A blend of all Turkish/Oriental tobaccos, Yenidje, Basma, and Samsun, not sure of the proportions of each... The Samsun gives a deeper flavor and strength to what otherwise would be a typical mild Turkish tobacco (my guess based on former experience). Slow burning. Don't know for certain, but my guess is that it is a fairly low nicotine- like most Turkish tobaccos- blend. Originally purchased because there was no Smyrna to be had at the time. Would buy again.

Age When Smoked: Unknown

Purchased From: PipesandCigars

Similar Blends: A fairly common Turkish flavor- bit stronger than my preferred Smyrna. Wide-cut..

Very satisfying purely Oriental smoke. I'd walk more than a mile for this Sutliff camel. Great to smoke as is or to blend with VA, perique, latakia, to come up with your own English blend.

Pipe Used: Charatan

Bag note coco and a bit spicy. I purchase this as a blending tobacco. It gives a mild coco note to other tobaccos and a bit of spice. Smoked alone it is quite harsh and has rough edges. Burns fast as well. Close to an unfiltered cigarette. Nic hit is mild. Not an all day smoke but very nice for blending.

Jar note of plummy, floral and spices. The fat ribbon cut is an even mix of brown, tan and dark brown. Tobacco is on the dry side, no prep needed. Burns slow with few relights once lit. The strength is medium and nic is mild. No flavoring detected. Taste is medium and mostly consistent, with complex notes of wood, spices, mildly sweet, earth, floral, spicy peppery, mild tangy, very dry, stewed sour plummy, mildly bitter, citrus peel or zest, a herbal vegetation background note, and a peppery retro. I couldn't verify the components, but supposedly Yenidje, Basma, and Samsun. Room note is pleasant to tolerable, and aftertaste is great.

First off, when I first sniffed this in the bag there was something faint but off-putting that made me recoil in displeasure. If I had to identify the aroma I’d say the earthy-vegetative smell of bean sprouts. Could be a bit of harmless Geosmin taint. Taste-wise on my first trial, there was a vaguely burnt rubber taste that indicated some minor off-gassing, so some dry time took care of that easy enough. Once settled, the best I can say is that this offers a generic cereal taste (Corn Flakes) with nuances of alfalfa sprouts. I’ve put this in a separate location from my blending cupboard and will re-evaluate in a year or two to see if it improves.

If you are looking to explore Turkish varietals I’d start with Sutliff TS-19, C&D Izmir, or even Stokkebye Turkish Export 84 (which develops nicely as it ages). Meanwhile, caveat emptor on TS-24: don’t buy by the pound until you’re sure this is something you’ll like!
