Nyala is a medium bodied blend made of Malawi burley with a hint of perique, Brazil tobaccos and a little amount of Havana cigar leaf. A well balanced mixture with decent chocolate notes, and the nice and spicy taste of the Havana leaf in the background. Smooth and complex.

This is a beautiful blend of Red Virginia, very small cube cut Burley, a touch of Perique and just enough Brazil and Havanna leaf to give it extra spice.. It has a very delicate chocolate and perhaps nuts flavouring. The cigar leaf is never overpowering but suits the base blend very well and adds layers of extra taste. This one is highly recommended.

A very complex blend, highly worth to be tried once in life. Tan ready rubbed at appearance, it develops a very nice smell of chocolate and fruit, which melt and chase each other into a delicous feeling and prepare you to the following and ineluctable, delicate and harmonious though multilayered and complex taste, revealing its wonderful and enormous potential: describing it may need lots of word but I will use just one: TRY IT. Nyala is completely different from all the other (10) Foundations and other HU's tobaccos, keeps features all along the smoke, never faints nor bores nor becomes harsh or bitter... still good even if/when you relight your pipe. Its greatest value is simply to be much different from (I expect) what you've smoked till now ... and if not, I'm glad for you ! Compare it to Director's Cut, another masterpiece from Hans (Wiedemann). Use a medium to large bowl. 4 stars and more ... BRAVO Hans (Wiedemann). Lord, now I wonder what he may blend next !

Nyala is one of the new blends from Hu Tobacco. I smoked it first at Lohmar Pipeshow and I`m really enthusiastic. It`s a mixture made of Virginia, Burley, Perique, Havanna and Brasil tobaccos. It`s a medium bodied blend of ready rubbed flakes, cube cut and ribbon cut. The color is deep brown and it burns very well and not hot. Nyala gives you a great and powerful taste of chocolate tones from the Burley mixed with a little fruitness of the Perique and nice sweet tones of the Red Virginias. The Havanna and Brasil leaf are playing a main role but in perfect balance to the other components They are not dominant but striking and gives the blend the special character. But Nyala is never a cigar taste blend. It´s absolutly refined and on the other side also powerful. In my opinion one of the best blends in that genre. Thanks Hu Tobacco for another high-class blend

4 of 4 stars no question.
