barn design varies accordingly. Air-cured Tobacco Leaves Air-cured tobacco is carried out by hanging the tobacco in a well-ventilated barns, where the tobacco is allowed to dry over a period of four to eight weeks.
Air-cured tobacco is generally low in sugar content, which gives the tobacco smoke a light, smooth, semi- sweet flavor. These tobacco leaves usually have a high nicotine content. Flue-cured Tobacco Leaves Flue-cured tobacco started by stringing the tobacco into tobacco sticks, which were hung from tier-poles in curing barn's "kilns".
All flue-cured barns have flues which run from external fed fire boxes, which heat-cures the tobacco without exposing it to smoke, slowly raising the temperature over the course of the curing process. The procedure will generally take about a week.
Flue-cured tobacco generally produces cigarette tobacco. Cigarette tobacco usually has a high content of sugar, with medium to high levels of nicotine. Sun-cured Tobacco Leaves Most to all sun-cured tobacco comes from countries that produce oriental leaves, such as Turkey, Greece, and the Republic of Macedonia.
The sun-cured tobacco process works just how it sounds. The tobacco is placed in the sun uncovered, and is dried out naturally. Generally, oriental tobacco is low in sugar and nicotine and is very popular for cigarettes. Fermenting A. It can be done by heaping the tobacco into large piles called pylons that raise the temperature and humidity, or by use of a kiln with a heater and humidifier.
Under the raised temperature and humidity, enzymes in the leaf cause it to ferment. It is not necessary to spray a fermenting solution on the leaf as some suggest - the enzymes will do it naturally. Sometimes this is also referred to as curing. This system of maturing tobacco leaves came from the days when tobacco was shipped by sail.
The ship would sit in port for a few weeks, with very humid temperatures and bails stacked tight together. When the tobacco reached it's destination, it was found to smell and taste sweeter. There are two methods of fermenting, stacking and kiln fermenting. Stacking The stacking tobacco fermentation method is used by large growers. Stacks of tobacco weighing around lbs each are wrapped in burlap and allowed to "sweat".
The internal temperature is closely monitored. When it reaches degrees, the stack is broken down to release tar, ammonia, and nicotine. The stack is torn down and rebuilt several times until the temp will no longer reach degrees. The stems are they stripped and stacked in a cooler place 65 degrees to age for a time 6 weeks to 6 years. Kiln fermenting This is what the smaller grower must use if he or she wants to smoke the fruits of their harvest any time soon.
The kiln is a small, insulated container with an artificial heat source that helps to simulate the fermentation. The leaves are placed in the kiln with the lid shut. Kiln fermenting lasts about 4 to 6 weeks and the relative humidity must be carefully maintained during this time. A short aging period will follow of 4 to 6 weeks or longer until the leaves can either be rolled into cigars or cut for cigarette, pipe, or chewing tobacco. If still too wet lower the humidity. If you put a hygrometer in the chamber you will find that at 70 percent relative humidity they will be very pliable but dry.
That is about what you'll want. Smoking uncured tobacco is unpleasant and dangerous as the nicotine and ammonia contained can be fatally high, not to mention it will taste like your smoking leaves from your front yard.
Renovations were extensive, with separate tobacco-cutting, fermenting, filling, and packing places constructed with walls made of fibreboard and brick. The factory employees were forced to live and work in the factory, unable to leave the building as the soundproof, purpose-built rooms were locked by the ringleaders from outside. Following an alert from the European Anti-Fraud Office OLAF , authorities established that the criminal group — primarily Romanian and Moldavian citizens — sourced their materials from abroad, such as machines, tobacco, filters, cigarette papers and cigarette packs. Some of the material was stored in Hungary and used in the dismantled factory; the rest was sent abroad. During the investigation at the premises, officers found one assembly line in operation and another under construction. They also discovered apparatus for tobacco cutting, fermentation and cigarette packing.

