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 Tigray". I really like the look of this blend, about half black and among the rest, broken flakes. The black half is indeed Latakia and being of the Syrian variety, it is more aromatic and less leathery/smoky than its Cyprian counterpart. Hans calls this "an uncomplicated blend" and I think he means that it can be smoked all day long with minimum attention. "Uncomplicated" does not mean, however, that this is not a very tasty, creamy smooth and biteless tobacco, because it is. Not one to make an immediate, deep impression but a great latakia blend to be enjoyed all day long nevertheless.
