The Masai – a pleasantly sweet, medium strong blend. A basis of Honeydew Virginia ready rubbed is blended with strong Malawi Burley, dark-fired Kentucky and some Syrian Latakia. The result is a medium-strong mixture with the balanced sweetness of slightly smoky and chocolaty tones. The Masai – an interesting and perfectly balanced blend of spice and sweetness.

The proprietor of HU-Tobacco, Hans Wiedemann, has recently introduced a new line of tobacco's blended in co-operation with the Italian pipe maker Foundation by Musico. Being the big fan I am of his blends, I ordered them all and this is my review of "the Masai". This one contains 18% Latakia that spices up the rest of its constituent parts: a sweet honeydew Virginia, Burley and Kentucky. To me, there is something Mac Barenish about this blend and it reminds me of HH Highland Blend, only without the Glenfarclas used in that one. Still a very tasty, slow-burning and sweetish (but definately not an aromatic) blend that is light on the palate.
