One of our most successful blends. Flue-cured tobaccos from the fields of Zimbabwe and Malawi. Blended with sweet processed Black Cavendish and mild Burley tobaccos. A cocktail of fruit and vanilla flavours gives this blend its unique taste. No wonder Optimal Choice belongs to our bestsellers list.

I purchased 1 oz of this to try and have smoked two bowls, both from cobs, one a CW. First, from the bag it did not have a lot of smell. Kind of flat but with a tad of just basic "tobacco." It lit easy and burned all the way through with occasional tamping but no relights needed. Good amounts of "puffy" smoke. Real easy to "puff" and keep lit. The tase is supposed to be a "cocktail of fruit and vanilla." perhaps I missed that? It did leave a bit of a fruity after taste, long after I was finished smoking it but not much "vanilla." truth be told, I did not really find myself thinking of this as an "aromatic" at all. More of just a simple Burely. Kind of like cigarette tobacco. I am afraid I do not care for cigs so I do not really recomend it though, if I was out of every thing else, I would probably smoke it. There are a few things I would choose this over, Smokers Pride maybe, but that is about all I can say for it. I shall not be purchasing anymore.
