Dans la même lignée des tabacs non aromatisés à coupe fine tels que les gris, Caporal Export, Saint-Claude et Le supérieur, le 1637 est différent en ce qu'il est dominé par les virginies plutôt que les burleys et kentucky. L'autre différence est que, puisqu' il ne semble pas avoir été torrifié comme les gris, cela lui confère une saveur moins prononcée mais tout de même plus sucrée (quoique, quand même, pas prédominante mais tout de même présente). L'apport en nicotine est très bien, semblable au gris bandeau rouge. L'on goûte l'amertume occasionelle générée par les burleys tout au long du fumage. À essayer si vous aimez les gris mais recherchez un tabac moins terreux et plus sucré, typique des virginies. This tobacco is available in France only and is typical of the traditional, non - cased shag cut tobaccos such as "gris", Caporel Export and Saint-Claude. The main difference is that 1637 is dominated by VAs, which provides a smoother, less rustic taste that releases some hints of sweetness. The occasional bitterness of BUs will manifest itself throughout the pipeful. Vitamine N delivers if you are a fan. Try it out if you are taking a stroll in France and are seeking a simple but satisfying, different tobacco.

This new pipe tobacco is strong. So if you like temper tobaccos, you gonna try. Unfortunately it smokes quickly. My bowl was empty in 30 minutes. Maybe a bit dry, maybe because it was a sample so the end of a pouch with very short cuts. I recommend this blend anyway...

The pouch note of this rarity wafts upward with that combination of scents that define a field after harvest: dry vegetation, sweet fermentation, and the light breeze of freshness. Much like the Semois variety of tobacco, this blend consists of a French Burley which is roasted or air-dried, mixed with an unsweetened fermented Virginia which gives it the gentlest of Cavendish-style sweetness without any cloying elements. The result burns easily because it is very dry, and smokes with a dry grain flavor, slightly tangy almost like dark fired leaf but with a slight caramel effect from the fermented Virginia tobacco. It burns easily down to almost no dottle, and has moderate strength, with the bowl increasing in sweetness and volume of flavor as it goes. Like Semois, this is not for everyone, but for those who like a rich Burley flavor without the somewhat "green" flavor of raw Burley, this smoke delivers a rich and rewarding pipe-sipping experience that could easily be satisfying all day.

Thanks to a sample provided by a kind member of Pipes Magazine Forums.

This tobacco is produced close to the place i live, here is the reason why i tested first. Smoking it right from the package, it's a little too dry. Burns easily, even easily too hot. So used, it's a little harsh, and if nuo tongue bite has been noticed, it produces a nic burning feeling in the throat. But once remoisted, all is changing. 3 days ago i tried remoust it in a tin using a ''mini zeppeling", and a big piece of ''rave celery'', and add aproxymately 40 percent of "cornell 'n' diehl'' latakia. 3 days in the tin with the celery, and letting it dry 15 minutes on a sheet, just to get the perfect moist containt before packing in the pipe. The taste is close to a "not too bad" english blend. The spicy roughness of the "brown tobacco" replacing to me the need of oriental tobacco. Leaving a pretty nice and salty after taste. A tobacco i recomend as a base for blending. Edit for the straight using: Slightly remoisted the easy hot burning is calmed down. The nicotine bit in the throat deems to be vanished too... Finaly a very smokable tobacco as it is... Even if the nic content is maybe a lot head turning if you try to inhale.
