I was given Landtabak (both Regular and Spezial) as a gift by friends coming back from an holiday in Austria (Adriano and Paola, thanks again).

Spezial (red-yellow pouch)

The civilized rendition of Landtabak. Opening the pouch there's a clear topping of menthol, or something similar (at first sniff it vaguely remind of those Medicated Snuff Tobaccos!) which adds a little green freshness that partially, yet very pleasantly, translates in the smoke and also room note gets benefits; unluckily the topping vanishes from the pouch in a few days. The basic tobacco seems more or less the same of its brother “Regular/brown” but softer to the touch (little to none stems), with higher moisture and a different balancing: rounder, smoother and milder. The meadow-grazing vibe is still there but on a new dimension: more a fresh cut grass note, rather than a generic hay-straw-earth dominated flavor. Definitely Spezial is more refined and interesting than "regular-brown" LT, recommended.

In my former review to Land Tabak I have put some premises and set some comparisons between LT and his brother Landtabak Spezial.

Let's go to the smoking experience.

A different Il Duca - large bowled half bent black sandblasted fancy Dublin - has been used.

The same easy lighting and behaviour as LT. But LS is just smoking differenly: the main player is the Oriental weed. Spicy and flowerish, some faint soapy and peppery notes to the tongue and the palate. Not sweet but soft and pleasant. The nose is tickled by spicy notes. The other leaves are just supporting the soloist. The Kentucky makes itself show here and there, mostly after mid-bowl, but with elegance. The strenght is a notch milder, the body is more refined and elegant.

Just like LT, LS smokes dry until the bottom leaving a brighter ash.

Recommended. Landtabak Spezial may just have a greater appeal than its brother.
