Schürch Zaffiro 129

Five different Virginias, a touch of Java (cigar leaf), Latakia and Louisiana perique. This is definitely a world class English mixture, with extremely high quality tobaccos and all the talent that Hans is known to possess. At first you get a good whiff of Latakia which promptly allows the taste of the other ingredient tobaccos come in and join in the symphony! The taste is definitely spicy, and the aroma is most pleasing to (that is, in) the nose. The rather homogeneous cut of the tobaccos used results in an easy and regular combustion. There is a hint of bitter that combats the more established sweetness but consistently fails. A great after dinner smoke.

Intresting mixture, that confirm the good tobacos used by Scurch for him proposal. A good english mixture but not so original or particular. Probably the perfect blend for who desire begin own experiece with em with a good product, good tobacos. Elegant, but not my favorite in Schurch blends (at the moment it's better, for me, the Blend N. 128).
