this is going to be one of my go-to tobaccos, but it's not very easy to find it even at specialized tobacconists. I don't know whether the ToI product line is going to be discontinued, sure it has not encountered great success in Italy...
I have just ended a more recent tin (while I'm still cellaring a couple five years old or even more), and my previous review is substantially confirmed. Basically Killarney is a short-ribbon-cut-Virginia with small parts of Orientals and just a pinch of Perique. Would also say that the strength doesn't actually reach the medium-to-strong grade, and I'm feeling very confortable with as an all-day smoke. I have also found some similarities to Peterson's Irish Oak and so good using them in rotation.
Still three full stars out of four.
Packed in small round tin like the others of the same family. Label of light cream colour with the usual celtic harp. It also describes the tobacco as "mild and pleasant". At the tin opening it smells natural tobacco on the light side; difficult to detect the Perique at the beginning, but with time an acetic note says that it's there. Cut is short-length/medium width ribbon, humidity is good for immediate smoke, doesn't needs drying and doesn't become dry so quick. Combustion is good, two matches are enough, it burns quite dry until the bottom, no wet goopy at all. Strength starts from mild to medium and develops to medium to strong through the bowl. Flavour is natural tobacco with a particular cigarish note which I would be helped to understand if it's the Perique's role or there's some Kentucky instead of the oriental the distributor's pamphlet declares to enter in the mix. For this reason it is not an all-day smoke. No tongue biting on condition you sip it quietly. Good product indeed, I recommend it! PS: Sometimes it makes me think to a luxury version of Trinciato Italia: would any italian reviewer check my opinion ?
