On the pouch it says that this is 100% Greek tobacco, now if that is true it’s only natural that Greek Burley should be quite different, but it still has Burley aroma characteristics like chocolate and cigar leaf.

It comes in dark brown wide cut ribbons which seem very fresh and very natural– is it sun cured? Pouch aroma is quite nice, reminds me of cocoa milk and sweet spices all natural tobacco aromas! Moisture is just perfect to light and get going. Green River produces abundant fluffy smoke of medium strength, weight and medium plus aroma and flavor. Cocoa aroma translates directly to the smoke as do the sweet spices. I can also detect cigar leaf aromas, raisins and walnuts - it almost smells like a Christmas cake. Very good up until before the middle of the bowl where it becomes harsh, not strong, but harsh, meaning it bites a lot and becomes bitter. By the way bite is something I did not encounter with any of the other three tobaccos of the Epos series (Virginia, Smyrna or Basma) however I smoked them. It burns completely to a fine white ash and does not burn particularly hot, although hotter than any of the other three Epos tobaccos. Nicotine is medium plus and room aroma is pleasant (for smokers).

Now, smoking Green River straight is not an option for me as the tongue bite is unpleasant, still it blends well with the other three tobaccos of the Epos series as it adds a tang to these mellow tobaccos and is very compatible aromatically. Would I recommend it? Yes, although it is not an indispensable component in my blending creations. To smoke straight, on the other hand, in no way no matter how nice it tastes and smells because of the bite. Taste wise it's a fantastic all-natural Burley, but I get this bite which I cannot tolerate...

I also tried it with 20% Perique and counter intuitively the bite was considerably less and it produced a bold and flavorful smoke.

Nice cocoa-like burley tin note. The taste almost reminds me of cigars and is medium to full. Pure tobacco, burns quickly though. It is good, but somewhat boring if I light a big bowl. Can be mixed easily with the other epos tobaccos. Somewhat recommended, two to three stars.
