Comune is a cheap italian blend, entirely produced from italian harvested tobaccos of the Kentucky Burley variety.

Many years ago it was sold in small papers 20grms packs, and it was clearly intended to be for RYO use. Now it comes in 40grms sealed pouches, and seems to me the cut is a bit larger, nevertheless in the shag category. The pouch preserves an acceptable moisture and it's use for the pipe smoking.

The pouch smells very nice natural tobacco. A faint note of spirit of some kind over a earthy/woodsy base. I would think to something of the like of McB's Burley London Blend, but stronger and less sophisticated.

A Tundra by Savinelli # 129 (6mm filter removed), straight with a "generous" bowl, has been in use for a number of bowfuls.

Due to the cut and low moisture level, this is tipical one-match-and-forget. Slow draw has been my care, resulting in a rewarding typical burley-sh smoke, very smooth with cigarish notes. Never bitter, biting nor wet. Of course we are in the mono-dimensional field, I have not expected many things happening ... The strength starts from medium and develops to strong.

Nice experience, and good tobacco to reinforce some milder VaB, I think.
