Citrus casing too strong on initial light after charring light...extremely strong for about first third of bowl and then settles back to support tobacco flavor...Needs to be toned down a bit...Perhaps if a bit more Cavendish were used, or perhaps cellaring for a while...

Pipe Used: various for testing

Age When Smoked: fresh after receiving

This stuff is ok but I'm not sure I will ever want anymore of it. The fruit and vanilla flavors leave a slightly weird aftertaste.

In addiction to be found in cans, in Brazil this mixture may be also purchased in bulk, not expensive in Brazil, but is hard to find, only few tobacconists have it.

In Brazil this blend is so-called "Planta Anno MMVIII Exotic Mixture".

Described by Planta also as "Vivacious, contrasting, exotic and exquisite". The correct caracter... fully different, distinctive.

Knowing other more famous Planta blends: Pergamon, Cellini... I expected a good stuff! really do it. Planta products are very good.

This tobacco is wonderfull... The scent, the flavour in the pouch, is fruity... In the smoke, the flavour is sweet...

The taste during smoking? have elements od Figs, Chocolate, Pineapple, and spices, such as Cinnamon, Indian Clove and Black Pepper. At the same time that is sweet (Cavendish), is also bite (Burley) and peppery.

The Burley and the Cavendishs are clear noted, over the Virginia, but the mixture have good body.

It s destined to be one of my favorites, even better than Cellini Forte. Splendid! 4 Stars but merits much more.