Tobacco is the raw material we are passionate about. We primarily import it from the best growing areas in North America, Zimbabwe and Europe. We have our own experienced tobacco specialists on site to select and purchase of the tobaccos. As certified experts, they inspect the goods, take samples and after all that only accept the best quality.
While the art of cigarmaking has been largely unchanged for centuries, savvy cigar companies have always been watchful for breakthroughs in agricultural techniques, production methods, or merchandizing and marketing products in order to increase their tobacco yields, produce better cigars or raise awareness of their brands in the marketplace. One company that has been a leader in adopting emerging technologies is Tabacalera Perdomo. Since founding the company in , Nick Perdomo Jr. In the mids, Perdomo celebrated the first time he bought an entire bale of tobacco. More than 20 years later, Tabacalera Perdomo grows tobacco on more than 1, acres in Nicaragua, producing millions of pounds of the valuable leaf annually. Complete vertical integration allows Tabacalera Perdomo to stockpile ample tobacco reserves to ensure the quality and consistency of its cigars while avoiding back orders, and it also allows the company to have complete control over the costs associated with being a cigarmaker. Kemper appreciated them for their unique, full-flavored Nicaraguan taste profile and often recommended the Perdomo brands to his customers. At the Retail Tobacco Dealers of America trade show in San Antonio, Kemper met Perdomo and was struck by the personal touch he used while selling cigars. Later in the year, Perdomo offered Kemper a job as an in-house salesperson. In , after Kemper was promoted to national sales director, he was instrumental in building a top-notch team of factory direct sales representatives.

Watts and Thomas B. The warehouses were built between and as part of an aggressive building campaign by the American Tobacco Company for storing, aging, and fermenting tobacco for cigarette manufacture. The Dukes of Durham are legendary figures in the history of the tobacco industry.
This little book is intended for the man who uses tobacco. While there is a very extensive literature concerning tobacco, yet it is surprising how few books there are written expressly for the smoker. Much has been written concerning culture, production and manufacture; the historical and anecdotal aspects have been catered for; pamphlets and books abusing and denouncing the use of tobacco are plentiful; but the smoker will find it difficult to get a book just giving him the facts concerning tobacco and smoking, which he ought to know, and omitting matters, which, although interesting, are not necessary. This little book is an attempt to fulfil that purpose; and it is felt that no apology is needed for its appearance. If the average user of tobacco is questioned concerning the matters treated in the following pages, he will be found ignorant of them. This ought not be so. The custom of tobacco smoking is so general and so intimate a part of the daily life of the great majority of men, that a better acquaintance with the plant, its qualities, uses and effects, should be cultivated and welcomed. No claim is made for originality. The facts here stated have been gathered from various [Pg 8] sources and the only credit claimed is for putting them together in a concise and consecutive form. The object aimed at is to give information. The man who uses tobacco daily should know what he is doing.
Tobacco Leaf Harvesting, Curing, and Fermenting
The comforting world of premium cigars can sometimes seem bogged down by endless choices, confusing messages and opinions posing as fact. It can be a complicated, confusing hobby, even for a longtime smoker. This list is by no means a Ten Commandments of cigar smoking. They are made of one thing and one thing only—tobacco. Pure, unadulterated tobacco. Not a single leaf is chemically treated or artificially altered for taste. In fact, few consumable products are so natural.
Humidity and Tobacco Drying
It is necessary to cure tobacco after harvesting and before it can be consumed. Curing tobacco has always been a process necessary to prepare the leaf for consumption because, in its raw, freshly picked state, the green tobacco leaf is too wet to ignite and be smoked. In recent times, traditional curing barns in the United States are falling into disuse, as the trend toward using prefabricated metal curing boxes has become more and more prevalent. Temporary curing boxes are often found on location at tobacco farms. Curing and subsequent aging allow for the slow oxidation and degradation of carotenoids in the tobacco leaf. This produces various compounds in the tobacco leaves that give cured tobacco its sweet hay, tea, rose oil, or fruity aromatic flavor that contributes to the "smoothness" of the consumed product.

Простое число. Джабба посмотрел на таблицу, что стояла на мониторе, и всплеснул руками.
Иди на площадь, взмолился он мысленно. Тень Гиральды падала на площадь, как срубленная гигантская секвойя. Халохот внимательно проследил взглядом всю ее длину. В дальнем конце три полоски света, прорываясь сквозь прорези, четкими прямоугольниками падали на брусчатку мостовой.
Никогда не слышал об. - Никто не слышал. Это было сделано тайно. - Мидж, - сказал Бринкерхофф, - Джабба просто помешан на безопасности ТРАНСТЕКСТА.
