Africa, the dark continent – like no other part of the world, it unites mysticism and modern spirit, a plethora of cultures and different ways of living, but also poverty and misery. Wars, hunger, and corruption define this continent just as much as scenic beauty, lush vegetation and pride. “Out of Africa“ Ready Rubbed Flake interprets this great diversity through tremendous varieties in taste, ranging from fruity dry to lively and sweet. Strong-flavored Burley grades along with dark, pressed Virginia and a hint of Perique form the basis of the subtle though seductive flavor which makes this Broken Flake something special. “Out of Africa“ is an interesting and complex homage to this part on earth and to friends of the finest quality tobacco blends.

The burley has a near-medium strength; nutty with some molasses, earth, and a hint of cocoa. The dark, pressed Virginia is earthy, mildly tangy, richly dark stewed fruit sweet with some citrus and a touch of grass. The perique is a minor player, mildly spicy with a few raisin, fig, and date notes, adding some complexity to the blend. The spice is more noticeable once you’re part way into the smoke. I’m not sure about the toppings, but they are sweet, mildly floral, smoky and woody. Among the fruit notes are tones of pineapple and perhaps apricot. The toppings don’t sublimate the ready rubbed tobaccos that much as the burley and Virginias work well together as the major components. The flavor is at the medium level, and is consistent to the end. No bite or harsh spots to be found; burns smooth and cool with few relights. The nic-hit is just a fraction over being mild. The strength is mild to medium, and could be an all day smoke for the experienced smoker. Leaves very little moisture in the bowl, and will burn to ash. Has a sweet room note and after taste.

I bought this tobacco because I like the name of this Blend. It sounds mysterious. And it was an good idea. The Out of Africa is a broken middelbrown flake. The tin smell ist sweet, decent fruity and spicy. I can`t define the smell correctly. But it is not the usual German fruit flavour. The Taste of this Blend ist like the tin smell fruity and spicy and good medium strong. After the half of the bowl, the taste of the tobacco gets stronger and the fruit flavour is now in the background, but allways present and in connection with the tobacco base a really nice duo. I smoke not often aromatic tobaccos, but this one is really interesting and not boring. The Out of Africa is not really an aromatic Blend - it`s a blend between aromatical and natural flavour.

really recommended
