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!

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 !
