Tor - Tor Turkish Budget Shag.
This one's another from the selection of strictly 'Budget' tobacco's I bought, and like some of the others, it's a better smoke than I expected.
Okay, if you enjoy deep Balkan's, strong VaPer's, or even Aromatic's, this will bore you senseless. But, if you require a good 'Working Tobacco', this would be great....... I think!
There isn't really loads to be said, due to the basic attributes it would require 'manufacturing' words if I were to want to write a long review.
The basics are thus: it's a medium brown, mid-sized shag, with a few lightly coloured flecks in there too. As it's loosely packaged it's been able to breath a little, and that's made the hydration just right. Then it's easily lit, the burn's even, and the smoke's fairly cool. The flavour? Again, this is a basic review point, it's a simple Virginia one: a bit grass-like, with some hay, but it only has a little citrus sharpness to it. And finally we have the note: a simple Virginia one.
For what it is, a budget blend, it deserves three stars.
