I was gifted just a small sample of two large bowls of Joseph Martin’s Old Bohan. This is my second encounter with the fine tobacco weed grown in Belgium, the first being La Breumeuse. I enjoyed it (3 stars), but I find that I enjoy Old Bohan even more. The cut is chopped and looks like someone chopped up a cigar. I can see how people can compare this to a cigar, but as a regular cigar smoker for most of my life, I find very little comparison in the taste department. OB is very earthy in flavor and unlike my encounter with La Breumeuse, I find this to offer more complexity with different flavors appearing throughout the smoke. I seldom, if ever, make food comparisons to tobacco as my palate is not that refined. But I need to make an exception in this case as I am reminded of a dark, earthy brown bread. It is also a bit malty. I can’t recall ever tasting a tobacco such as this one. OB is medium for me in the strength department and doesn’t bite. Due to the dryness, it can get hot if pushed. The unique flavor of this blend will not be for everyone. Personally, I don’t see this as a future part of my rotation, but it is an exceptional tobacco that I hope to enjoy on occasion.
