Mild Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

If you ever come to visit Austria this one is a must! It is one of the longest running brands here and that´s for a reason! When I purchased it for the first time is was really surprised how cheap it was. The pouch aroma reminds me of hay, staples, meadows etc It is easy to fill, easy to light and burns fast and hot. The taste is just excellent! Surprisingly mild with a nice natural sweetness, just a little floral topping. At midbowl it turns to roasted nuts and ther´s allways a natural tobacco taste in it. This perfect blend for beginners and very suitable for small pipes and also smokable in "Gesteckpfeifen". I use it to mix it with blends that are hard to stay lit as well. The only drawback is the roomnote that reminds me of something i shouldn´t mention here... Highly recomended!!!

Medium Very Mild Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

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.

Medium Extremely Mild Medium Tolerable

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.
