Clan Shaw - Mozambique
An aromatic blend without Latakia consisting of Smyrna, Mozambique and Virginia tobaccos. Will appeal to pipe smokers of English and Domestic styles.

What a nice surprise! This tobacco has a nice room aroma, a very light & subtle topping (like dry cocoa), and a delicacy of flavor without being weak. It has a warm, tasty VA element with an indefinable but different flavor (perhaps the Mozambique leaf). As the bowl progresses, a mild butterscotch flavor forms in the mid-range. There is a slight, unsweetened cocoa-like bitterness that is very nice. The room aroma has a brie-like scent that doesn't touch the flavor, making me suspect some matured Virginia. This really grew on me at the mid-point, as the VAs deepen and sweeten. There is a touch of sharpness now on the top end, might call it zesty, but it doesn't really taste like anything, except maybe ginger. Brown sugar flavor kicks in in lower-mid and upper-bass ranges. Medium-light body, but quite satisfying. Definitely a blend to try.
