Mild to Medium Mild Mild Pleasant to Tolerable

Extremely weak tobacco, yet some people say it is perfect for blends. Would recommend to someone who was sensitive to nicotine. Particularly I have the idea that Candido Giovanella is a national classic, so despite the "negative" points, it is a tobacco that deserves to be appreciated properly.

Pipe Used: Cured wood.

Purchased From: Tabacaria Falabella, São Paulo, SP - BR

Very Mild Very Mild Mild Very Pleasant

As you open the pouch, your senses are overwhelmed by its sweetness. It's fresh, very fresh from the pouch and a bit moisty, which I do not mind at all.

After smoking a full bow I didn't notice any tongue bite and it kept pretty cool.

By the end of the bow, I didn't notice any flavor change, didn't go sour or bitter at all. It leaves a nice and pleasant room smell, also on my beard. And although the aroma is pretty strong from the pouch, it does not get as strong when burning. In fact, it's a very very mild smell and taste.

I'm fairly tolerant to nicotine, so I couldn't tell if it was too mild or too much on the nicotine, as I've seen in some reviews here.

Overall, I enjoy a lot Candido Giovanella, notwithstanding the fact that it's not a top brand. It's cheap, honest and pleasant. If you are a beginner, as myself, you can't go wrong with it.

Cândido Giovanella is one of the oldest brands in Brazil. It is produced in the South state of Parana, with the best tobaccos planted in the country. If you only like or are in the mood for authentic English mixtures, don't smoke this tobacco. It's quite aromatic and have some chemicals that may hide the taste of great virginias produced in Brazil. Although you can feel the Cavendish in it. I think Brazilian brands are about the time to make a decent blend, because they have one of the best tobacco crops in the world, mainly in the South. It's a little bit sad to say that this blend is another example of good tobaccco gone down the drain. Not that is extremely awful but it could be much more by its raw materials. Nevertheless, it should be pointed out that it has a quite good room note, medium flavoring and taste. The strength is medium, due to a moderate grade of nicotine. In conclusion, I would say it is a good blend, very affordable and made with very nice tobacco.

Strong Strong Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

This Candido Giovanella Blend is that is sold in a White Pouch or in Bulk. It is also called as "Candido Giovanella White" and/or "Candido Giovanella Traditional".

This is the neutral type, unflavoured.

Is a blend of golden and dark Brazilian Virginias and some Black Cavendish Tobacco.

Sweet, Full fruity note, wet, slow burning (this is good for pipe smoking)

I consider it "a bit" stronger in Nicotine than desired. For this, I not give 3 stars, only 2.

Good Brazilian Tobacco.

Re-evaluation: In ecent pouchs that i bought, it seems even better, Strong tobacco flavour, slow burning wet. Now, 3 Stars for it.
