Mild Mild Mild to Medium Tolerable

Out of the pouch it looks and smells quite similar to its brother Original Blend but sweeter. The smoke is different: RA lacks of that savory Kentucky edge present in OB, the taste is clearly Burley rounded off with a touch of Virginia and a mild sweetener ( hazelnut, they wrote...), maybe there’s too a pinch of Orientals. As every Amphora, RA is skillfully Cavendish processed so it’s very easy to fill and keep lit, gentle to the mouth without harshness or bites, little to none gurgles, room note isn’t a crowd pleasure but tolerable and it leaves in the pipe just a trace of sweet Burley. Not an enticing blend (and not intended to be) but not dull even, it’s a pleasantly mellow, warm and calming smoke.

Pipe Used: Briars, cobs, meer

Age When Smoked: Fresh

Another good Amphora series. Tastefull, Nut scent, cleary perceptible. Slow burning. Very good product. Fully recommended. Amphora Blends are now made by Imperial Tobacco Company.

A decent tobacco for an OTC. The pouch aroma was quite intriguing and smoking it definitively offered a pleasant change of pace among my usual tobaccos. I do not like it as much as Full Aroma, or the sadly discontinued Black Cavendish, but if I could get some again, I would buy it.

Based on the amazing smell in the bag, I was expecting a more nutty flavour smoke. Not that the smoke was bad in anyway. It was quite enjoyable, mellowing after a few minutes into a nice deep well rounded smoke with the hints of hazelnut as described on the package. I was just expecting a punch in the face of nuttiness, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's definite worth a try.
