Schürch Mogano 146

Here's a very special blend in all its aspects. The uniqueness comes from the Havana tobaccos used. If a tobacco could be descibed as "creamy" in taste, this is definitely the one. A great pleasure when smoked after dinner. If you occasionally (or often) enjoy a quality cigar, you should try this mixture.

This is a change of pace smoke for me. I do not consider it an English blend. The overall effect of the smoke to me is light latakia and Havana tobacco. The Havana puts me in mind of a cigar, but does not taste like a cigar. It adds a certain roundness and mellowness to the flavor. I also pick up a bit of a neutral sweetener. The quality of all the components is first rate, and the flavor is unique. I have never tasted anything quite like it. I keep it on hand for when I want something very different and nothing else will do. I expect that when I run out, I will order more. Three stars and well recommended. Paddy.

I was pretty worried when approaching this tobacco, having read the previous reviews, expecting a really strong blend. At the beginning of the bowl I couldn't notice it, but the power builds up going down. The flavour is something you don't step into very often, really spicy and balanced; you can taste clearly both the latakia and the cigar leaf. I like to smoke a cuban cigar here and there, and love that earthy and leathery taste. A great blend.

Since I couldn't find this blend in the US, our friends @ SYNJECO in Switzerland were used via the net. I would class this one as a long ribbon cut of dark brown to black tobaccos with an ideal mositure content. The greenish/grey Havanna leaf is less prevalent but also obvious. The pouch and room aromas are strong; inviting to me, but objectionable to non-smokers. Even with a closed pouch, the aroma was sensed by others within 5'. This blend is the closest in taste that I've come to smoking a cigar in a pipe bowl. However, the added Latakia compliments the Havanna and the result is a rich but cool smoke that is consistent from bowl to bowl. However, pipes are infected with the flavors that last thru multiple bowls of other blends so dedicate a pipe or more to this one. Probably a mid- sized bowl is best since I found long smokes just too heavy and intense. Even after the nicely formed grey ash is emptied, the Havanna flavor is still quite pronounced on the stem. The packing and burning rate result in an effortless smoke. Although in the same vein as James Fox's The Bankers, this blend is even higher-test and too strong and powerful for me as a steady diet. However, after a meal, it's really enjoyable and the Havanna/Latakia taste lingers long after the pipe goes out. It is not suggested for a novice pipe smoker unless they are transitioning from cigars or plan to pass out.

Another winner from Schurch. I have read descriptions of various English blends with the addition of cigar leaf, but this is the first one I have tried.

Like other Schurch tobaccos, this is a rather wild cut and comes a little moister than I like. I knew I was going to like this one after just the first puffs. The cigar leaf complements the latakia very nicely. The only problem I had with this was that it tended to dry out my palate somewhat, so that I was having to wet down my mouth more often than usual with something to drink.

The flavor is big and unusual because of the cigar leaf. Burning qualities are excellent. The flavor builds near the bottom of the bowl, though there is not much variation of flavors. If you like strong latakia and want something a little different, give this a try.
