..Quite a nice tobacco...It is an elegant pipe tobacco as well. While mostly is a blend of several types of Turkish as well as some very "soft" Virginia leaf and is well rounded, and I don't see this as one-dimensional at all... Far too many nuances for that.

Very even burn rate and keeping it a bit moist brings out more flavor. Frankly, I was looking for a Turkish tobacco to replace SG Turkish Blend which I have been told will no longer be in production. If that indeed happens, I will enjoy the Newminster as a reasonable replacement. Smoked in a group 4 or larger pipe and could be an all day tobacco.

...a pipe is to be savored...

This has some really nice flavors. Orientals lead the Virginias by a small margin. Surprisingly fuller and deeper than expected. Mild to medium in body and medium in flavor. The only criticism I can level is that the Virginias give a little bit of a lip tingle. No bite, just a tingle on the lips. I enjoyed smoking this. 3+

Purchased in bulk form, this is a flavorful and reasonably well-balanced blend of Orientals and Virginias and it certainly does display an Oriental character. There is some sweet richness and a bit of the exotic in the flavor. However, the component tobaccos are a little too raw and unrefined and this results in a somewhat harsh smoke.

There is enough here for 2-stars, but nothing more.

Similar Blends: Newminster (No. 80) Norway Pipe Cut--the Norway blend finds Burley substituted for some of the Virginia found in the Oriental blend resulting in a rounder, smoother and more civilized blend.
