The burley tobacco plant can grow up to a height of 1.5m and has a green color that is slightly lighter than that of Virginia tobacco. Burley tobacco requires heavier soils and more fertilizer than Virginia tobacco. The best Burley grows in the United States, Central America, Malawi, Uganda and Indonesia.
After harvesting, the air drying process removes most of the sugar from the Burley tobacco. This gives it its characteristic brown colour and a cigar-like taste. The cigarettes containing burley tobacco produce a dark and intense smoke.
Burley tobacco tastes dry and aromatic, similar to chocolate.
Usually, sugars such molasses or liquorice are added to the Burley tobacco to replace the natural sugar. It is combined with other types of tobacco, such as Virginia and Turkish tobacco, to produce an American-blend cigarette. Other flavours may also be added.
