The newest of the Caminetto range, Oro-Gold. golden Virginias are combined with nutty burley and sweet black cavendish. To finish off the blend gentle the gentle flavours of sun blessed dried fruits and creamy caramel are added as a seduction to the senses.
I've had this cellared for a few months now, I wanted to wait until my supply of opened aromatics started to dwindle before popping this one. I mean, it cost me 33 euros plus post and packaging from Denmark so I was in no hurry to have it gone! As it goes, I can't see it lasting very long, the one word that jumps to mind is Delicious!
The pleasure begins before a bowl's even burning: it smells divine! And then, after drooling over the smell, as it doesn't need drying it can be piped immediately. The caramel comes through exceptionally in the smoke: very creamy and sweet, but whatever the dried fruits are I don't know as they're nowhere to be seen; it seems like a simple caramel aromatic. The tobaccos' have a full taste to them, but surprisingly aren't too sticky; I'd expected an overly sticky Cav' Vanilla taste, but I get quite an omnipotent Burley nuttiness taking the leading role. Due to the heavy topping it can give my tongue a bit of grief if I puff like a train, so I take I easier; that doesn't ruin the enjoyment though, it just encourages me to relax with my technique a bit!
The nicotine's just below medium from Oro, and the room-note's absolutely sublime: creamy, rich, caramel.
This is one of the best aromatics I've loaded with:
