Oriental forward with a bit of Cigar Leaf, Virginia, and Burley. This is a tasty medium strength smoke that won't bite.

Notes: New blend, mid 2014, at 4noggins.

I was pleased to be able to add this tobacco to the database. New to pipes.

The aroma of this bulk tobacco was akin to a hickory fire, with a deep fig or raisin. Deep is the word. The taste does not disappoint, and this is indeed Oriental forward in spicy fashion. As a cigar smoker I like the leaf which gives a bit of fullness, with occasional whiffs of burley warmth and nuttiness. Altogether pleasant and bite free for this smoker's sensitive tongue (and only fair technique). Nice. This blend has encouraged me to try other Oriental forward blends, perhaps the Grand Orientals by McClelland, like the Classic Samsun.
