Ethereal Orient grades from the best growing regions of Bulgaria and strong darkfired Kentucky tobaccos characterize the Flanagan flake. Sweet Zambia Virginia, a touch of Perique and hand-stripped Virginias from India round out this powerful and superbly blend. A full-bodied, but elegant flake for friends of spicy and natural tobaccos.

No added flavour!

Medium to Strong Extremely Mild Full Tolerable

The boldness of the dark fired Kentucky merges with the spicy Orientals and a light addition of perique to create a tasty, tingly, mildly sweet, fairly earthy flavor. The earthy sweetness comes from the various Virginias, which are also naturally sweet. The Kentucky is woodsy and a bit smokey with spice. I get a hint of nuttiness at times, too. It's fairly consistent in taste, though at times, the spice is more prominent than other times. Burns even, slow and dry with no harshness. If you like spicy blends that have strength and some complexity, but won't knock you off your feet, you'll find this an enjoyable experience. Goes exceptionally well with coffee or tea, and if it fits your flavor profile, you'll smoke it more than once a day.

Medium Extremely Mild Full Pleasant to Tolerable

I think that HU-Tobacco/Hans Wiedemann acted rather courageously when composing this blend, a Virginia with significant footprints of Orient and Kentucky. The outcome is both innovative and surprising!

The tin aroma is pleasantly mild, sweetish, a bit flowery with hints of hay flower.

The taste is little sweetish, with varying pleasant taste notes in a nice play of caramel, mildly spicy, fruity reminiscent to tomato, earthy, creamy... simply manifold elements which makes this blend shine. Further down the bowl, the Kentucky plays somewhat into the foreground.

In conclusion an absolutely pleasant and innovative blend, showing its full talent in medium sized to larger bowls. Go to get it !
