Joschi’s Oriental Sunrise. Our Joschi is a calm but jovial type. He doesn‘t much like to raise attention to his person, but he‘s always present. Joschi prefers natural or slightly aromatized tobaccos. This classic oriental blend is just after his fancy. A creamy Virginia Broken Flake forms the basis. It has been mixed with equal parts of Louisiana Perique, Kentucky Burley and Samsoun Oriental, which breathe a whole new life into the Virginia. The flavored tobaccoes, especially the very expressive Samsoun Oriental, make for a wonderfully uncomplicated and yet interesting blend which develops its unique taste without the use of additional flavorings. This is how good tobacco can taste on its own. A blend for the calm and quiet bon vivant as pleasure needs no words.

Mild to Medium Extremely Mild Mild to Medium Pleasant to Tolerable

I've had to smoke a bit of this before deciding how to rate and describe it. Only high quality tobaccos were used here. The Kentucky burley has a slight pistachio flavor and light, light sweetness with a very slight earthiness to it. It's as light a Kentucky burley flavor as can be and yet, it compliments the other flavors nicely. Without it, the mixture would be very boring. The perique is very mildly spicy with some raisin and figs, and plays almost at the same level as the burley does. The Orientals are woody, tasty and medium; this is not an Oriental-bomb. I like the natural medium sweetness of the Virginia which sets the base for the other ingredients. It's an all day, tasty, creamy smoke that especially goes well with tea and coffee. I prefer to smoke it in a big bowl to get the nuance of the varying flavors. Well worth smoking for anyone who wants a mild to medium tobacco blend.

This one became my go-to tobacco instantly - if I'm not in the mood for aromatics, I smoke 'Joschi's'.

No surprises here - you get all the characteristics of each tobacco used: creamy virginia, nutty burley, stingy perique, aetherical samsoun. (Only highest quality tobaccos were used!) What's special about this blend: you can actually taste all tobaccos used! Yet it adds up to a very harmonic and pleasant smoking experience: a simple but very honest tobacco blend. Highly recommended!

The Joschi`s Oriental Sunrise is a very nice, mild and naturally blend. The sweet virginias and the oriental leaf are well balanced. So, the Joschi is a complex blend without tounge bite. The burley and the kentucky tobaccos are only in the background and gives this blend a nice body. I like this tobacco during the whole day because this blend needs no attention. Maybe in the evening or for a concentrating smoke, the Joschi`s is for me a bit too light. But this blend is recommended for smokers who like naturally tobacco without a high nicotin level. A very well made tobacco!

Joschi`s Oriental Sunrise is a classical orient blend with burley and perique.It`s a very uncomplicated blend with a beautifull sweet spice. The tobacco burns very well and you need no attention. It`s not a great blend for the evening. It`s a nice blend for the whole day.Not too strong, with a subtle flavour of pure tobacco.

Excellent selection, but it is way too mild to interest me. Nice virginia fundamental, the rest is a not exciting nuance. More like a "Va Light" smoke to me.
