Moroccan Bazaar - a homage to Morocco. Who has ever visited a Oriental spice market won't forget the diversity of scents and colors from 1001 nights. Various Virginias as ribbon cut and ready rubbed flakes, as well as a hint of black cavendish are on one side flavored with the spicy flavors of pepper, cinnamon, anise, incense, clove blossoms, coriander and on the other side with the sweet notes of the Orient, such as ginger, jasmine, honey and figs. The outcome is a medium strength, pleasantly sweet and characterful blend. Flowery, aromatic, full-bodied and exotic.

Notes: Flavorings: Pepper, Cinnamon, Anise, Incense, Clove Blossoms, Coriander, Ginger, Jasmine, Honey, Figs.

Released at Lohmar Pipe Show 2018.

Medium to Strong Medium to Strong Medium to Full Very Pleasant

The dark fruity, earthy, citrusy, grassy Virginias are the base of the blend, and are a lead component. The buttery sweet, mildly floral and spicy, woody, earthy Orientals play just below the level of the Virginias, but at times rises up to compete and occasionally, surpasses the Virginias. Sweetened or unsweetened, I only detect the black cavendish here and there. The pepper is one of the more obvious toppings. The very floral clove has an important say in the proceedings as, to a little lesser degree, the incense, ginger, honey, and coriander. The figs, anise, and jasmine are the least noticeable toppings, but in a wide bowl, they reveal themselves a tad more. The tobaccos are sublimated by the toppings to a medium extent, and essentially provide a subtext of flavor. It takes a little time to figure them all out, too, as they meld well with each other. The strength is medium, and the taste level steps a little past that line. The nic-hit is closer to medium than it is to mild. Won’t bite, but the spice may slightly tingle the tongue of a fast puffer.

Smooth, smooth, smooth! Again I got struck by surprise... an aromatic blend that would really appeal to me? I was sceptic, once again! But after the Darkwood Scenery blend was such a pleasant surprise for me, I found the courage to fill a clay full of the Moroccan Bazaar this morning.

The tin-note is heavenly! Highly aromatic, yet most natural. I don't get all of the promised flavors, but what I get is delicious! In forefront a delicate scent of figs, dipped into (forest) honey and seasoned with a whiff of cinnamon. In the background there's a slight foral quality, which I like!

Mostly broken Virginia flake scraps, with very little Black Cavendish thrown into the mix... and the decision to go for a Virginia was a genius idea I suppose! The piquant-sweet, refreshening aroma of the Virginias (of which I assume are bright and red in it) pairs so damn well with flavorings, and makes this blend for me!

A warm, dark sweetness, like that of molasses, or forest-honey dominates the smoke, which is closely followed by rich fig aroma and topped with a whiff of cinammon. The floral quality from the tin-note is more of a backrow player now. A steady harmonious interplay of a smooth sweetness and some mild, yet delicately piquant spice notes from the Virginias. Halfway through the bowl the coriander takes a step forward and is enhancing the smoke with its lightly sharp and peppery piquancy in the background - nice!

For me this is a tad better than the Darkwood Scenery! Whilst I gave the Darkwood 3,5 and rounded it up to 4, this one is a full-grown 4-star rating for me. Very pleasant, very smooth and very silky smoke. Albeit there are plenty of flavorings applied all of them behave very unobtrusive and melt with eachother, enhancing eachothers qualities!

Yup.. Hans Wiedemann makes some great aromatic blends, far from the danish-style, more in the alley of those english style aromatics, such as 3P's, University or Erinmore Flake, St. Bruno and alike.

Medium Very Strong Medium Tolerable

Although I have never been in Moraccan bazaar I have met a dew bizzare Moraccans . This is really something different , though very enjoyable . Upon opening the can one encounters something seldom , if ever seen . long brown flakes with an amazing aroma . Spices galore . The tobacco is a little dry in the can and might need a bit of hydrating . The relatively dry tobacco lights easily and burns fast causing a bit of tongue bite . The taste is really interesting . Basically a virginia mixture with a little noticeable black cavandish , the spices re-define the virginias in many interesting ways . I seemed to taste honey , figs ginger and some fragrant floral notes . Unable to really pick any one out as dominant I simply enjoyed the feeling of , well , being in a bazzaar . This might go really well with a drink like absenth or a strong Moroccan coffee . It would be nice to have a belly dancer present and some middle eastern music . All kidding aside , this is sort of a mood tobacco that might have transportave qualities . Simply a totally different experience when life gets a little boring .Not your every say tobacco but it will have it's moments .
