Round taste, great cognac aroma, you can hear the hibiscus leaves burn while smoking without any tongue biting, in my case.
Opening the tin feels like opening a Remy Martin V.S.O.P. The tobacco inside gives the impression that is ready to be smoked ... on a waterpipe! Its feeling of humidity is very strange, indeed.
Loading the pipe and lighting it, is just a pleasant surprise ... for everybody in the room!
I have tried a couple of aromatic tobaccos. Most of them were full of chemical ingredients that made me throw them away with disgust.
Some of them (Reiner Yellow, Sillem's - Copenhagen Blend, A & C Petersen - Caledonian Melange No.10 Highland Cream) although of excellent quality, they had the same harsh feeling on the throat for a few hours after my daily bowl.
Kolibri was the outsider that surprised me the most. Round taste, no bite at all, and a feeling of cleanliness in my mouth after smoking. The tobacco does not leave any trace of existence after a few minutes the smoking has ended.
I will keep searching for aromatic tobaccos, but this one for sure made a difference and has a place in my cellar.
I have just opened my second box of Kolibri.
It is in a new tin box of 80grams and the tobacco's moisture is not different from what you expect of a great quality pipe tobacco. Seems that my first box had a lucky coin isnide!
