A slow, long lasting smoke, contains Virginia, latakia and perique. A strong taste with a mild flavour. Supplied in a 50 grams tin. Similar to Dunhill Nightcap.

Charatan - Eventide.

This was supplied by my pal Martin McGahey of McGahey's tobacconists (I write for them). And, I love it!

So, it's clamed to be similar to Dunhill's Nightcap? Well, that casts a big shadow!

In keeping with Nightcap it isn't a stertorous Lat Bomb. It's a weighty, heavy, smoke, with lots of flavour, but we're not talking about anything harsh, or uncontrolled. As well as the Latakia there's a notable taste from the Perique. This gives a zesty, fruitiness, on top of the heavier tasting Latakia. Heavier; it isn't overly sharp or cutting, like some of the varietals, but rich and full. The Virginia's the platform and base, but the flavour is outweighed by the other two; in comparison the Latakia and Perique are much more formidable. Although full tasting, it's also very smooth. The burn's standard is high: not fast, cool in temperature, creating a comfortable, bite-free, smoke.

Nicotine: above medium. Room-note: not great for others, but I quite like it!

Charatan Eventide? Wonderful. Highly recommended:

Four stars.
