CAP Competition, Madrid (1st Price 2008 Competition CAP Madrid) and for good reason. This blend of mature & bright Virginia leaf, is complemented by the Burly, as the best that the climate and soil of Argentina can reward us with. It is this combination that is the strength of this blend. The Oriental varietals serve to offer nuances of exotic flavors that weave their way thru this tapestry of flavors, complemented and enhanced by the presence of St James Perique and Syrian Latakia. This is a full blend that manages to stay smooth throughout the smoke, which develops nicely, as any good story should. This is the epic of the earth, the sky and the sun of divine character that will leave you digging thru the embers in the bottom of the bowl to discover how the story ends. It's really quite pleasant in this P-Lip Meerschaum Bulldog. Meerschaum Man
The staple from this brand. Libertador is an English mixture with a mighty share of perique and a touch of Burley which contributes to its full body, always staying in the background. The Virginias, although present, are costarring the perfectly balanced Latakia-Oriental-Perique trio.
There are a handful tobaccos in my permanent rotation, and this is one of them. Always satisfying, never overwhelming.
For those fond to comparisons, Libertador is similar to Brebbia Balkan.
Luxury English mixture from Sentimiento Nacional. A round and every day smoke that never disappoints. Perique and Orientals are the fireworks of the mixture surprising with a really nice taste and playing with your nose. Premium tobacco in perfect moisture, burning nicely, leaving only white ashes.
Top Premium Tobacco, very similar to Nightcap but better!, no bite at all even if over-puffed. For Non Smokers smell is not the best, but what else you can expect from a Latakia based tobacco, for smoker, heaven on earth!. Enjoy.
Libertador (created on a base of extremely high quality of argentinean tobacco) is a strong, tasty, round blend for every day smoking. Its delicious complexity gives a very pleasant smoke. If we add to the great flavor and aroma the perfect humidity and a very appropriate burning rithm, we certaily have a top quality tobacco enlighting our pipe.
