When the first wafts of mist rise in the late summer and early autumn, the time has come for dark, strong tobaccos. The Dark Moor unites the best brown Virginias in its base, which have been refined with Kentucky and perique. Peaty-smoky Kentucky leaves, nuanced with a hint of perique, in harmony with these brown Virginias result in a sweet, strong blend, which carries an unmistakable smoky-spicy character. This character is reflected not only in a deep, harmonious blend, but also in our created labels that express his soul. A soul that rises in the mist in the morning and loves to join a whisky in the evening.

The brown Virginias provide a bit of tangy dark and dried fruit, earth, wood, some tart and tangy citrus, bread, smoke, grass and a light floral quality as the lead components. The peaty/ vegetative, floral, spicy, woody, earthy, dry, herbal, nutty, smoky, lightly sweet and sour dark fired Kentucky is a supporting player. The spicy, raisiny, plumy, earthy, figgy perique offers a undercurrent of flavor in the background. The strength is a step short of the medium mark, while the taste is medium. The nic-hit is a slot below the strength threshold. No chance of bite or harshness, and has few small rough edges. Well balanced and mildly complex, it burns cool and clean at a reasonable pace with a very consistent, moderately sweet, and a tad more spicy, woody taste that translates to the short lived, pleasant after taste and room note. Leaves little dampness in the bowl, and requires an average number of relights. Can be an all day smoke. Three and a half stars.

Presented as a dark brown ribbon cut with sort of a nutty tin note , the tobacco is at perfect moisture level and ready to smoke right out of the can . This is mainly a brown virginia mixture with some Kentucky and very little perique . It is totally topping free , simply pure tobacco . The taste can only be described as exotic and unique . I have never tasted a tobacco even a little like this one , it's in a class by itself . The only comparison might be HU Morocan Bazzar , which is similar in nature but an aromatic . The smoke itself is deep , dark virginia , very tasty and a little on the dry side . It causes no bite and burns down to a white ash if smoked properly IE; slowly . I cannot even begin to think of the alchemy that Han's uses to contrive this trip to the Shook in Tangers . A deep and dark exotic treat for after dinner , maybe best served with a glass of rum .
