good evening gentlemen. tonight's review is something a bit different from my usual line up. This is epos green river by a Greek company called wolfway, it is marketed as a 100% handmade product. Basically all this is, is just pure unadulterated burley, nothing at all added, this is as pure as pipe tobacco that will get, that is unless you make you own.

opening the pouch the first thing that hits you is the thickness of the leaf, coarsely shredded wide ribbons with a few lightly pressed chunks here and there, and when I say lightly pressed I mean lightly pressed, you can break them apart easily.

it comes in a 100g Ziploc and perfect moisture. it is just earthy nutty slightly chocolatey goodness all day long, in fact aroma wise it is strikingly similar to Prince Albert. packing is a doddle, moisture is slightly drier than I like but it proves no problems so, in a well used cob I pack a little tighter than normal and a touch of flame a tamp and another touch of flame and it is off to the races.

Whereas the aroma is strikingly similar to Prince Albert this is where the similarities end. The flavour is really amped up, it's a lovely nutty and earthy smoke, the familiar chocolate notes pop up here and there and there is a nice cigar like deepness to it. body wise it is surprisingly potent, it isn't coniston cut plug strong but you know you have had a smoke of this one. mid way down the bowl, the nutty and cigar notes tone down slightly and incomes a nice woody almost musty note, it isn't off putting, I think it adds a nice dimension to the smoke. it does have a nice bit of sweetness to the blend here and there but not fake sweet, but tobacco sweet. it's not a complex smoke by any means, but it does have some nice dimensions to it which adds up to a rewarding smoke.

Room note won't win you any none smoking friends, it is quite potent and like Prince Albert it does give off a hefty volume of smoke, so maybe one to smoke outside if you are in company or your spouse isn't a fan of your smoking. strength, as said above it is surprisingly potent, it isn't overwhelming but it won't leave you thinking you have smoked hot air.

All in all this is a really nice smoke, it is only available in Greece so it may prove difficult to get hold of but if you happen come across it i would recommend for those who like tobacco as pure as the day it was picked. it is in a sense a Greek version of Prince Albert albeit with much more amped up flavours and quite a considerable kick. in fact if you are in Greece and Prince Albert is your daily bread you won't go wrong with this.

As a little side note the shop I bought this from, I was looking for amphora when I spotted this and picked it up, the lady in the shop was as pleased as punch and strongly recommended this to me, saying her old timer regulars smoked it like it was going out of fashion, that and a bit of patriotic spirit, all i can say is the local old timers know a good thing when they find it.

Well this one troubles me quite the deal. Even though it smells and tastes very pleasant , cocoa and walnut like, I find it quite difficult to smoke it as it is. The tongue bite seems to be unavoidable ,when smoked alone and turns kinda bitter half bottom. Trying some mixing with other blends of the Epos series is mostly recommended for this natural tobacco.

Pure Burley from Wolfway.

Opening the plastic pouch you're met with an instant smell of cocoa, followed by a bit of hay and a hint of mustiness reminiscent of the inside of a humidor. The tobacco is ribbon cut, and the leaf is fairly thick but soft and supple. Overall it is a pleasure to simply touch the ribbons and take in the smell.

It burns cool, has some cocoa, some spice and some sweetness. It is not a complex smoke, but it is a very clean and pure one. A couple of hints of cigar here and there.

I smoked about a third of the 100g pouch straight and it was a very enjoyable experience every time, however when I blended it 1:1 with Wolfway's pure Virginia ribbon did the experience come together. This is a perfect tobacco for blending in my opinion, blended with the Virginia it gave it enough oomph and body to satisfy my need for heavier tastes, while giving it the opportunity to give it's sweetness out. Very nice blending indeed.

So overall, a very high quality tobacco which is perfectly good to smoke as it is, but one that can also elevate other blends or single leaf. I also blended it very successfully with the Wolfway Virginia and MacBaren Vanilla Cream, in fact I'm running out of this blend and will need to get more.

3 stars as it is, 4 as a blending component.

P.S. I didn't find it becoming bitey or bitter past the halfway mark.
