Is leaf color important?
The color of leaf you use for a cigar wrapper can actually indicate what kind of flavor you will get. Leaf colors can change based on how the leaves were cultivated, and what kind of curing and fermentation process the leaves went through. Typically, lighter leaves produce a milder flavor, with flavor becoming more robust with darker leaves. Keep in mind this is a general rule to follow and is not perfectly reliable.
