Charatan - Red No.27
Exquisite Virginia tobacco producing areas are best complemented with a Black Cavendish. This very mild blend gets its wonderfully fresh note by finishing with fragrant cherry aromas.

If you can find some of this baccy, it's a diamond in the raw. Lucky for me, my tobacconist has been sitting on a pile of this companies tins, both English and Aromatic. Too bad the company stopped importing to the USA. This stuff is hard to describe. It's very smooth upon the initial light up, then just keeps getting better as you progress towards the bottom of the bowl. I'm not an expert on blended ingredients, but it seems to have a decent amount of Latakia in the mix. I think it may have some Turkish in it as well. I didn't detect any Perique or any Tonquin thank goodness. I reserve my pepper tasting, for my steak and eggs. I was surprised at the quality of this smoke, and the price was nice as well. $6.00 a tin - Yee-Haw! If you can find this stuff on a dusty shelf somewhere, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I was told that this stuff is hermetically sealed, so it oughta have a long shelf life. IMHO, this one is a 4 star winner hands down...
