The famous tobacco growing area of the Dutch East India Company has been Lumadjang to this day. The leaf of these tobaccos is so beautiful that it is still being used as cigar wrapper. They are light in colour, and in cut form are of great "light-handedness." The traditional name is "Voorogst." Vooroogst is a delicacy manufactured to the old Dutch recipe, that is being deliberately offered without any additional flavourings in order to preserve the unique tobacco flavour.

Browsing a new-to-me online store, I came across this beauty. Made by German company Planta, under a Danish brand, offering a Dutch mixture. Weird enough for me, had to order a tin.

Opening which, the tin scent is of flowers and Turkish Delight, with a hint of spice in there. The leaf as such is a medium ribbon, coloured bright to medium brown. Moisture is on the lower end of what I am used to, so no drying time necessary.

Lights up well, maintenance is easy (just tamp down every now and then), and the flavour is sweet, spicy, and sports the occasional dry note of wood. There is a hint of Turkish Delight in there, too. I finish with very little dottle, a bright white ash, and no condensation at all. The room note is somewhat flowery, but has a bit of a good-cigar untertow to it.

I do need the occasional re-light, but apart from that I find this blend fascinating, unique, and well done. The aftertaste is mostly woodsy, with some sweetness lingering on. Don't let it burn too hot. A hot burn will get you a rather unwelcome note of cheap cigar. Keep it cool, and this is a wonderful smoke.

Addition, 2017-09-01: The more I get used to sipping this blend gently, the more enjoyment I get out of it. Up-rating to four stars, because if you apply yourself, this blend will apply itself, too. Not much in the way of variation, but great flavour throughout, with the spice coming through towards the later half.
