Punakawan Culture Edition

This excellent tobaccos comprised selected latakia leaf blended with burley leaf and other traditional tobacco. The result is a amazing tobacco mixture. Delightful for experienced pipe smoker.
Notes: Punakawan is a unique type of character in Indonesian shadow theatre.They generally represent the commoners.The characters of Punakawan indicate various roles, such as the warrior advisors, the entertainers, social critics, and clowns, a further source of truth and wisdom.In Javanese wayang, the punakawan characters consist of four figures namely Semar, Gareng, Bagong, and Petruk. And about the blends, LOYAL would be the best word to describe this blend. We dedicate this blend of our honoured tobacco lovers to achieve their satisfaction. We focus on latakia as our main ingredient and add some black cavendish to smoothen the flavor. We give a pinch of burley for its body and also a pinch of Virginia for its sweetness. Wrapped by the aroma of citrus, fruit and honey would make a perfect match for relaxing occasions.

I say that tobacco is suitable for pipe smokers. Tobacco is rich in flavor and aroma are a lot of curious. In the first puff was smooth and the subsequent suction will appear much flavor from the blend of tobacco. the power of tobacco is classified as medium so comfortable to inhale.

An extraordinary, unique semi aromatic, blended with oriental - truely a remarkable masterpiece!

There's not much more I can add to the glowing reviews here except for one thing - I have figured out what this subtle, enjoyable topping tastes like to me:

It's semi fruity my friends! And it's fantastic!

Two points of caution: The last 3rd of the bowl isn't quite as nice as the first 3rd of the bowl. And it does dry out rather quickly in the tin once you've opened the bag, even if you keep it tightly wrapped in the cellophane bag and the tin tightly closed
Pipe Used: Dunhill root briar
