Medium to Strong Medium Medium Tolerable

Being a pipe smoker in Brazil, where it's hard to find most of the great range of pipe tobaccos existing in the world, one always end up trying some of this, avaiable in many places, at affordable cost. It's our "drugstore" tobacco for exelence. In my opinion, it stays in middle term between aromatic and non-aromatic tobacco. Definitly, it's not an english blend, but also not an full aromatic. The tin aroma is very sweet and it comes with right humidity. Easy to pack and light,it stays lit to the end of the bowl, with no bite at all, sometimes some harshness at the end, if you're not carefull. Better if smoked in a medium size bowl. An all-day smoke, honest, wich main characteristic being regularity.

This is a mild golden Virginia/Burley Mixture, with some golden cavendish tobaccos. It haves a liquor and Vanilla taste and flavour. Is a good tobacco for begginers, and in Brazil is the more easy to find, the main "Drugstore" Blend. However it is so-called "Tipo Ingles" (English Type), this is an uncertain info, since the true "English Mixtures" contains Latakia tobaccos and this not. However, this is an Aromatic Tobacco. The words "Tipo Ingles", "English Type" is because this is one of the more antique Blends in Brazil, and when it begins to be made, nearly 80 years ago, Brasil only had acess to aromatic mixtures that were imported from England. As many other Brazilian Tobaccos, from many companies, this is sold in a good aluminized paper pouch, that preserves the flavour of the tobacco.

Re-Evaluation: The Blend is modified, now, is less flavoured, bu remains still Good. 3 Stars.

It's been 10 years since I bought my first pipe, back in Brazil, and had my first bowl of Irlandez. Oh well! those were good times. It's really hard to find good tobacco there and I think many among us, Brazilians pipesmokers, have had their first puffs with Finamore tobaccos. So even if nowadays Irlandez woudn't be my first choice I can say that it is not a bad blend.

It comes in pouches and when you open up you can smell chocollate and vanilla. The cut is more like shaggy then ribbon. It packs well and it's easy to light, despite the moisture.

The smoke is consistent through the bowl, very sweet and hot. No much complexity here. The after smoke leaves a nice room note. And I would say that this tobaccos leaves a ghost in the pipe that remains for a long long time.

Medium Medium Medium Pleasant

Irlandez is a very, very tradicional blend in Brazil. My great grandfather and my grandfather smoked it and so do I, but not for tradition itself. This blend has a lot of personality in it, as the Virginia taste is a bit herbal and the hints of brandy tends to leave the impression of a fruity blend, which is not. Indeed, it is mildly flavored but has a lot of presence when exhaled, heavy sometimes in a sour, milky caramel note, that might be interpreted as a "stinky" note commonly found in milk flavored Goods. Its cut is fine very short ribbons, with bits varying in shape and color, generally golden and fresh but not moist. To me it is very pleasant, I would call it a half natural - half aromatic blend, made from good quality Virginias. Does not bite if well accomodated and gently puffed. It is not spectacular or amazing, but it has so much personality in it that it reserves respect. It's neutral enough to be smoked while drinking a decent smoked Leaf tea.

Very Mild Very Mild Extremely Mild (Flat) Very Pleasant

The tobacco until is beautiful, I removed it from the pouch and put it in an airtight jar, it has a neutral smell of smoke, but an extremely mild flavor, that with each passing day faded. Its cut is finely chopped, not enough to be a ribbon. The flavor is quite shallow, for either aromatic tobacco or for a neutral tobacco, therefore, leaves no aftertaste. Tends to warm the pipe but not enough to bite, just that those who are smoking "pilote" well and later you will see, not bite nor will warm the pipe...

Medium Mild to Medium Medium to Full Pleasant to Tolerable

Until then my favorite national tobacco, besides the moment in which I am smoking also I like the aroma in which it sends me slightly to the honey. In the matter of burning, taste in the mouth and aroma in the environment, I honestly have nothing to complain about.

Pipe Used: Cured wood.

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