Noir is the second tobacco in our Nottingham Lace series, a selection of Perique tobacco. A smoky and smooth blend with a distinct Perique twang to it, this tobacco is very deep and rich. The use of a English style black Cavendish base, give this blend a creamy core with a woody and slightly smoky taste. A small amount of Turkish Izmir and various Gold Leaf Virginia's add a little sweetness and keeps the tobacco burning freely. The addition of Perique (10%) adds some spice and stewed fruit elements to the already complex flavours.
