|I was looking for a non flavored Altadis offering. The description of this blend was similar to Walnut (mixture of 7 tobaccos with hint of latakia) so I gave it a try.
The tin aroma is sweet smokey but subtle.
The cut is rough, moisture is perfect, it lights easily and requires only one or two relights. Feels springy and looks colorful. It smells of tobacco, no heavy casing at all.
Initial light brings out the latakia, then settles down to a smooth medium bodied smoke. The latakia is slight, some sweet oriental is present and to me it seems as if there is some perique (or maybe a perique liquid spray flavor) since my mouth gets that perique cottoney dry feeling. To me there was a bit of nose and mouth tingle, quite pleasent. No tongue bite.
Overall pleasent and it has the familiar Altadis english flavor all their english blends have. This is one of the lighter blends.
If you like Walnut, try this.
