100% fire cured Kentucky, fermented and aged respecting the Valtiberina tradition. Produced in the Sansepolcro factory (translated from Italian).

This tobacco is composed by Tuscan Kentucky from Italian cigars, in fact the word "cimetta" meanig the final part of this cigar type. The tobacco appear very dry and friable, the aromas are dominated by wood and peat but also, in minority, leather and earthly; during the smoke is very aggressive and impetuous, full bodied and satisfying.

Notes: This tobacco is a product that is an integral part of the Italian tradition, the "cimette" are ticked at the end of the manual roll of the cigar, then they left to rest. After adequately humidified and aired, the smoker can chop them and fill the pipe with first quality natural Kentucky, fire-cured with oak wood, traditional fermented and free of any additives.

Cimette are not a "tobacco pipe", they are the terminal part of italian Kentucky cigars. The quality of this tobacco is very high: fermented and without additives. The fragrances are typical of Kentucky fire-cured tobacco so we can detect leather, eartly, peat. During the smoke the taste is bitter but not unpleasant, pungent and very spicy on the nose, the combustion is not regular and needs to be re-ignited. This tobacco is very dry when is opened so needs to be humidified. The use is only recommended to experts and just to reinforce other tobaccos or homemade mixtures.

Pipe Used: Anatra dalle Uova d'Oro

Age When Smoked: two weeks

Purchased From: Tabacconist in Italia

100% pure Kentucky from Italy. Impossible to smoke it straight. Really strong. Of course it’s a blending tobacco. It is very very dry and it is necessary to hydrate it. Great for cleaning your pipe. The cut is not a tobacco cut. We are talking about cigar scraps; to be precise remnants of the last part of a Tuscan cigar. Expensive scraps! And it is necessary to rub them before putting in a pipe. In a mixture you have to use 25% of this at most, not for the taste, taste is good, but for the strength. And if you want to smoke it straight I advise smoking very slowly, in a small pipe and strictly on a full stomach. Pay attention to the throat: it “scrapes” a lot. Three stars as a blending tobacco but only one if smoked straight. For all these reasons, in my personal rating system (from 1 to 10) my score is 6 and two stars.
